Description

The clouds in front of him began to shade over, their airy inscriptions spelling out a message of welcome — or maybe a warning — as the promise of land became clear. 

Eydis. 

As an accomplished Viking warrior, Sterlig Kyvansson always found a way to get what he wanted — until he wanted Arja Freydottir. After Sterlig is denied the right to marry Arja, he is determined to do anything in his power to claim her as his own — even if it means slaying the dragon that guards the cursed island of Eydis. 

With his brother’s sword at his side and Arja’s hand on the line, Sterlig sets out for Eydis with his friends. When they arrive, they quickly find that the rumors of Eydis are all true, including the irresistible beauty of the Princess of Eydis, Brynja the Bride. With her blessing, Sterlig heads out into battle with the dragon. But near that battle’s end, Sterlig discovers the terrifying secret behind Eydis’ power. Is it already too late, or can his discovery still make a difference?

I read this before I listened to it

A short prequel to the the series is a great short story. Performance leaves me lacking, but the story carries him through for me. I do not care for his breathy soft voice. It is not something that I find suitable for a book narration for this style of and nature of book, though, as I said the story it self carries him through. I do recommend READING this prequel short. C. S. Johnson's writing style is a lovely blend of historical and fairy tale retellings that are wonderful and I highly recommend her Starlight Chronicle's Series.

THIS WILL BE ANOTHER GOOD ONE

THE OPENING STORYLINE TO THIS PREQUEL IS GREAT AND AND THE CLOSING LET ME KNOW THERE'S MORE ADVENTURE TO COME. STORYLINE IS GOOD AND EASY TO FOLLOW. ACCEPTABLE FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES. NARRATOR IS GREAT AND EASY TO FOLLOW.

Quick and fun fairy tale vibes

I received a free copy and am voluntarily leaving this review. First let me talk about the narrator: he has a good voice but I think he'd be much better suited for a different setting or genre. His voice and style didn't pull me into the story at all really, I had to focus on listening and never really felt "pulled in" by it. I'd listen to him again, just not for fantasy/fiction imo. The actual story though? After getting pasty beginning issues of tuning in, I wound up really enjoying it. I actually disliked the main character Sterlig(spelling?) at first - I couldn't take him seriously. But he kind of grows on you and I actually didn't see the ending coming so that was a happy surprise. The writing is also just descriptive and pretty on its own as well if that makes sense. I hadn't read or listened to anything from this author before and while it's much shorter than most things I consume, I think I'll definitely look for other works by her when I'm wanting something quicker.
