I just finished this and can't help but feel like this was written with the intention of being a standalone book. The story is well written but feels like it was just chopped into parts in order to sell more copies. While I generally understand this strategy and understand the importance of ending with a cliffhanger for those stories; but I almost feel like it is degrading to the author by implying that the book could not sell to a decent sized audience. This also precludes the book from receiving awards and making progress on lists and from being reviewed by publications. All of this being said, maybe the writing quality and story is lacking in the further installments. That would make sense of it being broken down into a series of short novellas. I have a feeling that this isn't the case. I will most definitely be reading the rest of the story in the series. The author and narrator both did excellent work.
I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher or narrator in exchange for an honest review.

This audiobook was a good start to a three part series; however, it ends on a cliffhanger.
I liked this story was told from the POV of the two main characters, Erik and Linzi, and has great character development. Erik leads Viking warriors into battle for his "king" but would rather go back to his own lands to find a wife and start a family. Linzi, who is coming of age lives with her father and brother and helps take care of their farm. However, after her brother goes to fight in the war, she left to care for her father and the farm. Linzi and Erik's paths meet when she comes across him wounded and unconscious.
Hugh Loughlan did a great job narrating the story.
I will be on the lookout for book 2 and 3.
