Seidman AUTHOR James Erich review â 104 Is wing Before long Kol discovers something else about himself that is different something else that sets him apart as unmanly Kol has fallen in love with another boyBut the world is changing in ways that threaten those who practice the ancient arts As Kol’s new life takes him across the Norse lands he finds that a new r. This story is very compelling I was hooked from the very first page The book is written from Kol s point of view I thought the author did a good job keeping the overall historical timeline for the Viking era and seamlessly integrated family culture the settings the characters lives on the farms and religion without the reader feeling like they were reading a history book A lot of research seems to have gone into it and it felt authentic I like how the author portrayed the characters including the secondary ones I like Kol s voice but sometimes I felt he was a bit immature At times I wanted him to be a in control of things Also the book dragged a bit for me during Kol s time in Norway it was hard to keep track of all the spirits and other things he was learning during his training I was relieved when that was done and he returned to Iceland The ending while not the usual HEA the MCs still had a happy ending with conditions and constraints of the time period I thought it was a realistic ending for this book Thorbrand still had to fulfill his duties as a Chieftain and the MCs were aware of the dangers they faced if others outside of their circle knew about their relationship

Seidman AUTHOR James Erich review â 104 Eligion is sweeping through them and King Olaf Tryggvason is hunting down and executing sorcerers When a decades old feud forces Thorbrand to choose between Kol and his duty to his kinsman Kol finds himself cast adrift with only the cryptic messages of an ancient goddess to guide him to his destiny and possibly to his deat. This falls as a middle of the road story for me I liked it but the pace was a little slow for my taste And while I loved all of the historical elements they were a a little teach y at times at didn t feel as well integrated into the story as I would have liked They often took me out of the flow of the story and were repeated numerous times so they began to feel repetitive Overall I d give this 35 starsOn the other side I really did enjoy Kol His youth and his confusion and growth were well balanced in this story I felt like I grew with him as he figured out how to be a man in a world that was going through some very dramatic changes His way of life was being changed from the outside and his powers made him into the target of a lot of those changes The new regime in religion wanting to wipe out the old isn t a new theme but would have been a very dangerous time to live in Christianity never tolerated the remainder of the old religions I liked the straight forward presentation of Christianities inroads into the Viking culture while still presenting their gods as real and an active part of their world I enjoyed my read and this does do a good job of balancing in the MM elements of the romance in this story It s fitting for a YA story the time period s beliefs are prevalent and an obstacle to overcome but yet not overpowering for the story The final view spoilerbattle at the end of the story hide spoiler

Seidman AUTHOR James Erich review â 104 In Viking Age Iceland where boys are expected to grow into strong farmers and skilled warriors there is little place for a sickly twelve year old boy like Kol until he catches the eye of a seið woman a sorceress and becomes her apprentice Kol travels to the sorceress’s home where her grandson Thorbrand takes Kol under h. One of the biggest strengths of this young adult historicalparanormal story is the authenticity of the unusual setting the life of a gay boy growing to manhood in Viking Iceland Kol is gifted with magical abilities which lead to his apprenticeship to a local sei woman a sorceress This gets him away from the rough life on his father s farm and brings him into the household of a boy he is becoming attracted to Thorbrand However being gay is not accepted especially for a boy like Thorbrand who will become a Chief And times are changing as the religion of the White Christ with its hatred of sorcery is moving into that part of the world Becoming a sorcerer is no longer a safe path to an honored professionThis book kept me intrigued and turning the pages I was caught up in the life of Kol his adventures in the community of sorcerers and his hidden romance with a boy whose status was going to make it difficult to give them a happy ending There is adventure here and loss and magic that is well portrayed and integrated into the religion and setting Occasionally the wonderful details of place and time while creating atmosphere also slowed the story just a bit and Kol s reserve made some of the gut wrenching things he went through less emotional but I enjoyed this Overall Seidman is well written unusual and well worth the read
