4.5 stars for The Seafarer’s Bride by Laura Strickland #vikingromance #historicalromance #bookreview

Title: The Seafarer’s Bride

Author: Laura Strickland

Genre: Viking Historical Romance

Book Blurb:

A year ago, Magnus Tolljursson helped repel a treacherous attack from his father’s enemies, and discovered he carries the berserker’s seed of madness. Now he must sail to the settlement from whence those attackers came, and fulfill a promise to a friend. He doesn’t know what he’ll find in Husavik and never suspects he may lose his heart.

In her father’s absence, Embra Fritisson has been engaged in a desperate battle to keep leadership of the settlement. When Magnus arrives saying her father is dead, she fears her unstable family will splinter into factions and destroy one another. She must retain control, but how can she hope to keep her head while falling in love with the enemy?

My Review:

The third book of this series is another book in this series. Here you have Magnus from the Berserker Isle venturing back to the old place from book one. In a small way, this kind of brings the story full circle.

The book is done in a different fashion from the first two. The excellent detailed battle scenes are really missing from this book. There is much more 'palace' intrigue.

The character development continues to be strong and rich. The descriptive nature of the work takes the reader back to Viking days. There is a lot more magic and spirituality in this book. This may work for those who are deeply interested in that. Some readers prefer the standard sword on sword kind of story.

If you are a fan of this series, you will want to get the third book. Fans of Vikings will want to get this book. Though not prestigious, this book is a fine third part to this series.

My Rating: 4.5 stars

Author Biography:

Multi award-winning author Laura Strickland delights in time traveling to the past and searching out settings for her books, be they Historical Romance, Steampunk or something in between. Her first Scottish Historical hero, Devil Black, battled his way onto the publishing scene in 2013, and the author never looked back. Nor has she tapped the limits of her imagination. Venturing beyond Historical and Contemporary Romance, she created a new world with her ground-breaking Buffalo Steampunk Adventure series set in her native city, in Western New York. Married and the parent of one grown daughter, Laura has also been privileged to mother a number of very special rescue dogs, the latest being a little boy called Tinker, and is intensely interested in animal welfare. Her love of dogs, and her lifelong interest in Celtic history, magic and music, are all reflected in her writing. Laura’s mantra is Lore, Legend, Love, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
