The most erotic book I have ever read!

Viking Thunder is the most erotic book I have ever read and when I listened to it on Audible it was even better! The narrator does an excellent job presenting the intense and dark tale of Viking raids and fierce warriors. Elswyth is half Viking due to a previous raid by the Vikings and she knows that she is different than the other girls. Not only does she look different but she is not content with a life of female pursuits. She is visited in her dreams by Viking spirits, so when the Vikings raid the village again, she is drawn to their handsome warrior. Erik unleashes longings and lust in Elswyth that her weak husband never could. I don't want to give away too much, but the story if earthy and primal and resonates in your blood. It feels so real that you are sucked into the era and rough ways of the raiders. I hope that Emmanuelle writes a sequel soon!

She was looking for an escape from her life.

The British coastal townships had endured many Viking invasions, leaving women raped and men slaughtered. This recounting of one such invasion, includes the attitude of one of the women, who was a result of a raid years earlier, and whose Nordic features had always segregated her from the other woman.
I enjoyed the audio rendition of this book, which greatly enhanced my appreciation of this story.

Very Old School Pillage - Great but beware

This story has a great performer, and it pulls you in. As a person who loves historical fiction, this was completely up my alley. However, this is a listener beware. It is a story about Viking raping and pillaging a town and the after effects of it.

On the other hand, this story was super interesting. The characters were dynamic and interesting, the storyline seems very real to me, and the whole thing just pulls you in and suddenly you have listened to the whole story without realizing its been 90 minutes! I would definitely suggest this audiobook to anyone who loves history and a sexy story!

Not a romance novel!!

First of all this is in only the h's point of view, you get nothing from the H. This story talks about rape as though they are discussing what they ate for breakfast! There is no relationship building between the H & h, but that doesn't seem to be that big a deal since when she decides to go with him he says he will give his children his name and inheritance and that he has bedded many women and will bed many more!! WTF?? Thankfully this was short because that's the only reason I finished it. I plan to return this and see no reason to continue the series.

I really like this audio

My second (short) read/listen from author Emmanuelle de Maupassant, although I own a number of her works it was the audio that enticed me to read this one since I own both the Kindle and the Audible editions. As much as I don't care for short stories, I really liked this one. It takes something special to write a short story and in this, my second read from this author it all comes together. The only way it could be better would be to expand to a longer story and since it serves as an intro to a series it works. The accent of the narrator adds to the listening enjoyment.

Dark and Steamy, just the way I like it.

This isn't a long audiobook, and it is incredibly easy to get involved in the story, thanks to the narrator. I normally wouldn't grab Viking books. In fact, until a group of authors put together Viking stories (and they happened to be authors I liked), I never paid much attention to them.

Emmanuelle writes steam, plain and simple. The steam rises from the situations the characters find themselves in as well as the characters themselves. I've read a few other reviews that found fault with certain phrasing during the steamy scenes, or they didn't care for the public sex. I would not doubt for a second that the rapes bothered some, but I always remind myself that in fiction, anything can and does happen. All that said, I liked this book. It was hot, steamy, and not so far over the top that I couldn't relate to the characters. I couldn't help but both like and have sympathy for Elswyth. Here was a woman whose husband used her for a shield and very easily gave her away to the Vikings in return for his life. Brave lot, that one (not). Then there was the Viking Eirik. I think part of the problem I had with the Vikings, until I remembered something about Elswyth from the beginning of the book, was that Eirik just decided to take her. But remembering what was written about her beginnings, and then I realized that Elswyth didn't look foreign to him.

This book is something you take an hour out of our day to listen to. It moves at a steady pace with very few breaks in the story. There was a decent balance between the narrative and verbiage, so I didn't get bogged down listening to lengthy descriptions. I rated the ebook as four stars, but I'm giving this five. This presented better in audio, which rarely happens with me. If I read Vikings, I would prefer they were written by Emmanuelle de Maupassant and her friends.

A Viking rape romance

Viking Thunder is a short story about a brave girl whose village is terrorized by Viking invaders, but the story can’t get past its sexually violent core. This poor girl gets repeatedly raped by multiple men in the course of this short story. How can anyone fall in love with a man who repeatedly rapes her and other women around her?

Reader beware. Contains multiple graphic rape scenes.

The narrator is actually very good.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Poor excuse for a story. Do not waste your money

Very short audiobook. Not worth the price. Poor storyline and character development. This was a waste of a good credit.

Wonderfully Dark!

Viking Thunder is a brilliantly written dark and sensual story, that'll leave you with wanting more. There are elements in the story that are quite violent and intense but expected from the period. Emma Parry did an exceptional job with the narration, particularly the harsher scenes. I'm wholly impressed by her performance.
I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Who is my true people?

This audiobook was exciting, full of Norse folklore, and had a smattering of romance. Elswyth was different from other girls in many ways, in her appearance, her tomboyish ways, and she was disliked because of this difference. Arik, the head Norseman, arrives full of strength, lust, and truth defeating the villager's men and awakening emotions Elswyth never felt before. I can't wait to listen to Viking Wolf to continue Elswyth's and Arik's adventure.

Viking Thunder

It was very difficult to listen to this book. This book called Viking Thunder. The Viking’s have raided a small village. They have pillaged and robbed and injured, killed and raped . Elswyth’s husband was murdered by this band of warriors. But she did not grieve him as she had no love for him. Eirik was the leader of this gang. He was big and strong and very handsome. The more you listen the more you want to. You get involved with the characters.

Viking Thunder

Elswyth never feels as though she has fit in with her clan. When the Vikings invade her village she realizes she is part Viking. Her mother was raped and left by a Viking. And these Vikings are no different they have killed her husband and are raping the women. She stands up to them and ends up catching the attention of a special man. The narration is nice.

Vikings

I enjoyed this story, but wish it was a little more developed and longer. I wanted more in the end the story was to short. Emma Parry did a wonderful job narrating made this book even better.

Almost Animalistic

Very well written and detailed. I thought it was very representative of the Vikings and how they would conquer and plunder villages. However, this is a snippet of the aftermath and celebration. This author turned up the heat in this short listen as Erik claims Elyswyth as his own and she surrenders to him. Quick listen that is super hot, but it ends abruptly and leaves us wanting more.

The narration was great. I enjoyed listening to the narrators voice and I feel like her accent added a feeling of authenticity to the time and setting of this short story.
