Intriguing Viking Tale with a heroine who is a Skald, a teller of stories

This is the third in Coulter’s Viking series (see list below) and the second in her Viking trilogy. As with the others, it’s a good one. And, it’s rather unique. The heroine is a skald (a storyteller), so there are stories within the story and very cleverly done, too. I admire Coulter’s ability to do that so smoothly. She gives us a feeling for how important storytelling was to the Viking culture while weaving it into an in

After posting the list of Viking romances to the ERT group I discovered I had Catherine Coulter's Lord of Raven's Peak in the TBR pile and decided to read it.

It was not as bad as I thought it be, I must say Merrick was quite a civilized and non violent viking which surprised me. I thought the story could use more depth and somethings we a bit odd but in general it was entertaining and a bit surprising. As to the story Merrick, a viking, is in Kiev to buy slaves when he sees a little boy of six

This got boring about half-way through so I don't even want to finish it.

The future seemed bleak to Laren and her brother Taby. Until one day their savior came and wisked them away from the tortures of slave life.

When Merrick sees the pain and hatred in their eyes he just wants it to stop. He takes c ...more

Coulter is an excellent writer, so her stories are enjoyable. This was the final story in the trilogy for me....read out of order. And for some reason, the story just didn't grab me. I couldn't get into the charachters. I did enjoy the other two books...so suspect this was just one of those....not quit a hit, thing. It was an enjoyable, easy read.

This was one of my first romance novels that I've received and read. Thus, it holds a special place in my heart. I have fond memories of this book, and won't part with it.

Some interesting premise stuff, some character (mostly potential), lots of awkward exposition, some annoying stupidity.
Luckngrace
The old Viking customs and ways was enlightening and encouraged my reading the whole series. I loved them all.
Sue
Very good main characters. The man is tough without being macho. And the heroine saves herself.
Lia Rock lantz
Loved this story. And, there's that Rorik again! I enjoyed this book for an afternoon.
