To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Jorvik, AD 935 It seems that you can’t fight fate. Einar Unnsson is destined to be a great warrior, despite choosing to be a bard. He has a gift for battle and has managed to defeat the men sent by his father, Thorfinn of Orkney, to kill him. He is saved by the Norse-Irish princess Affreca, who had thought that he was already on his way to raise an army and challenge Thorfinn. But nothing is straightforward (or easy). Affreca has her own quest. She’s seeking the Raven Banner for King Eirik.
Yes, this is the second novel in the series, and I have yet to read ‘Odin’s Game’. While I have bought a copy, and hope to read it soon, I was still able to follow and enjoy ‘The Raven Banner’. Plenty of adventure, and some interesting characters. If you enjoy action novels set in this period, then I can recommend ‘The Raven Banner’.
Note: My thanks to NetGalley and Head of Zeus for providing me with a free electronic copy of this book for review purposes.
Story fine as one of 4. However there are numerous and more mistakes in the text that proof reader should have spotted and corrected. Sometimes makes storyline difficult to follow. And an expensive book. Disappointing. Robtw
