    Complex Characters and Fate

    I wasn't sure where this series would go, but I found myself compelled by Adrienne Young's writing and I was glad to be swept up in a new adventure with familiar and new faces. The mythology and lore of the series was explored in greater detail, and a hint of magic was introduced. It led to some surprises and twists, and was definitely a darker instalment of the previous book. That wasn't to say there wasn't plenty of action to go around. These people are Vikings after all. I really enjoyed the characters. Halvard is always welcome and it was interesting to see what he became after so many years and the danger he experienced as a child. Tova was also quite interesting and I sympathized with what she was going through, not belonging anywhere and being used. The time shifts were a little disarming and the plot seemed to drag in the middle a bit, but I was quite compelled by the characters and the places it led. I had a great time reading this and would recommend it to anyone who loves Viking lore, complex and flawed characters, and a dose of drama-filled action!

    No Connection For Me

    Although The Girl The Sea Gave Back can be read as a standalone, I think I would have liked it better had I read Sky In The Deep first. I say this because I had a difficult time becoming acquainted with this world, and some cameos from past characters are presented, not that I understood, though. I absolutely love the cover art. The writing is lovely and smooth, and the story is truly unique. I'm sorry to say I just didn't connect with the world or the characters. It's slow going, and I had to really make myself read this book because I got bored. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy this book like I expected I would. Thanks to NetGalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review.
