As you guys know, we're history buffs in our house, so when this book info came across by email, I was like YES! Especially since it deals with Celtic and Viking history!
This is an interesting blend of fiction and historical theory:
Review: This was a very interesting book! The author does a great job putting you right into the middle and being able to see both sides- the inhabitants and the foreigners, of Ireland, and seeing what happens when they meet and attempt to merge. In some ways the book reminded me of the books by Jean M. Auel- that same personalization of the characters that make you care for what happens to them, and keeps you turning the pages. The historical facts and descriptions kept you enthralled as well.
I finished the book in 2 days and was quite taken with it! My only disagreement, so to speak, was that the book ended suddenly, like the editors had said knock out 50 pages and the author went back and had to shred it down. After such a leisurely tale, you expected the book to be continued, not to suddenly jump back to present day and end. Perhapys the author will get to go back and find another book at the end!
