    EBOOK / KINDLE (Ice Land) By Betsy Tobin This book made me miss the Vikings class I took back in college You can tell that the historical and cultural research for the most part is pretty solid but the book also has a weird blend of like the gods are real and they live right over there but wait Christianity is afoot Honestly this blending is done pretty well but it took me longer than it should have to really grasp that Overall the book is very good

review Ice Land Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB free read ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Betsy Tobin Betsy Tobin ✓ 3 characters A beautiful epic of love longing redemption and enchantment in the tradition of Marion Zimmer Bradley's The Mists of Avalon Iceland AD 1000 Freya knows that her people are doomed Warned by the Fates of an impending disaster she must embark on a journey to find a magnificent gold necklace one. I gave this 5 stars because it is EXACTLY the sort of book I like As soon as it came out I was prepared to buy it and I rarely buy books any Ice Land takes place in Iceland one of several countries I have never visited but am obsessed with and intend to visit ASAP It s 1000 AD the year when Iceland officially converted to Christianity Some of the old Norse gods are beginning to get unsettled worrying about the possibility of their world falling into ruin Ragnarok A large volcano is beginning to show signs of impending danger Meanwhile the Icelandic people deal with the same hopes and troubles as always The story is narrated in the present tense this was the only part that kind of threw me off it s very unusual and intended to evoke an epic mood The speaker is the Norse love goddess Freya who is going to try to influence the future by going on a uest to get a legendary necklace from the dwarves Here I think it s essential to mention that although it doesn t happen in the book Freya drives a CAT DRAWN CHARIOT Too awesomeFreya s uest leads her to a lot of unexpected people and situations and some uncomfortable decisions Her story eventually becomes enmeshed with another plotline a Romeo and Juliet scenario in which a young woman named Fulla is torn between her duty to her grandfather who wants her to marry well and her love for a man from a rival family There s adventure romance and beautiful descriptions of Iceland including GEOLOGY I love geology especially when it s so dramatic I already like romantic historical fantasies and this one had all the extras that I would like so since it was right up my alley I liked it a lot

review Ice Land Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB free read ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Betsy Tobin Betsy Tobin ✓ 3 characters Said to possess the power to alter the course of history But even as Freya travels deep into the mountains of Iceland the country is on the brink of war The new world order of Christianity is threatening the old ways of Iceland's people and tangled amidst it all are two star crossed lovers. This book was not my cup of tea The mediocre love story the disjointed narrative the boring dialogue the flat characterizations I don t even know where to begin Tobin s writing didn t appeal to me and neither did her novel It wasn t awful it had potential and there were vaguely interesting concepts but I don t think I ll be recommending this one to anyone or rushing into another of Tobin s titles I admit I picked up this book largely because it was hailed as a beautiful epic of love longing redemption and enchantment in the tradition of Marion Zimmer Bradley s The Mists of Avalon Bradley is one of my all time favorite authors and many her novels are among my favorite reads so I thought this one would be a slam dunk The tag line was probably added by the publishers to sell copies Unfortunately for Tobin it set a very high set of expectations which her storytelling fails to achieve Like others I feel that the book would have benefited from a character list with descriptions Maybe even a brief review of the stories themselves I fall in with those that know nothing about these myths and as a result the novel comes off fragmented and disorganizedDiana Gabaldon stated that Ice Land is a story of sex love blood and the twilight of the gods punctuated with hot pools boiling magma and volcanic explosions Very steamy No offense to Ms Gabaldon but my morning coffee is steamier than this book Not that I was looking for a steamy read but the love story left my snoozing I couldn t have cared less about the outcome and kept asking myself when I was going to see the passion or even a connection between Tobin s lovers I believe Tobin bit off than she should have There is just too much here the star crossed lovers the invasion of Christianity the uest for the necklace As a result no aspect is particularly compelling For me Ice Land is an easily forgettable read that failed to make an impression
