    This is one of the first books I remember buying, I was younger than ten and it was a library sale, and incredibly magical place in what seemed like a giant hall and books everywhere Reading it again it s enjoyable enough, and it s good historical fiction for a kid There s lots of war and blood and bad things happen but nothing too gory or disturbing and that s a half truth I don t like so much maybe and never anything like rape It certainly evokes a sense of the time and the country, with This is one of the first books I remember buying, I was younger than ten and it was a library sale, and incredibly magical place in what seemed like a giant hall and books everywhere Reading it again it s enjoyable enough, and it s good historical fiction for a kid There s lots of war and blood and bad things happen but ...

    I finished Blood Feud in one big rush whilst in a waiting room and discovered that my holding back tears in public noise is weird.This book is short, and written for children, and marketed as a sort of bromance though I don t think the term had been coined when it was written , but in actual fact it is a beautiful love story for all ages The protagonist is Jestyn Englishman, and his best friend love of his life, Thormod Sitricson, a Viking Now, I know there will be people r I finished Blood Feud in one big rush whilst in a waiting room and discovered that my holding back tears in public noise is weird.This book is short, and written for children, and marketed as a sort of bromance though I don t think the term had been coined when it was written , but in actual fact it is a beautiful love story for all ages The protagonist is Jestyn Englishman, and his best friend love of his life, Thormod Sitricson, a Viking Now, I know there will be people rolling their eyes at that, and grumbling under their breath about the misappropriation of nautical...

    I haven t read Sutcliff in a long time and I kinda forgot her style Well, this book was perfect to reacquaint me with her writing It was evocative and dark at times, without ever being really hopeless I liked her descriptions, as usual It s strange, because most of her books are set in Britain In this one, the characters go from England to the northern lands, to Kiev, Thrace and Constantinople, so I would have thought it was a bit outside Sutcliff s comfort zone Yet each place is brilliant I haven t read Sutcliff in a long time and I kinda forgot her style Well, this book was perfect to reacquaint me with her writing It was evocative and dark at times, without ever being really hopeless I liked her descriptions, as usual It s strange, because most of her books are set in Britain In this one, the characters go from England to the northern lands, to Kiev, Thrace and Constantinople, so I would have thought it was a bit outside Sutcliff s comfort zone Yet each place is brilliantly described, so much so that you ...

    I wasn t expecting to like this one as much as I did after all, it isn t about Romans, and clearly I like the ones about Romans best but it is, surprisingly, really really good, and I will happily recommend it to anyone who wants a YA book about vikings.It s the tale of Jestyn Englishman, a shepherd who ends up sold as a slave in Dublin to Thormod Sitricson they become friends, they fight at each other s side, and Jestyn becomes caught up in the blood feud for Thormod s father I wasn t expecting to like this one as much as I did after all, it isn t about Romans, and clearly I like the ones about Romans best but it is, surprisingly, really really good, and I will happily recommend it to anyone who wants a YA book about vikings.It s the tale of Jestyn Englishman, a shepherd who ends up sold as a slave in Dublin to Thormod Sitricson they become friends, they fight at each other s side, and Jestyn becomes caught up in the blood feud for Thormod s father, a quest that takes them to Kiev and Constantinople Yep, it s a story about the Varangian Guard When you think vikings this is probably not the viking story you are expecting The characters are nicely drawn, and Jestyn in particular makes a gre...
