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. Their savior was Merrick, a viking from Norway that was both fair and just or as close to that as it was possible.

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 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 suspect this was just one of those....not quit a hit, thing. It was an enjoyable, easy read.

Lord of Raven's Peak, Viking Bk 3, Catherine Coulter, PB-B @ 1994, 1/08. Merrick rescues a small boy in a slave market after the older brother is sold. Then he rescues the older brother, who turns out to be Laren, an older sister. Okay.

I wasn't impressed with the Viking Series.

I tried to get into Vikings and I realized, they do not do much for me. It is Ms. Coulter so the story is very well written. The slave part is what attracted me... hoping for some dirty sexy loving. For back in 1999, it was maybe a bit risque.

I enjoyed the story and all the characters. I couldn't put the book down. It was interesting how the author made all the bad things that happened to the heroine before the start of the book, well most of them.

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.

The old Viking customs and ways was enlightening and encouraged my reading the whole series. I loved them all.

Very good main characters. The man is tough without being macho. And the heroine saves herself.
