6 out of 10

I am a little devided when it comes to this book. The beginning I found to be very slow and repetitive. Thorgills descriptions of Vinland seem to be all the same. The stories he tells aren't that exciting and the characters that are protrayed in the book all seem to miss a certain amount of depth to make them believable.
The book really started accumulating some more 'narrative speed' after Thorgills description of the battle only to fall flat again when he flees from the monastery and meets Eochaid.
I don't know what to make of it. I am curious to find out how defender of the Old Ways Thorgills ends up as the White Christ monk Thangbrand in the beginning of the narrative, but I am hoping that the sequel to this book (Sworn Brothers) is much better, or I won't even bother to read the last part of the viking trilogy!
