The Viking's Sacrifice by Julia Knight

Viking raiders destroyed Wilda's home. She witnessed the murder of her mother and would have been killed herself if it weren't for the Viking boy Einar, who saved her from his ruthless brother. The blood and murder left Wilda cold and shorn of feeling.

Eight years later, the heathens return for Wilda. As a captive in the Viking village, she finds protection and silent comfort in the man who once gallantly saved her.

Einar has been cursed to silence by his brother. With the dark net of his brother's power cast over their village, silence is a small price to pay for his family's safety. But Einar is immediately drawn to Wilda, and the need to protect her from his brother awakens his Viking courage. Can Einar break his brother's curse in time to save the village and the woman he loves?

Reviewer: Fashionta
Ah the Vikings, always mistaken as blood thirsty men who raid and kill. This book portrays them in a better light. Yes, we have the blood thirsty jarl but most of the characters are actually kind and thoughtful after they realize that not everything is as it seems and sometimes the truth is hidden under the surface. This book shows how two societies can have warped ideas about each other but come together when needed. It’s a beautiful story and engaging to say the least.

I give this book 4 stars and hope that we get a series out it. We need to know what happened to the hero’s sister and brother who played an important role in this story.
