Story (5/5): This continues to be an amazing historical fantasy series. This time the story focuses on Thorfinn getting drawn back into war with the Jomsvikings. He is determined to stay out of it all until some of his party gets taken hostage. What follows is an amazingly bloody battle that Thorfinn wanted nothing to do with. As things play out Thorfinn will inadvertently change the path of history forever.
Characters (5/5): The characters in this series are amazing. All of them are fully developed and I loved reading about them. We spend a lot of time with Thorfinn, Gorm, Floki, Floki’s grandson, and Gudrid in this book. I do wish there was an illustrated guide to the characters in the beginning of these volumes; there are just getting to be so many characters in this series.
Setting (5/5): Most of this story takes place at a fortressed castle that the Jomsvikings are trying to invade. It’s a beautifully done historical setting and I enjoyed it a lot.
Writing/Illustration Style (5/5): These continue to be both amazingly well written and beautifully illustrated. The illustration here is so detailed, easy to follow, and just stunning. The writing flows well and is easy to follow; there is always a bit of humor to offset the violence and tragedy. I love the sections between books where Yukimura goes over the known history and Thorfinn’s geographical journey so far.
Summary (5/5): Overall this remains my absolute favorite manga series right now. Everything about it is absolutely perfect. It’s beautifully drawn, amazingly written, and just a joy to read. I want to pre-order volume 12 right now!
Vinland Saga enters its final arc in the next book. Book 14 or 15 should be the end of the series.
Only problem was that a small part of the plastic that's encased around the cover to make it glossy has pealed off.
I NEED BOOK 12 SOON!!!!! I AM SO EXCITED FOR WHAT’S NEXT TO COME!!!! I don’t want to read it through cheap websites that is filled with ads! BUYING THE BOOK ITSELF SUPPORTS THE MANGA!!!
