I'm on page 250 of Dublin Crossing and am completely delighted by this book! Your details are descriptive yet not overbearing--allowing the reader to create their own picture as the story moves. Some authors have a strong voice for the main characters and all the rest seem to blend into one ambiguous sound. Not so with you. Not only can I distinctly identify the 5 or so main characters, but also an entire cast that spans 3 countries! Reading this story is like going to a theatrical production where all of the extras have talent enough for the lead. A marvelous work to be sure!

It's one of those books that I cannot wait to finish, yet I want it to go on forever.

Thank you for writing these stories!

I had gotten a couple of the books in this series when I was younger and wanted to get the rest - which I did. All of them are set in Ireland of yesteryear, showing how they lived and the way faith was approached at the time. They all have great adventures and will keep you occupied, they're all pretty hard to put down. The only note I have is that it switches viewpoints a lot, different chapters are shown from different character's points of views, which isn't a bad thing but you have to keep track.

It's sort of hard to know who to root for--the Celts, who, if they do not have a common enemy to fight, fight and slaughter one another? Or the Danes, who are there for pillage and spoils and fun, and who kill just as many people as the Celts?

In spite of this cynical opening on my part, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is high adventure and an unlikely, but satisfying, romance, which BTW remains clean. Ulf (Wolf) the Dane, is made a slave after he washes ashore in Ireland following the capsizing of his dragon boat during an attack on a Celtic farmhold on the island of Lambay. Although he did not take part in the attack, having been left to guard a boat, he is considered a spoil of war. He decides that if he must be a slave, perhaps the best way to earn his freedom is to be a willing and obliging worker. He meets Shawna, whose family was killed on Lambay, but over time they begin a friendship as she teaches him Gaelic and he teaches her Danish. She also teaches him of her God, but for a long time this makes no sense to his pagan mind.

By the time they are falling in love, an opportunity to escape comes along and Wolf seizes it and returns home. Later, his people plan another raid and he goes with them, hoping against hope to be able to protect her.

Although my favorite so far of Sandy Dengler's books is the Australian Destiny series, this earlier series comes close. There are a lot of people introduced in this book, whose stories twine together, but I never felt overwhelmed nor forgetful of who was who (unusual for me!) Sandy is a mightily talented author who brings the era of the late 7th century in Ireland and Denmark to life. There were only a few pages where I thought the story dragged a tad--but not enough to cost a star! This is wonderful entertainment, taking place during the early days of the evangelizing of Ireland and is a most unusual book.
