Six years after The Half-Drowned King, Ragnvald Eysteinsson is now king of Sogn, but fighting battles for King Harald keeps him away from home, as he confronts treachery and navigates a political landscape that grows more dangerous the higher he rises. Ragnvald's sister Svanhild has found the freedom and adventure she craves at the side of the rebel explorer Solvi Hunthiofsson, though not without a cost. She longs for a home where her quiet son can grow strong, and a place where she can put down roots, even as Solvi's ambition draws him back to Norway's battles again and keeps her divided from her brother. As a growing rebellion unites King Harald's enemies, Ragnvald suspects that some Norse nobles are not loyal to Harald's dream of a unified Norway. He sets a plan in motion to defeat all of his enemies, and bring his sister back to his side, while Svanhild finds herself with no easy decisions, and no choices that will leave her truly free. Their actions will hold irrevocable repercussions for the fates of those they love and for Norway itself.

Golden Wolf Trilogy - #2

Feb 24, 2020

Great continuation from Book 1 in this trilogy. Historical information is incorporated into the story about this culture. some of the characters are historical and true, as is some of the story lines. If you enjoy history and are curious about the Viking society and culture, this is a great book.
I'm already reading the 3rd book.

I found this book incredibly hard to read. From a story perspective it was fine (interesting plot, developed characters, the description was detailed, realized story universe), but the writing was really slow. The writing was dense and there was a description of every little thing. I'm all for description when it adds to the story, but the amount of description distracted from the story itself. I found myself thinking about other things while I was reading it and I could only read a few pages at a time. If you have the time and patience, go for it - I did not (3/5).
