"Wilson’s dramatic prose brings to life the harsh conditions of life along the wintry, rocky seashore, Rune’s indomitable spirit and Asa’s fierce determination. Classic storytelling."--Kirkus Reviews
"Although the story takes place over just a few days, Asa matures tremendously, becoming someone capable of sacrificing greatly for the good of her people. Outside of some references to Odin and draugrs, not much places the story as explicitly “Viking,” but the strength of the storytelling should keep readers rapt through the brutal but satisfying conclusion."--Publishers Weekly
