I received a digital advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I tend to gravitate towards oceanic covers, and this one is just absolutely breathtaking. This was a total page turner for me. I requested this novel because of the astonishing cover, but quickly fell in love. I had no idea it was a sequel until I receive my review copy, so of course I went back and read Sky in the Deep first. While this is a sequel in the series, it is a very strong stand-alone as it follows different characters with mild character crossovers.
This book was just as good, if not better than Sky in the Deep with just as many strong female characters. Adrienne Young has such a beautifully descriptive way of making you feel in the drama! I absolutely loved this book.

Who doesn’t love a badass viking chick? I love the harsh truth of viking culture within this book. I will admit, this book was not on my radar until I received an ARC of the sequel. I found myself drawn in almost immediately. I love how fiercely loyal viking clans are portrayed and how even if you are a woman you are equal on the battlefield.
The writing in this book really sticks with you because of its sheer poetic beauty. I love that most of the characters are strong women. We need more of these in today’s fiction! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
