Halfdan has dreamed of being a warrior his whole life, but there was no way that was going to happen because he is a slave. At least, Halfdan believes it’s impossible until his mother gives up her own life to buy his freedom, making him a freeman and acknowledged by the chief as his own son. Halfdan’s new older brother teaches him the art of swordfighting, but neither Halfdan nor his brother realize that he’ll need to call upon these newly learned skills so soon.
Viking Warrior was neither a good book nor a bad book. It taught me a lot about vikings, a topic I didn’t know much about before, but the novel was fairly slow-paced and I found it didn’t hold my attention very long. I also think it was written for a different audience.
