    2. You MUST start the series with this book Okay, each can stand alone but it will make MUCH sense if you start here The time period is intriguing and the characters memorable Great read Side point worth mentioning This series is clean with no profanity.Comment


    3. Marti Talbot is quite a prolific writer She has written lots of short stories and novels set in Scotland as part of the Highlander Series The first five books of the series is a collection of 20 short stories The Viking, in a way, is a sort of prequel that sets the foundation of how the Clan MacGregagor came into existence I have not read the short stories, but I am glad that I started off with The Viking.Stefan is a Viking who sets out with his father to Scotland, not to raid which is the usual [...]


    4. I was taking a risk on this book because it was free on and by an author I had never heard of What a delight it turned out to be I enjoyed that it wasn t a traditional romance story, but the story of an entire community Yes, The Viking is one person in particular, but the book is from several people s points of view and really is quite well written I was delighted to find it and just downloaded the sequel Go read it, people It was great


    5. Overall this book was a very enjoyable read The main character Stefen has a good narrative and the people he comes in contact with are three dimensional characters The plot remains interesting throughout the entire book and the ending wraps things up nicely Some of the relationships develop out of sight of the reader, but I don t find that annoying in this case There is one major negative aspect of the book the writing style was a little juvenile The main reason I say this is because the same vo [...]


    6. Stefan Rossetti is fourteen and going on his first Viking ship with his father, Doran His father is fulfilling a promise to his mother that he will live in her homeland of Scotland and not become a Viking that goes to sea for long periods of time On the voyage, father and son get to know one another and Toran tells his son of his mother, Sheena, and gives her a medallion from her mother When they land in Scotland close to his mother s home they are attacked and his father dies, leaving Stefan on [...]


    7. At last, the day has come, Stefan has finally been allowed to board his father s Viking longship and go on his first raid What he didn t count on was being left behind in Scotland.Kannak is thirteen and is alone with her mother as her father has abandoned them She has decided that the only way for them to survive is to marry, so they will have someone to help work the land.Then she meets Stefan and life will never be the same again This young adult book is one that had me hooked from the beginni [...]


    8. An interesting conceptI expected out of Talbott s writing, especially a book that seems to promise Viking adventures, but the story is predominately about the Scottish In my opinion, the plot rambled and didn t build tension until the very end of the book I only kept reading because it s a point of pride to finish most books that I read I do applaud this different type of perspective that Talbott strives for, and I really enjoyed the feisty characters.This book is for you if you enjoy stories o [...]


    9. A fantastic entry point into the realm of historical fiction.I thought for a while that this tale seemed a little hurried but the I read the I enjoyed It s a perfect entry into historical fiction be it YA or accomplished readers Easily read, never a dull moment and solidly written from start to finish.


    10. This book is the first in a long series of books about the MacGreagor Clan Although they can be read independently, it is probably better to read this first book which sets the historic background and tone for all the others.TheViking,picTalbott introduces the reader to fourteen year old Stefan Rosetti who is embarking on his first voyage as a Viking His father Donor commands his ship Sja Vinna which is headed for the shores of Scotland but Stefan is unaware that his father has plans for both of [...]


    11. While this book had potential to be a really good book, it just fell flat The storyline was entertaining and sweet but I just didn t feel totally connected to the characters it was the classic case of show, not tell and I didn t feel like I was shown their emotions It was still a free book on iBooks and kept my interest which is why I gave it 2.5 3 stars.Stefan, a 13 year old boy, is finally taken with his Viking father on one of his journeys into Scotland The trip together becomes Stefan s only [...]


    12. I picked this book because it was free on my iPhone I was surprised at the content It wasn t what I expected from a book called The Viking The plot was good, the characters were believable I m not an expert on Viking times, but it seemed to do very well from a historical standpoint I loved that it was clean The only problem I had was with the dialogue The author uses the dialect of the people when they speak, which is good, but after a while it gets rather tiring to read.All in all, The Viking i [...]


