Intriguing and enthralling

When I first picked up this book, I marvelled at the different stle of writing - it is told as an old Norse saga should be. After a while, the adventrues of Sigtrygg in his efforts to secure his rights had me completely enthralled. Beneath the research and the meticulous attention to detail there is still the old fashioned "good guys against bad guys" story that we all know and love.

In addition there is the sweep of drama, the dark forrest, the adventures on the high seas, beautiful women, clashing swords and all manner of excitement. It is a great read, and it also has a most satisfying ending.

Well done Stuart, but what next?

I just stumbled across this. Another Man's Land is the working title for my new one which has nothing whatever to do with vikings this time out. American Indians still play a role, however, in this fact-based novel recalling the shabby treatment accorded a small group of people in mid-19th century pre-Civil War America -- and the long overlooked Western hero who led them and will now hopefully take his place, at last, in the pantheon of trail blazing American pioneers. Thanks for the kind review of my first novel, The King of Vinland's Saga, by the way. SWM
