If you’re looking for a good Viking story, this isn’t it. Not even close.
The world is as thin as the piece of paper, the main character is incredibly plain. And most importantly, nothing of importance happens at all. It is just constant mentions of Iri who either betrayed them or not, her constant loyalty to her clan. And last but not least a bunch of characters whom I can’t tell the difference from.
The plot was nowhere, it felt as though the author had no idea where she wanted to take the story at all. There was no vision and no clue as to where it wanted to go to say the least.
As for the voice, it was just boring. There was no life to it, and no personality at all. Which is why I even have problems recalling who is the main character’s name.
Honestly, if you do want a good Viking story read Vinland Saga, the manga. It will be much easier and a lot more of an emotional journey than this ever was in one chapter.
