    PDF Betsy Tobin ✓ PDF Ice Land eBook Á ✓ ant web.co land epub, Ice Land KindleA uniue and unforgettable take on the Norse godsThe culture of Iceland is explored during the time period when Christianity just begins to encroach on the old religion via Norway It's a beautiful blend of myth and history weaving such characters as gods half gods dwarves and giants into a tapestry of characters who feel lush and realThe book does a marvelous job of turning the original legend of Freya's necklace into a plausible story as long as you're willing to accept a few premises such as the concept of a woman turning into a falcon with the aid of a magic cloak As var

    PDF Betsy Tobin ✓ PDF Ice Land eBook Á ✓ ant web.co land epub, Ice Land KindleIce Land is a somewhat fanciful take on the legends of the Old Norse Gods set in the year 1000 It is told through the point of view of several characters in alternating chapters from Freya who can don her feathers and fly like a bird orphaned Fulla who does not wish to marry the man her grandfather has chosen Vili son of the sworn enemy of Fulla's family who can't stay away from Fulla the half dwarf Dvalin who dwells inside the mountain with his half brothers as well as the Norns who foreshadow the building turmoil within the great mountain Hekla The actions of the various characters begin to intertwine and ultimately lead them to their ultimate fate at the hands of the angry volcano Hekla I'm really not inclined t

    PDF Betsy Tobin ✓ PDF Ice Land eBook Á ✓ ant web.co land epub, Ice Land KindleAlthough I am not as steeped in Norse mythology as some I know enough about it to understand and admire what Betsy Tobin was trying to do with this book and I think she succeeded beautifully She pulled a tale from the 14th c Saga of Olaf Tryggvason added her own elements and created a wonderful story that I found utterly captivating This is far fantasy than historical fiction nevertheless she has grounded her tale in the very real setting of early medieval Iceland Her descriptions of the landscape are wondrous and her portrayal of the lives of the early settlers of Iceland ring true She has uite successfully brought the Norse

    PDF Betsy Tobin ✓ PDF Ice Land eBook Á ✓ ant web.co land epub, Ice Land KindleWhat a disappointment I was really excited about this book because the little teaser sounded so enticing First of all it took me uite a while to get accustomed to the authors writing style The plot jumped back and forth between characters that had no depth whatsoever as the author found odd ways to connect them I felt like I was reading a fantasy version of Six Degrees of Separation I found Ice Land to be dry and shallow with underdeveloped characters in a bizarre plot that was not the least bit interesting I give every book a chance to the 100th page I wish I had put this down long before that

    PDF Betsy Tobin ✓ PDF Ice Land eBook Á ✓ ant web.co land epub, Ice Land KindleThis book was not my cup of tea The mediocre love story the disjointed narrative the boring dialogue the flat characterizations I don’t even know where to begin Tobin’s writing didn’t appeal to me and neither did her novel It wasn’t awful it had potential and there were vaguely interesting concepts but I don’t think I’ll be r

    PDF Betsy Tobin ✓ PDF Ice Land eBook Á ✓ ant web.co land epub, Ice Land KindleThis book made me miss the Vikings class I took back in college You can tell that the historical and cultural research for the most part is pretty solid but the book also has a weird blend of like the gods are real and they live right over there but wait Christianity is afoot Honestly this blending is done pretty well but it took me longer than it should have to really grasp that Overall the book is very good it’s well written the characterization and relationship development is nicely done and it thoroughly entrenches you in the setting of 1000 AD Iceland My only complaint is that I’m a dumb ass and didn’t realize this is t
