Lots of adventure!

I really enjoyed this book and am going to recommend it to my kids 10 and 12. Young kids may have a hard time understanding the terminology so I recommended age 10 and up but it could be a read aloud for younger kids. I’m surprised it has any marks for sex. The only thing I can think of is someone accusing the war band of “carrying off women from a village” implying there may have been rape. I Love the inner kindness of the main character and the loyalty to family and friends. Also the idea that sometimes family has done things wrong and we can forgive them and not do as they have done. Can’t wait to read the sequel!
