Historical Romance Land of the Saxons, A.D. 964
by Linda Young
Has an eye for the ladies, loves a good fight. Splits his sides
over rude jokes. Won’t ask directions no matter how lost he
is…even in a longship, for the love of Odin! Sound like anyone
you know? Maybe every man you know?
Toste and Vagn Ivarsson are all that and definitely a whole lot
more. These twin brothers are hardly ever separated. Even when they
are, they can still feel each other. They think alike, act alike,
they even say the same things at the same time. But when they watch
each other fall in battle, how will one go on without the other?
Both believe the other is dead and try to go on alone. What they
each find is a woman to finally make them both start thinking of
settling down, even though neither will admit it to themselves.
Even without realizing the other is still alive, they still talk
to each other with their thoughts. While Vagn is alone, Toste is
stuck with Bolthar the Scald. Bolthar and his outrageous sagas keep
Toste entertained and groaning.
What can I say? Once again I laughed my way through the whole book.
Even though there are times that are sad while the brothers are
dealing with the loss of their brother, their sense of humor always
comes shining through. From Bolthar and his sagas to the woman troubles
the brothers have, the fun never stops. Sandra Hill is a genius
the way she writes her Viking books. They are all fun, romantic,
and just a joy to read. This is another reissue of an earlier release.
I love the fact that there is a glossary in the back of the book.
Ms. Hill also tells how to pronounce the twin’s names. I’ll
let you find that out on your own. I highly recommend this book
to anyone who loves to laugh and loves romance. You can’t
go wrong with Sandra Hill.
