Download Ó Ice Land 108 Summary ¸ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Betsy Tobin Said to possess the power to alter the course of history But even as Freya travels deep into the mountains of Iceland the country is on the brink of war The new world order of Christianity is threatening the old ways of Iceland's people and tangled amidst it all are two star crossed lovers. Although I am not as steeped in Norse mythology as some I know enough about it to understand and admire what Betsy Tobin was trying to do with this book and I think she succeeded beautifully She pulled a tale from the 14th c Saga of Olaf Tryggvason added her own elements and created a wonderful story that I found utterly captivating This is far fantasy than historical fiction nevertheless she has grounded her tale in the very real setting of early medieval Iceland Her descriptions of the landscape are wondrous and her portrayal of the lives of the early settlers of Iceland ring true She has uite successfully brought the Norse gods and one particular goddess down to earth I loved it

Download Ó Ice Land 108 Summary ¸ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Betsy Tobin A beautiful epic of love longing redemption and enchantment in the tradition of Marion Zimmer Bradley's The Mists of Avalon Iceland AD 1000 Freya knows that her people are doomed Warned by the Fates of an impending disaster she must embark on a journey to find a magnificent gold necklace one. Ice Land is a somewhat fanciful take on the legends of the Old Norse Gods set in the year 1000 It is told through the point of view of several characters in alternating chapters from Freya who can don her feathers and fly like a bird orphaned Fulla who does not wish to marry the man her grandfather has chosen Vili son of the sworn enemy of Fulla s family who can t stay away from Fulla the half dwarf Dvalin who dwells inside the mountain with his half brothers as well as the Norns who foreshadow the building turmoil within the great mountain Hekla The actions of the various characters begin to intertwine and ultimately lead them to their ultimate fate at the hands of the angry volcano Hekla I m really not inclined to go further into the plot line the other reviewers have recapped the story well enough and there s plenty of additional info on the legends at Wik and other sites It did sound promising enough for a light fantasy but unfortunately it ultimately failed in the final execution particularly the alternating point of views I never connected with any of the characters the writing flat and lifeless as were the characters and due to my ignorance of the Norse legends I really didn t grasp what was going on until well after page 200 not a good thing for a 370 page book The only part I really did like was inside the mountain with the dwarfs had to flashback on a favorite book from my childhood Since this book is still being prepared for final publication I would reuest the editors put in a brief cast of characters or summary of the people in these legends and not presume that the reader knows them ahead of time In the end it s a very light piece of fluff that kept me entertained for 30 40 minutes a day whilst doing the cardio but I certainly had no problem putting it down and forgetting it once I was done The Gnome King of Oz
