OND ELDR. BREATHE FIRE.
Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield — her brother, fighting with the enemy — the brother she watched die five years ago.
Faced with her brother’s betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.
She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.
I have fallen in love with this book. Such a original story that drew me in. So did the cover of it. Even enjoy the characters in it a lot.
Eelyn is so cool in the book. You really dont want to mess with her and her axe. She would do anything to protect her family.
Fiske I enjoy him in the book also. Trying to show Eelyn their clan is not so bad after all. Can Eelyn trust the man who took her away from home?
With so much clan fighting, family secrets. Will their ever be in peace in the end?
Book is action pack, family betrayal and maybe little romance. For something new in the viking world, then try Sky in the Deep.
