They all had kinda the same voice so it was hard to distinguish between them sometimes. They were being taught vital fighting skills and camaraderie at the same time, which to me really exemplifies the Skandian mindset of fighting and friendship, how when a person dies, they die with their sword in hand and all their friends around.

Or was there another way? Thank goodness that’s over. The icy waters make for a treacherous playing field. Bit of a cliffhanger though, but that just means I’ll have to read the next book too. Common Sense is a nonprofit organization.

Erak is Oberjarl of Skandia. At first it’s kind of surprising that almost yhe whole book focuses on the brotherband training, but it sets up ouctasts series well and hints at the excitement to come.
