Yes a very good start!

I'm through chapter 5 now, (view spoiler)


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7781 comments I love the pseudo-norse / Viking style places and names. I wish there were a map so I could see it all, there's so many places mentioned I'm struggling to picture it all! I bet a map of this world would be gorgeous!


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4503 comments Up to chapter five too (view spoiler)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4503 comments Ooh yes I think a map would be amazing!

Hahaha oh yes!! Runa. Little details like that take me right out of stories, don't know about you!


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4503 comments 11 chapters in (view spoiler)

I'm so glad to hear you say that, I was worried I was just being picky! :( I'm kinda disappointed by the writing! It is lazy and convenient. I feel let down. :(


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7781 comments It feels like middle grade instead of YA, like only little children would buy this story.


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7781 comments I finished! (view spoiler)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4503 comments I agree, I was also thinking it was feeling MG// the younger side of YA. It started out so well and had such promise so I'm really disappointed.

We win some we lose some! :(
It's not awful, just not as good as we hoped.

Yeah I agree with all of this, it's an enjoyable little read but it has so much potential it's not living up to.

I've just finished chapter 19 (view spoiler)

Totally! It was so rushed. Could have done with a lot more development.

Finished! (view spoiler)

Yeah definitely recommend to a younger reader moreso. Oh well, we tried!!

Oh you've unhidden my spoiler by the way, best edit just in case anyone else who wants to read it gets spoiled. :)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4503 comments Thanks will do!


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4503 comments And I didn't hate it, it wasn't terrible. I've just read so many genuine amazing books that this couldn't compare.


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7781 comments Yeah exactly!!
