Publisher's Summary

In this grand saga of love, war, and magic set in the tenth century, young Sigrid is destined to be the mother of the king of the Nordic lands that would become Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and England.

A devout believer in the old Nordic gods, Sigrid is visited regularly in her dreams by the goddess Freya, who whispers to her of the future. Though Sigrid is beautiful, rich, arrogant, and matchlessly clever, her uncanny ability to foresee the future and manipulate the present guides her through dangerous politics as a bloody war between Vikings and Christians rages on.

Sigrid's father wants her to marry Erik, a local king, to secure the peace between the Goths and the Swedes. Thinking she is doing Freya's will, she accepts the marriage offer, only to find that her destiny lies not with Erik but with Sweyn, a warrior who dreams of dethroning Harald Bluetooth, the legendary ruler of Denmark. Will Sigrid sacrifice her will for the greatest Viking kingdom of all time, or will she follow her heart at the risk of losing everything?

    "This new series is fantastic!"

    I'm a massive dark or middle ages historical fiction fan & there are a lot of terrible books out there. This is not one of them!!! While all my favorite authors in this field are men, I have to say I am really impressed how Ms Hildebrand brought this awesome story to life!! She didn't shy away for the battle scenes or the raw brutality it was just like if you lived thru it. Fantastic!! Only problem I'm going to lose my mind til the 2nd books release next october☹️️

    "Great story and story"

    This was the first audio book I had listened too. It took a few tries to adapt, but once I started listening, I was hooked. I listen while driving and couldn't wait for the next trip, anywhere really.

    Narration was very clear and had good expression. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the characters and imagining them even more clearly.

    The story has a good storyline and true to its nature in time. One can really understand and feel for any of the characters. Liked it so much that I bought the sequel before I finished the book.

    So...onto Book 2. Hope it will be just as good.

    Story
    "Too self-absorbed"

    This book thought too highly of itself, as did its characters. And so the narrator was also too high and mighty. Don't blame her, perhaps. Shallow story and characters. Difficult to follow who was who, the ancient pagan religion so glorified offered nothing of substance. In the end it all fell flat.

    Story
    "Felt like I was there! Characters were so real."

    Close your eyes and you could feel the damp mud under your feet, smell the burning wood from the campfires and in the lodges.
    Cristina was not afraid to yell out loud and I dig that! she gave each character their own voice and personality so you never had to guess who was speaking. You just wanted the main characters to meet to see what amazing things they would do. This was a great Viking story even without the mystic stuff.

    "very good"

    I was very impressed with how the characters just came alive and how you were brought to care for them and fell like you were gong through the struggles with them!

    "slow start but interesting history throughout"

    I really enjoyed this book. The beginning was slow and hard to understand but once I got through that it was very enjoyable. I like the history aspect of this book even if it was fictional. many names were hard to understand so that made the narration a little awkward.

    Story
    "For Viking and mythology lovers not romance lovers"
    Any additional comments?

    Honestly, I was not into this story for a long time, but I persisted. This is the 4th book in the series, but the first with an English translation so I'm not sure what happened before, but my understanding is that the ones before it aren't needed for this storyline. It reminds me so much of the tv show Vikings. There are time jumps and weird things. It took me awhile to getting into what was really happening. I was slow to catch on, but by the end I was hooked. I do want to read the next installment now. I need to find out what happens to the babies. This is not so much a romance, but more of a Vikings version of Game of Thrones.

    "Loved the narrator's voice for this heroines story."

    The narrator's voice was perfect in every way. I love a story with a strong and intelligent woman. Sigrid's faith and strength helps her maneuver through her male dominated world and the obstacles life puts before her.

    "great story"

    really interesting story to hear about. I like history, and this historical fiction is very well done, especially since it was translated. it still sounded natural and the performance was very good.
