in Britannia, northeast coast Our two main protagonists are Caius, the eldest son of a chieftain and Roman descendent, who had walked away from a rich inheritance of land and men to become a monk Here, the very soil was sacred Cai was an uncertain convert to the new faith, but he could feel that much, sense the rightness of the ancient name the tidal island bore, a name like the yearning cry of a bird It rose up in his heart Fara Sancta The island of the holy tide Fara and Fenrir a proud Viking warrior and view spoiler a prince of the Torleik Danes hide spoiler who came to Fara for a raid During said raid Fen had been severely wounded and he had been left behind by his other brothers Brother Caius is not only a monk but also the monastery s physician, and he feels obligated to tend to Fen s wounds and is nursing him back to healthAnd while we are discussing names do me a kindness and stop trying to call me Fenrir You cannot pronounce it, and the sound you make pains me What shall I call you, then Fen will do Very well And since you sound like a sheep giving birth when you say mine, you d better call me Cai And as for your hair, I gave it to the tanner to stuff saddlebags That wasn t true, but the look on Fen s face was worth the price of the lie Don t worry, it ll grow back You can look like a great louse ridden thug again soon enough Fen s brows shot up to the place where his fringe had once been You re a fine one to talk about lice I ve heard about you dirty Christians, mortifying your flesh beneath your robes until it rots using your vows of poverty to excuse yourselves for sleeping in flea ridden filth There, Oslaf Aren t you glad he s started talking Go and get your breakfastThere is a lot to enjoy about this book and I did like it but unfortunately I didn t love it.What will always draw me into a story written by Harper Fox is her undeniably beautiful writing style I love her voice and Brothers of the Wild North Sea is no exception This story reads like an ode to a long bygone time period Besides, it s an homage to a beautiful land and its people, flora and fauna and the sea She knows how to breathe life into her characters and the wonderful and fascinating setting It s done beautifully I m definitely not a bloodthirsty reader, however, I expectedgory scenes in this story, and I must say it felt a bit tame Then again it was a romance, a love story and not a war story Also, what I really liked were the MCs and their dialogue Plus, the well placed humor was vey enjoyable too.Initially I was surprised that a lot of those monks were so ready to sin In German I would have written it s not aZeiterscheinungbecause also today s clerics are not averse to the joys of the flesh I can t translateZeiterscheinungbut telling you it s not an emanation of the times should come pretty close to what I wanted to say.What didn t work for meThe book is very long winded and I could have done with a shorter story Frankly, it wouldn t have impaired the plot at all.I have to wonder if at that time people knew the terms f ing and c ck I like the subject matter enemies to lovers , however, I m not sure if a Viking warrior and view spoiler prince hide spoiler would have fallen for a Christian monk in real life I won t beat around the bush, I found the sex scenes disappointing Interestingly enough, I enjoyed their intimate moments like an embrace, a look or snuggling and hugging muchIt was so muchappealing than the sexual act itself.Is there something like an obligatory WTF moment Well, I ve had one When I hit the 94 % mark the story lost another half star when Caius woke up and was view spoiler staggering outside and he could breathe easily again No pain, no coughing blood any, no nothing Nada He was full of strength and life again hide spoiler Are you f cking kidding me I mean the man was view spoiler dying for Pete s sake and then poof by sheer miracle he has been healed hide spoiler As if I guess if you are willing to suspend belief then it will work out for you Also, I had to wonder how Caius did view spoiler survive such a severe injury and evenso because at that time they didn t have any high tech medicine hide spoiler scratches head Usually I would complain when a book ends at 94 % In this case, however, I was glad for the somewhat abrupt ending before I hit the official 100 % mark since I was so miffed about this unbelievable miracle.Don t get me wrong Brothers of the Wild North Sea is by no means a bad book, and there were enough good reasons to round up to four stars after all Hence, I d like to encourage you to give it a try because what does not suit me might suit you Enjoy He pressed tighter into Fen s embrace This place had forever in it Time couldn t end it, nor even the limits of life Not distance not even the wastes of the wild North Sea.

