Oh, Thorgrim. You'll never make it back to Norway. This latest installment of the tale of ol' Thorgrim Night Wolf has left me with some mixed feelings. I struggled through the first two thirds of this book but the ending was so exceptional that it may have all been with it.We find Thorgrim with what's left of his men after the disaster at Glendalough and he's only got one thing on his mind: DOUBLE REVENGE. Sounds good, right? Maybe.The chapters that included Thorgrim and the Irish warriors who o [...]
Great story and book. Hated for the book to end. Can't wait for the next one. Kudos to Mr. Nelson.
I'm conflicted about this one.On one hand, Nelson's stories are getting formulaic - the Irish can't be trusted! the other Vikings are psychotic! - and his characters are whipsaws - Louis is glad for this chance to escape, oh wait, I mean he hates the heathens! - but at the same time it's an adventure story, not "Moby-Dick." At least now we have an Irishman who is something other than a conniving backstabber and a female character that didn't throw herself at Thorgrim or Harald the moment she saw [...]
I have read and reviewed all the books in this series so far. I have run out of hyperbole. I can only say this, if you ike this kind of thing you will love this. Read this book or start at the beginning, the purchase price is cheap for hours of entertainment in the movie of your mind. You will not regret it.
Hope to hear more of Harold and Night WolfLoved this series and the complexity that ruled Ireland. The characters are well developed and I found myself routing for people on each side! The ease with which people met death at this time is so well portrayed. Oh and I love Starri. What a great character!
Two hundred men dead. One betrayer. One deserter. A lone longship. Guilt gnaws at Thorgrim Night Wolf, for leading his men into the bloody slaughter, and honor demands satisfaction. But revenge must wait until the ten remaining survivors of the battle at Glendalough have repaired themselves and Sea Hammer. The sheltered sandbar is a good spot to do both, even though it is far from a secure place to stay with Irish men-at-arms still hunting them. And what should be done with their two prisonersâ€ [...]
Fascinating look into the pastThis series of books offer you a glimpse into Vikings & their culture arriving in Ireland. The vast distance between the wealth of the Christian monasteries & the brutish life of common Irish people is unimaginable. These riches drew the Vikings repeatedly to Ireland with wide spread, casual violence & rape resulting. Obviously thoroughly researched & well written
I'm getting very fond of these characters. At the end of the first in this series I really didn't think I'd still be enjoying the saga another 4 books down the track and I'm looking forward to the next installment. I particularly enjoy the series because I have spent a little time here and had the very best Guinness ever in Wicklow town (Vik'lo) where this tale is partially set.
This book has received a Discovering Diamonds Review:'Like the tales of old told by an Irish seanachaidh or a Norse skald, Night Wolf lures readers into its web and holds them spellbound until the story ends.'Helen Hollickfounder #DDRevs
This was well doneExcellent story. Well written , great characters and development. It was cool to see all the sides of the story meet up for the final conflict. I recommend reading the whole series, I've enjoyed every book so far and can't wait for the next
Another Good Book by NelsonJames Nelson's maritime fiction is great and now his Viking series has become one of the best available. He created great characters, a good plot, and exciting action. I think he has been historically accurate also.
Night Wolf saga book 5Again an exciting and as far as I know accurate tale of viking life even the Irish elements seem accurate thanks and please write more of these characters
Good Lots of great action and battle scenes well drawn and excellent to follow. I would highly recommend this fast paced boook
Enjoyed the whole seriesGreat read excited for the sixth installment. Mr. Nelson creates a slightly more subtle world than Bernard Cromwell but just as enjoyable.
