REVIEWS: If you enjoy historical fiction (including anything by Phillipa Gregory or Outlander author Diana Gabaldon), you'll love Viking! Can't wait to read more.
Great book, like Follett's Churches in his Century series. Ritter offers a fresh perspective of Viking culture with plenty of interesting characters.
Absolutely riveting. The author weaves a carefully crafted, historically accurate tale with such skill that you are surprised by the twists and turns, even if you're familiar with the history. Her characters are raw, highly detailed, and believable and the story recreates the world of Nordic explorers so accurately that you can just about feel the icy wind on your face. Can't wait for the next volume!
The book is surprising throughout. Just when you think you know where its going, a detour takes you in another direction. Ritter does a good job in keeping the pace going. Characters are well developed, mystery lurks in corners and only at the end does everything fall into place.
The Green Land was a thoroughly engaging book, from beginning to end. I read the first half until 3:30 a.m. and the only reason I stopped was because I was dead tired! On the second reading I finished the book in another four hours of enchantment! Ritter's writing is powerful and compelling from beginning to end.
The sheer daring of the voyages of the Vikings is incredible and well portrayed.
Wow!!!! I was hooked! Couldn't put it down and read it in two days!!!! This book grabbed me from the start, held me in the middle and gave me peace in the end. Wow, wow, wow!!!!!!! Intriguing and smart!
It's been a long time since I read a book that so captured my attention and kept me interested until the end.
Reminded me of Piers Anthony's Geodyssey series. Ritter has reached into her imagination and brought forth an engaging and entertaining volume, complete with mysterious secrets and a unique perspective of Norse legends. I can't wait to read her next creation!
Very hard to put this book down! It pulls you in immediately! My husband picked it up while I was sleeping and he was hooked! We can't wait for Ritter's next novel.
I LOVED THIS BOOK! Thank you for writing a superb story that keeps you turning the pages. I was practically breathless by the end!
