4 star review- enthralling stuff * Book for Keeps *
[An] engaging adventure . . . an entertaining and appealing story in its own right * Booktrust *
Greatly reminiscent of the estimable Rosemary Sutcliff and Geoffrey Trease. Wickedly illustrated throughout (with a few very powerful double page spreads), it's a gorgeous modern spin on the historical novel tradition all packaged up with Bradman's pacey, accessible prose and some substantial myth and magic * Did You Ever Stop to Think and Forget to Start Again? *
Whether you are a child or an adult, if you enjoy a thrilling adventure you'll enjoy this book. -- TOSTE * TOSTE *
Packed with action, this exciting story is a fascinating insight into the world of Vikings. * The Week Junior *
[...] a great length for a class read in years 5 or 6 and beyond. [...] This story would be a great accompaniment to a Vikings history unit, allowing teachers to explore both the brutality of Viking life and elements of Norse Mythology. I prefer this text to 'How to Train Your Dragon' as a more realistic portrayal of Viking culture. * Literacy Shed *
"[...] couched in excellent research on the period and brings the Viking world to life in a vivid and dramatic way." * *
Featured in a piece written by Tony Bradman in The School Librarian. * The School Librarian *
