    A fun, quick read. I found it a perfectly crafted short story. Great for readers wanting to know more about the wider story commenced in the first novel, but easily read as a stand alone.

    A short story set ten years after the first book in the series. Two boys born in the previous book go exploring in the forbidden territory of enemies (They are Raven, the nemesis Wolf clan, just a raft ride across the water). Vengeance feuds are continued, a new friend, perhaps, for the future is suggested.

    The 2 olders boys go take a look at Lakevale when they are 10yo. They are seen and pursued by One-Eye. They finally make it off the island and back to home.

    A short story involving two of the children born in Markland from Taber's United States of Vinland series, this was a "missing moment" between the end of the first book of the series and book two (as revealed by the teaser at the end of book one). Just a little adventure for a couple of boys "testing their braves" as my mom used to say. We meet another character, hear about a problem character, and ... that's about it. But if you are really wanting more of this series, a taste is better than not A short story involving two of the children born in Markland from Taber's United States of Vinland series, this was a "missing moment" between the end of the first book of the series and book two (as revealed by the teaser at the end of book one).

    A wonderful quick story of youth escapades. Two young sons of the founders of Godsland, decide to explore due to fresh spring and boredom. And they eventually decide on Lakeland, against their Fathers edicts. Read on.

    A nice extra scene from the Norse America trilogy. I gives a nice background and character development for the soon to be main characters in the second book of the series. It can be read in under an hour. I am enjoying this fictional world of Colin Taber.

    A good little tale about two boys pushing the boundaries and getting in trouble. It was paced well and the story was interesting. I can't wait to see what the author does with this storyline in future tales. The eBook was formatted well with no obvious errors.

    More a long short story, but may well be integral to the story line of the Vinland series. It is the story of two boys on a self made adventure, not unlike those we did as children, albeit in a different time and place.

    Enjoyable short read following on from the first novel in the series and continuing with the characters met there. This probably wouldn't make much sense as a stand alone story so best read as part of the series. Can be read very quickly in a lunchtime.

    Good filler for Red Winter.

    A short story tied to Taber's earlier viking work. Interesting enough but simplistic. I'd like to read further books in the series if they're available.

    Not fantastic, but a good story. Might pick up the series if I have the chance.

    It is at the end of Red Winter, but to be read first.
