Post VIKING SAGA -- free historical novel

VIKING SAGA is a pulse-pounding literary historical thriller, set in 793 AD, when Norway was ruled by many small kingdoms and folk still worshipped the old gods. Halfdan the Black -- a young fighter and beer-soaked poet, with a Norse father and African mother -- vows revenge for the killing of his king. Halfdan's fate leads him through actual historical events, such as the raid on England's Lindisfarne nunnery and the first Norse contacts with Christianity. This spare, cunningly ironic novel is set against a brutal backdrop of life in the "Dark Ages", and features violent action, a unique love-story, odd twists, cool humour, primitive poems and more. Well-researched and fast-moving, VIKING SAGA follows Halfdan the Black as he battles, boozes and rhymes his way to revenge, love, wisdom ... and becoming Norway's first king.

Mark,

It would be better if you were to upload this to our "Book Uploads" forum.

I've read some of it now, and I think the structure is meant to emulate a saga. I don't really think it's works, the storytelling style is too modern. I can't say I liked it much. I don't know if it's a genre, but it read rather like a male equivalent to a romance novel.

Ea's review

Ea:

Thanks for your review. You make some good points. The modern style-elements and "romance novel" approach don't work for you, but hopefully will appeal to others ... And hopefully my next book (which I'm working on today) will please you more!

Mark