Therese, Maya, Mel and Bev Thanks LadiesAh She clapped her hands Yes Yes The vikingr are coming Wow, I love historicals I have read so many fantastic books this year so far, this was yet another Brothers of the Wild North Sea is most of all an incredible saga about a strong monk and his larger than life man They first met in anger, felt emotions and loved intensely forthan thousand years ago That s just freaking beautiful to think about Year 687 Christian Era, Britannia, northeast coast It s that almost unknown ancient time when the mighty Roman Empire had fallen and before the new right path with Christianity, had made the overall mighty conquest of the still wild British Isles It is also the time when those, always so happy to fight, steal and murder pagan, wild, blonde stately Vikings, poured in from those Scandinavian nordic still unknown places There was a sail on the horizon A great square sail, pregnant with that breeze In front of it impossibly clear to him just for an instant rode a dragon s head Brothers of the Wild North Sea is a tale about the newly christened brethren Monk Caius Cai , our dark eyed hero, who also become the Fara Monastery s informal doctor in the two years since his conversion This young monk, 24 years and still a moderateOne and Only Mighty Father God believer, is the local warlord Broccus s firstborn son Broc the chieftain is a descended from the Roman army Cai, himself, choosed to leave his fathers, in his opinion disgustful, way of living..revelries, drinking, plenty of fornication with all kind of girls, women and slaves, added with a like for fights, death and war Cai is a happy, lively and an exuberant man A young monk who loves the feel of other men, and thankfully isn t he denying or hiding it So far has Cain been able to satisfy that lust need in this quite tolerant and isolated located monastery lead by the very kind and freethinking Abbot Theodosius But as like everyone else in these times is Cai fearing cruel Vikings from the north sea He could hear bells Disconnected thoughts flicked through his head He would never know the voice of God, not if it depended on chastity He d better get the mattress ticking off, rinse it under the pump Perhaps he should just leave Fara A wolf from the sea He crashed to a halt face to face with a young man whose surpassing beauty was visible even behind the nose guard of his iron helmet The noble face registered what surprise A strange recognition Red bronze hair streamed in the wind Golden wolf s eyes flickered wide Then everthing changes There is grief and pain, new rules, new monks and most important, there is Fenrir Fen Fen, the Torleik Dane is swords injured, he is beautiful and appealing, but still very dangerous A true proud viking warrior view spoiler Fenrir, after Fenrisulfr, the great wolf of our legends You must make me well again, monk, and then you have to set me free I am a prince in my own land second heir to Lord Sigurd s Torleik realm, and Sigurd and my brothers and my comrades will be back for me hide spoiler A grand adventure that for sure enchanted meThere were many long pages to read There were unknown very old words, and for me at least, new historical facts and doctrines There were dark and hopeful myths and old cult I m grateful to have learned a lot about the tough monastic life then in the late 600 s Learn about the monks, those dangerous viking and that fanatical next to horrible hard God faith some people had But also that it might cross my fingers have been possible to really love and have cozy M M moments on a sandy beach if you were a monk even then year 687 Beyond all of those places, here they would be He pressed tighter into Fen s embrace This place had forever in it Time couldn t end it, nor even the limits of life Not distance not even the wastes of the wild North Sea I ve to admit I perhaps wished forlove, cute moments and less horrible bloody stuff sometimes, but as an old historicals buff , I really enjoyed all those finely told details of the monk life then long ago What could be true What were too unbelievable Never mind view spoiler I got my HEA hide spoiler This was a good one To cut a long story review shortI liked the language, the text and this author s own expression Only my second Harper Fox read and this was yet another very positive experience.I LIKE nods frantically intensely When I read a book by Harper Fox, I know I ll be swept out of my reality into a vivid world that engages my senses This book opens to the tang of sea air, the sand and salt grasses and open spaces of a barren northern peninsula Here Cai has escaped the brutish life of his chieftain father s holding for a monastic Christian community with a difference The abbot of this small group is a man of science and learning, and not in the least fixated on doctrine The monks learn about the movement When I read a book by Harper Fox, I know I ll be swept out of my reality into a vivid world that engages my senses This book opens to the tang of sea air, the sand and salt grasses and open spaces of a barren northern peninsula Here Cai has escaped the brutish life of his chieftain father s holding for a monastic Christian community with a difference The abbot of this small group is a man of science and learning, and not in the least fixated on doctrine The monks learn about the movement of the earth along with the life of Christ, and live and labor together to create a sanctuary where the best of faith