“Once again, Brown brings Viking history to vivid, unexpected life―and in the process, turns what we thought we knew about Norse culture on its head. Superb.” ―Scott Weidensaul, author of A World on the Wing
“Magnificent. It captured me from the very first page.” ―Pat Shipman, author of The Invaders
“A complex, important, and delightful addition to women’s history.” ―Pamela D. Toler, author of Women Warriors
