From Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up-An exciting historical adventure. After Ran is accused of causing her mother's death, she is selected as the sacrifice to Odin at the Allfather's yearly celebration. An attack of raiders led by her mother's suitor, Vigut, allows the blind musician Toki to rescue Ran, and the two flee Norway for Iceland to start a new life. Ran's fortunes improve for a while. She and Toki have two children and manage a farm, but fate again intervenes, and Vigut reappears, killing most of the people in their landlord's holding. Toki dies, along with most of the raiders, when a freak storm floods the area, but Ran and her children survive. Branford has written a dark, foreboding story full of ancient beliefs and fortuitously timed disasters. Offerings of meat and runes are made to Odin and Freya and floods arrive at just the right moment to save Ran from certain death. Ran tells the story of her past-interjecting observations about her present circumstances-in a straightforward manner. She speaks of the sadness of knowing her mother doesn't love her and describes the acts of violence committed by the raiders, but her voice lacks passion. Nevertheless, her story is compelling and offers readers a glimpse of what life may have been like for a Viking woman.