and discovery can exist side by side There is prayer and tradition, but the abbot is also a practical man, and work is not interrupted constantly for monastic hours And relationships between the brothers, although frowned upon as a breach of chastity, are not anathema Unfortunately, there are rumors that their impoverished monastery conceals a treasure, and those rumors are enough to bring the vikingr raiding Caius learned sword fighting at his father s knee He may be a man of God, but when the lives of his brethren are threatened, he will fight They manage to drive off the first raid, and one of the raiders is left behind, critically wounded Cai is tempted to kill the man, in retribution for the men the monastery has lost, including his friend and bedmate, but he is at heart a healer, and the heat of battle is over So he brings the injured viking into his care And instead of dying, the man, Fenrir, lives.This story progresses very slowly, through Fen s recovery and a gradual sea change in Fen s view of the world, and Cai s view of Fen There is loss and adventure, in an almost cyclic rhythm There is a touch of religion, with a gloss of the mystical, almost the paranormal The old herb witch, the saintly hermit, prophetic dreams and curious animals, come together to give the story just a hint of the otherworldly, over an otherwise deeply reality grounded base The scents and sounds and feel of the era pervade the story, and the men are wonderful characters with strengths that truly complement each other Cai s humility, honor, curiosity and compassion, are a match for Fen s bravery, energy, reckless enthusiasm and fondness for violence When the Church back in Europe sends an intolerant new bishop with teachings of hell fire for heresy, Cai must decide how best to honor his old mentor And when the Vikings raid again, Fen must decide which side he is on.I really liked the slow sweep of this story, which allowed the time for these men to change and grow, and become who they were meant to be It is not the most intense of Harper Fox s books, or my absolute favorite still Scrap Metal , but it stands well among them There is a touch of the possible paranormal in a plot thread that I can t decide whether I like or feel cheated by Another reread will be required to decide ah, the sacrifice Readers who have loved theatmospheric, slow building stories by this author will find themselves delightfully immersed in this one Nope The book centers around the monk of two years and healer, Caius Cai 24 and a Viking raider, Fenrir Fen After a raid, Fen gets hurt by Cai and instead of finishing him off, Cai instead heals him Weeks go, Fen is healing, and the patient and the doctor gets closer Can their love survive duty Here s what I don t understand Fen is supposed to be this badass Viking warrior, yet he is defeated by Cai, a monk who, yes is trained to fight, but nothing compare to F Nope The book centers around the monk of two years and healer, Caius Cai 24 and a Viking raider, Fenrir Fen After a raid, Fen gets hurt by

I just don t see this happening And where s that wildness Cai keep referring to with Fen Thisbarely tamed manAll I saw was a complete tamed man Fen was just there There was nothing special about him.On top of that, where was the enemies to loves trope that was supposed to be here Where s the plot So, to summarize, consider me rather shocked that this book has so many good reviews It was way too long, with nothing happening, and the writing didn t work for me at all It left me rather confused at times This book is so far from Ragnar and Athelstan that it wasn t even funny Ugh Overall, it was a complete bust I struggle to understand a lot of things, I didn t feel the characters connection chemistry, nor did I like the story A bust Damn, I had needed a good read.Other Characters Brother

is when Ragnar and Athelstan almost had a threesome with Ragnar s wife, Lagertha hide spoiler Let s just say that my perverted mind gets a workout while watching that show I m entirely convinced that Ragnar and Athelstan have been indulging all of that sexual tension while the cameras aren t rolling.So Brothers of the Wild North Sea has been on my tbr for a while, but I kept putting it off Now that I ve finally read it, I m wondering why I waited so long This book has everything that I love about Vikings the ruggedness of northern Europe, the wars and battles, the conflict of religious beliefs, and the well rounded cast of characters Plus, the Viking and the monk have lots of hot sex.The book is set in seventh century Britain, at a time where Christianity was not yet fully established in the UK, and native or Roman religious beliefs were still strong I liked the slight history lesson of early Christianity in the book It was interesting to see how early Christianity in Europe was consolidated by the conservative Catholic Church, and how early Christians interacted with non Christians.The relationship between Cai and Fen is at times heartbreaking The two are brought together through war, and then don t really know what to do with each other, They should be enemies, but can t help but respect one another I loved everything about their romance, from the fiery arguments, to the passionate sex, to the pining separations Cai and Fen just fit together.There s a fine line between lyrical and purple Harper Fox handles that line like a pro I was enthralled by her writing from the beginning I could clearly picture what life was like at Fara, this lonely outpost at the edge of the world The world building was superb, and the characters she created came alive on my tablet screen This is one of those books where you ll want to re read a paragraph just because it s written so well.Overall, this was an excellent read Highly recommended I m going to start by talking about what this book is not There are books that manipulate you to tears the author s hand is heavy, even clumsy, as you re punched in the face over and over again like a boxer with a speedbag This is not one of those books.There are historical novels which are so mired in detail and accuracy, they forget to tell a story This is not one of those books.There are stories about faith which

