A pretty good read, not great, but good. This book was a last minute impulse buy, and I only grabbed it because Diana Gabaldon (one of my favorite authors) said it was "magic". I wouldn't call it magic, but it was certainly entertaining.
Part fairy tale, part Icelandic history, the story follows several characters while they struggle to keep ahold of their heritage and culture in an ever changing world. I found the characters interesting, and I was invested in the story, and the outcome...there was just something missing.
