Adrien’s book is an interesting read. I read thru both books, and they kept my interest to the very end. Who isn’t interested in the Vikings? And Vikings are his expertise and passion.
As an educator, Adrien evidently wrote these book with teens in mind. But except for the lack of offensive language and sex scenes, you wouldn’t know they weren’t written for an adult audience. The books are free of offensive language. The only term I found that is inappropriate to children is b-----d.
The reader will find violence on nearly every page, but then, the books are about Vikings.
There are only a couple of named Christians who are portrayed in a favorable light. Most of the other Christians in the book are portrayed as jerks or villains. The Vikings are portrayed the opposite, mostly loyal and true to their beliefs, with a few jerks and villains, but then again, the books are written from the perspective of Vikings.
I downloaded the books to see if they would be appropriate for my granddaughters, ages 12 and 14. I won’t be buying the books for them, but I could see teenage males thoroughly enjoying the books.
