This was a very entertaining book. If you're looking for a quick but exciting read, then definitely pick this book up. But this book is heavy on violence (but since it's about two warring Viking tribes that is expected.) There are a couple of kisses (one being quite passionate), and the main character gets a few leering looks from men. Thankfully, there is absolutely no language in this book! (Why can't more books be like this?) For the brutality described in this book, I think it would be best for 14+.
