There is a very old story, rarely told, of a wolf that runs into the ocean and becomes a whale…
Born with the soul of a hunter and the spirit of the Wolf, Omat is destined to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps-invoking the spirits of the land, sea, and sky to protect her people.
But the gods have stopped listening and Omat’s family is starving. Desperate to save them, Omat journeys across the icy wastes, fighting for survival with every step. When she encounters Brandr, a wounded Viking warrior, they set in motion a conflict that could shatter her world…or save it.
Abandoned at 64%. That’s the odd one out. Normally, once I’m this far in, I would finish it. But this book has been sitting on my kindle for months now and i gotta admit that I will never get back to it.
It’s a shame, as it started out really interesting! It was slow, but well-written and the author made me invested in Omat and her people. It’s a bleak world and Omat has to suffer a lot. I would have liked to read about her overcoming the odds but nah.
What pissed me off was, that this viking dude turned up and confessed to having raped 3 people. But he’s the one I should feel sorry about cause ‘that’s what vikings do’ and ‘he didn’t have a choice’. Come on. I am aware that the vikings were raping and pillaging. But don’t make it seem like he’s the freaking victim!!!! And it doesn’t make it okay ‘because everyone was doing it’!!! Oh, the poor man. Haunted by the eyes of the 3rd rape victim who killed herself after he was done with her. Now, how could she do this to him and make him feel so bad about it?
I’m disgusted. This is ALL kinds of wrong. No more of this book. Where are all the positive ratings coming from? Did I misread anything? Did he actually not rape anyone? Is he dying a most horrible death? Am I overreacting? Tell me spoilers, please!
