Askeladd has taken Prince Canute and gone deep behind enemy territory. Thorfinn is given the task of protecting the Prince. However finally the inevitable happens and the war hungry Thorkill catches up with Askeladd’s army. Thorkill wants to finish his fight with Thorfinn once and for all.
The fight scenes are epic and the story is absolutely amazing. This book focuses a lot on Askeladd and Thorfinn. We also learn a lot more about the history between Thorfinn’s father and Thorkell.
Even more touching is the story of the unwanted Prince Canute. Prince Canute is a soft-spoken boy who had a gentle upraising not suited for all this war. However as events unravel we finally get to see the true metal within Prince Canute.
I continue to enjoy the summaries between chapters that show Thorfinn’s journey so far and the small comments about how this story follows the history of that time period. It’s all incredibly interesting.
The illustration remains top notch. There is just so much beautiful detail in this book. It is a pleasure to look at and to read.
Overall an absolutely fantastic addition to the Vinland Saga series. I highly recommend this series to all manga fans out there. This has been an incredibly well done epic historical manga with engaging characters, awesome action, beautiful illustration, and an epic story too! It’s just fantastic and I can’t wait to read the next one in the series!
Question: Did anyone's copy have colored pages 211-214 UPSIDE DOWN?! How do I go about replacing this, Amazon or Kodansha Comics?
UPDATE (6/2/14): I asked Amazon for a replacement and the pages that were upside down are fixed.
Makoto Yukimura is brilliant with this manga. Beautifully drawn, amazing fighting scenes and intense story line. To me this manga equals Naoki Urasawa's Monster or even 20th Century Boys. This is one you need to have I'm your collection. I'm really looking forward to Vinland Saga: book four.
