The British coastal townships had endured many Viking invasions, leaving women raped and men slaughtered. This recounting of one such invasion, includes the attitude of one of the women, who was a result of a raid years earlier, and whose Nordic features had always segregated her from the other woman.
I enjoyed the audio rendition of this book, which greatly enhanced my appreciation of this story.

My second (short) read/listen from author Emmanuelle de Maupassant, although I own a number of her works it was the audio that enticed me to read this one since I own both the Kindle and the Audible editions. As much as I don't care for short stories, I really liked this one. It takes something special to write a short story and in this, my second read from this author it all comes together. The only way it could be better would be to expand to a longer story and since it serves as an intro to a series it works. The accent of the narrator adds to the listening enjoyment.
What did you like about this audiobook?
The work doesn't shy from mentioning rape, but it doesn't interfere with the relationship between the central characters
Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?
The characters were well differentiated with consistent voices.
What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?
I felt the narrator lost some of the natural rhythm of the writing.
Do you have any additional comments?
The sex was pretty hot, though I would have liked more!
Thoroughly enjoyable listen. Short, saucy and very erotic story - not for the shy reader!
