Historical Fiction/Young Adult
OND ELDR. BREATHE FIRE.
Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield — her brother, fighting with the enemy — the brother she watched die five years ago.
Faced with her brother's betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.
She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.
So many many thanks to netgalley, this book brutally ended my reading slump and i love it for that.
|How can I describe this book!? I mean i never read a fantasy book that was finished in one book and i am actually fine with it being one book. Eleyn the girl with fire in her blood and Fiske the hard man with the ever changing heart, i loved reading your journey. Iri the boy who found out that blood doesn’t make family. Gah. I need to watch any and everything about vikings, this story made me want to stand up and sound my own battle cry. The battle was won, not physically but emotionally.|
5 stars and many more.
