Publisher's Summary

Sometimes the monsters are real.
For Tor and Skald this is their first Viking raid, and their minds are filled with thoughts of honor and glory. What awaits them are beasts - huge, hairy, and fanged, the Alma, who will not suffer intruders in their domain. When the Vikings slaughter a female Alma, they soon find themselves in the middle of a battle with vicious creatures bent on bloody revenge. Now they must stand and be counted, for destiny awaits in the mountains, where the hairy ones dance.

Viking Sci-fi

As a Viking history enthusiast and practioner of the old ways, I thought this book would be a nice change from that of the sagas. However, I am a little disappointed in the author's research, if he did any, prior to writing this book.

The storyline takes us on a Viking ship and through a terrible storm. The author writes that a viking on the deck of the ship is swept overboard by a wave, and immediately taken to Valhalla. Well that's not how it works. Men don't just go to Valhalla when they die. In order to go to Valhalla one must die bravely in battle, not swept into the sea by a wave.

The author also continues to refer to the leader of the Vikings as "captain." Once again a little bit of research would have been nice. The correct term should have been "Jarl" pronounced "yarl."

After battling abominal snowmen and after almost all of the viking crew bare killed, the ending of the book leaves listeners hanging. The somewhat abrupt ending leads me to think that maybe there will be a second book?

The narration of this book was, in my opinion, the best part of the book.

Vikings vs Snow Monsters & a Whole Lot More

First, I love Viking stories either historical or fictional. So I knew I had to give this a try and it was really great.

At first I thought the story would be a little bit campy, but it isn't at all. It has vivid descriptions and lots of action. The backstories for both Vikings and this new race of creatures they come upon is done very well!

Only negative is I wish it was a bit longer. Maybe more adventures for Tor and Skald in the future? Hope so!!

I received this book for free from the narrator/author in exchange for an unbiased review.