beautiful story, it could have been set anywhere, anytime The historical details were used, not to make a point, but to enrich the story The sights and the smells and sounds of Fara weren t included to show that the author Did Her Research, but to show the emotions and experiences of the characters Setting That s how it should be done.Lastly, this is a book about love, and about faith, and instead of making me feel preached to, it made me want to believe in miracles You should read this book Audio 5 stars Love it when the author chooses the perfect narratorStory 4.5 stars I think I can

687 AD, Fara, The Orkney Islands His voice is frank and sometimes gruff, but at the same time somehow muffled or restrained its comforting gravely tones seem to have risen up from a deep place, like a well or the bottom of the sea It is stonelike in its suggestion of stoical endurance, but the stone is a standing stone and it is enchanted It is a voice that will draw tears down your cheeks before the book is done Listening to this book requires patience It moves slowly, and its narrative rhythms, as Kaje Harper notes in her superb review, are cyclical In fact, it seems likely that Fox adopts this narrative style deliberately as a way of carrying the reader into a storyspace that predates the appearance of the novel with itslinear pattern of rising and falling action The result of this stylistic choice is a kind of dreamlike immersion in religiously heterogenous 7th century Britain, where denizens of old faiths and new clash and argue and fuck by the sea It s the kind of novel in which the wavelike cycles of event and action imperceptibly intensify until suddenly you notice that your pillow is wet because your eyes have been leaking tears for the last 40 minutes The main characters of Fox s romance are a Christian monk and a Viking warrior who fall in love against all probability when the wounded Dane Fenrir is left behind by his fellows at the monastery on Fara during a Viking raid There he is spared and nursed back to health by Brother Caius, a Christian convert who is beginning to learn the new gospel not just of Jesus but of science at the feet of the eccentric abbott, a displaced heretical Christian whose gnosticism jars with the official doctrine of the ascendant church of Rome In the permissive even wild intellectual atmosphere of Fara, scientific knowledge that anticipates a Renaissance still centuries in the future seems poetically of a piece with the quieter but similarly subversive revolution in sexual permissiveness that also blossoms at night in the cells of the restless monks Meanwhile, other religions in the region make their presence felt, represented by the pagan witch who provides Caius with healing herbs and Ciaus s estranged father and his clansmen who wonder suspiciously at Caius s new faith I can only hint at the austere sumptuousness of this complex, exquisitely evoked setting and the characters who pulse with life within it None are caricatures And the narrative s commitment to unfolding the lifespace of this alien yet uncannily familiar world is deliberate and exacting The stark realism of the novel is often touched, too, by enchantment It is sometimes hard to tell, in the moment of its occurrence, when that sense of enchantment is simply an effect of Fox s animistic lyricism and when it indicates aprofound disruption of the world s quotidian surface In both cases, the effect is heart lifting and magical Despite the starkness of the world it evokes, this is a novel about love s power to transcend history The ideal lovers are drawn from rival traditions whose members were historically at violent odds There is something brilliant and amazing that Fox does near the end of the novel to concretize this transcendence in a symbol, and when you consider the journey of this symbol not just through the pages of the book, but throughout the long history to which it is attached that the book can indicate but not dramatize, the radicalism of Fox s treatment of love begins to take shape For many reasons, it is a book that I will reread In part because I fell in love with the romance between the two main characters, whose growing love for each other is beautifully recounted, with surprising plausibility, humor, and heart On a purely visceral level, it wrecked me and restored me in the best possible way But I will reread Brothers of the Wild North Sea also because it is an ambitious, genre transcending work by an extremely talented author whose vision I greatly admire It is stylistically impressive, dense, and many layered I have no doubt it will repay multiple readings and I recommend it very warmly {Free Epub} Î Brothers of the Wild North Sea Í His deadliest enemy will
