Viking Blood – the series video
“The series give an excellent and convincing picture of the Viking era, at the time when the first Christian monks went north.The description of the characters and the environment work well. The text is easy to read, is written in an animated language with short sentences. It is printed in large, clear type with a well arranged layout, and the b/w drawings contribute to the mood and support the story excellently.
The books have appealing, colour illustrated covers.
Can be read from the age of 9.”
“The story is filled with drama and strong emotions, and beautifully illustrated with lots of expressive pen drawings by Pia Falck Pape.”
A personal review – Darya, editor
“Marianne, the first thing I have to say about your story is it is absolutely captivating! I just wanted to keep reading and keep reading to find out what happened next. I think your use of the very short chapters is very affective in keeping the pace steady and gave me little nuggets to chew on as I moved on to the next scene. Your imagery is vivid and lively and you did very well with the character development. Your story is well written. And I’ll tell you this, I consider it a great story when I can bond with the characters and get to know them well and when I can see the action played out in my head just by reading it.”
It is the young Christian monk, Hannibal that tells the Viking boy Hauge that his father, Styrbjorn, has been killed in the bloody attack on their village. The conversation with Hannibal is the beginning of a lifelong friendship, which also makes Hauge wonder about the strange new God that Hannibal talks about.
When Hauge’s father is laid to rest, in the manner customary for a Viking Chieftain, the dumb slave-girl Astrid is chosen to follow her master to Valhalla. Yet Hauge tries to prevent this when Astrid ”tells” him something. During Styrbjorn’s burial ceremony, Aasa, Hauge’s mother, promises her deceased husband that Hauge will avenge him when the time is right.
