One hell of a good time.  David Tarantino 4/16/2013

A Great Yarn: This three book series does an excellent job of laying out the movement of people from Norway to Greenland to North America. The hero is infectious
  CJ 1/16/2013

Kick arse historical epic.  Easily sits alongside Bernard Cornwell or Conn Iggulden.
  JD 10/30/2012

Thoroughly recommend this book to all readers now, before the rest of the world realises and he starts selling his books for more.  Roger Somerville 10/26/2012

Incredibly compelling.  celtictothebone 10/6/2012

Simply put, this is a fine example of historical fiction.  azog 8/5/2012