    13. BEWARE MILD TEMPERED VIKINGS WITH ITALIAN LAST NAMES AND SCOTTISH ACCENTS AHEAD.Book Rating PGLanguage GViolence PG A man is whipped, the Vikings invade Scotland, whatever Not much blood Sex PG Light on the romance, but there are a lot of allusions to different men bedding different women There are references to rape as well as a sentence in the very beginning which says something along the lines of It takes a man only a few minutes to pleasure himself Drug Alcohol Use Abuse G I didn t hate this [...]


    14. I enjoy historical fiction Normally it pulls me in right from the start Unfortunately, this one had me reading the same paragraph over and over until I just had to put the book down I may or may not pick this one up in the future If I do, it s because I ll have no books left to choose from.


    15. I just couldn t get past the first few pages Viking s talking like their Scots With brogue accents Just didn t mesh with me so I moved on.


    16. So if you want to read about Vikings that speak in a Scottish accent, have tridents and do not behave in any way like Vikings, read this book Utter garbage.


    17. The Viking is an interesting book in that it feel very like a very solid story but has poor not terrible writing The plot weaves its way through in a logical, but not entirely predictable way, allowing for its protagonist Stefan to have a number of hardships before finally reaching his goals.However, the book lacks a certain panache and sense of style We are often told how lush the environments are, and are told how our characters are feeling but rarely do we dive into that world and experience [...]


    18. An OK book.The book is about a Viking born to a Viking father and a Scottish mother who had been forcibly taken by the Viking during one of the conquests As per the dead wife s wishes, the viking brings the boy to Scotland and leaves him there.The boy gets a hiding place with one of the families there and then goes through a series of adventure and also ends up finding love.A decent read.


    19. This was a free book and reading the reviews I had higher expectations than maybe I should have had.This is of a farm boy girl romance than a book on Vikings With it being free has raised the score on a lot peoples reviews Not my cup of tea However if you want an easy read and a view into the village life of medieval Scotland then give this a read.


    20. Good characters Solid storyline.Intrigue and some adventure A simple slice of life in ancient Scotland, set so many years ago that the Vikings were still regular marauder s Not as much about Vikings as I would have liked Many small parts of the story I liked such as the sea monsters whales maybe and the hidden castle The birth of a scottish clan was great.


    21. So if you don t worry about Viking knowledge, ignore the accents and just go with it you ll find a very sweet, very clean, ya story Stefan carries this book, he s written as being a very decent young man without any flaws His adopted mom Jirvel also helps carry the story The downside is the romance, Kannak is very flat and frankly the story could have stood without being a love story.


    22. I ve always had interest in Vikings, unfortunately this isn t so much a Viking story but a Scot story Hell not even a Scot story But no mind, it s still a good story A story of love, finding oneself, and choosing family I m curious to see what develops with the newly formed Macgregor clan.


    23. A good story but there were either inconsistencies in the timeline or I just got confused I m thinking the former since it wasn t a confusing story So, docking for the timeline inconsistencies The story was slow at first but eventually picked up and I finished it Glad I did.


    24. I did enjoy this book I am a Scot who lives abroad and I felt comfortable with this book It is not a true romance I hate those but depicts village life of the time I will look for books in this series.


    25. Misleading titleThe title of this book is very misleading The book has nothing to do with Vikings except the main male character was a Viking After the first few pages it had nothing to do with Vikings Not what I expected from the title.


    26. A Book Worth ReadingI read this book in a day I have friends from Scotland My mother came from France,but it was Scotland that always intrigued me This is such a great story Thank you


    27. Not my normal kind of read Cute story, great characters Some formatting issue s with the e version from Nook A few pages out of order My favorite character is Jirvel, stubborn to the core, with good reason I actually feel bad for the poor men who pine for her.


    28. Loved it.Mixed with history and romance I always look at the women and how they survived in an oppressive culturehe depthness was not deep in history but enough to keep me reading to the end Anyone who likes history and romance will like this.


    29. I love this time period Jude Devereaux is my favorite for this type of genre and I was hoping that this book we be similar but different This book was very average and predictable I read The Black Lyon once every year and never tire of it Sadly, I won t be revisiting this one.
