Excellent Book . Once I began reading I couldn't stop till I quickly came to the end. Each story pulled me in right from the start. The more I learned about Ing and his adventures the more I wanted to know. I hope there is a followup soon. I recommend to anyone that enjoys a good tale of action and adventure.
Ing the Viking was packed full of adventure and holds true to its Norse mythological roots. The writing is tight and the artwork top notch. Any fan of both fantasy and adventure fiction should read this book. The only problem with the book is that it is a quick read and that I must wait for the next installment. Please note, I'm Ralph, Tammie's husband, who wrote this review.
Ing the Viking, by Philip Lee McCall II, follows the various adventures of Ing as he travels through the land, facing down foes and battling various creatures. The stories are clever and quick, with beautifully done illustrations throughout the book. There are five stories of adventure as we follow Ing and his companions. The stories are told in an anachronic order, and the narrative ark is cleverly done and very interesting to follow. I enjoyed this book very much, and am waiting anxiously for the next book so I can continue following along with Ing on his adventures. I am curious to see where he winds up, along with his companion, Kipp.
