Superb Last in the Viking Series… A Great Adventure!

Set in the 10th century in Norway, Ireland and England, this is the story of Chessa, the daughter of the Irish King. She is kidnapped by Ragnor of York, heir to the Danelaw, who is also a self-possessed dolt and has been told to marry the girl who loathes him.

Chessa has a champion, one Cleve, a Scot who was forced to become a slave and is now a diplomat, who sets out to rescue her. He needs her back since he's negotiated her marriage to William

I love this historical Viking romance. I've read it before and I'll read it again. It contains characters from the previous books: The Lord of Hawkfell Island and The Lord of Raven's Peak. Chessa and Cleve are great characters. Chessa pursues Cleve who's determined to marry her to someone else. Chessa is not one to do other's biddings and she pursues Cleve until he has no choice but to marry her. Lots of twists and turns and humour abound in this book. I loved all three books. This one made me ...more

Catherine Coulter's book, Lord of Falcon Ridge is well written. It is in her Viking Series and offers a tale of fantasy mixed with reality. Her writing style drags you in and allows you to absorb her books in a short amount of time. I look forward to reading another book of this series.

Lord of Falcon Ridge, is quite an entertaining romance novel with a healthy dash of intrigue and plotting. Catherine Coulter spins a great tale in this last book of her trilogy.

Lots of talking. Ragnor is supposed to be funny but I found him very annoying. Repetitive talk about how women are nothing and should be meek and submissive. I wasn't concerned that it was pushing this belief because the women are anything but meek and submissive, women's lib in the Viking era. I'm just annoyed at how repetitive it was.

I didn't care for any of the characters and there are lots. It was hard to keep track of them and I didn't like how they kept switching from one setting to

I liked this best out of the series. I really wish there was a 5th book because I'd like to know what happens with some of the characters and I know their stories would make another great book, oh well, maybe Catherine will read my review and get an idea :)

Meh - a bit too much dribble for my taste. Of course, I didn't start with the first book in the series but the tale seemed to stand on its own. Just too much of "helpless females swooning over men." I did enjoy reading about Loch Ness since I have been there and I could picture it in my head!

This brought in some characters from this series. It deals with magicians, court intrigue, kidnappings, and true love.

Had a hard time getting into this book. The first three were good but this one seemed less serious in the dialogue and alittle bit too goofy but I would still recommend the books

Cleve of Lord of Raven Peak first meets Chessa of Lord if Hawkfell Island when she is the princess of Ireland when he negotiates the wedding between Chessa and Prince William of Normandy, when Chessa is kidnapped by Rangor of York where he keeps her a prisoner on Hawkfell Island. Cleve sets out to rescue her but he wasn't ready for what Chessa has in mind.

I like Coulter's style, she is an excellent writter, but this was the end of the trilegy...lost the ump of the previous ones. Had to struggle in places to get thru it. More a finsih the series....than enjoy it. It's OK for a rainy or snowy afternoon...with nothing els.

It has been ten years since I have read this final copy of the Viking series. The adventures of Cleve and Chessa are a delight. Full of adventure, a wide variety of characters, and that bit of humor that makes it a winner.

Really, do I need to say more than this is a Viking story? I went through a phase of wanting to read raping, pillaging and arrogant warrior men. So, I got the arrogant warrior man.

Enjoyed this one.. As usual I read the last book in the series 1st. Now I have to find the others.. Ms. Coulter really keeps things moving and you don't want to put the books down..
