Much of what I loved about The Half-Drowned King is repeated in this sequel, only much more enhanced. I've always loved Svanhild's character, but she has grown even more here. Her ambitions are much appreciated because if there is one good thing that comes from history, it is that women are determined not to be walked over. While Ragnvald is fighting his own battles concerning Harald, Svanhild is fighting an even bigger battle. It's no spoiler that she is a mother now, but she wants more for them. Solvi is a Viking to his core, and he and Svanhild butt heads more often than not. While Viking men are hard, Svanhild proves that women can be just as fierce.

I absolutely love how much more of this Viking-era that Hartsuyker reimagined. It is filled with politics and war, which is an exhilarating combination when reading historical fiction. If you appreciate thorough research - which is evident in this Viking saga - then I highly recommend this trilogy. I can't wait for the final book!
