When I read the back of this book I thought it looked like something I would want to read. I read the first chapter and didn’t think I liked it that much, and then the farther I went into it, the more it grew on me. I loved how Daniel and Freya met the Knights,( I imagined those guys to look like vikings with broad shoulders and really long beards.) When they described the thing that Daniel killed, it had me a little creeped out because my imagination went wild trying to think of something like that. One of my favorite quotes from the book is when Swiogar and Ecgbryt were asking them questions about what was happening in the world these days and Freya said “Not really, but were things any better in their time?” Swiogar replys, “Not really. But that only serves to prove what none from my time wanted to admit to themselves-that men and women of any type , of any nation, of any advantage, at any time, will always war with, steal from, and take advantage of each other no matter what is done to try to help them improve their lives.No matter what the advantages-education, riches, comfort-men will still tend towards evil.” That is still true today. Men have almost anything they could want at their fingertips and still we tend to fight over the smallest and stupidest things.
I loved reading this book, and Ross Lawhead, just like his father, is a fantastic writer and I am so glad I was able to read this book.
