Summary

The past is waiting.  

Josie Jackson is whisked further into the past, to the era of Vikings and the (almost) eternal winters of Norway. Carter, the mastermind behind her foray through time, reveals that she'll be remaining there for six years - assuming she survives the first winter. To complicate matters, Josie has an unexpected health condition, one that threatens her life more than the frigid cold, Viking raids, and wild animals.  

After un-creating Taylor and leaving Batu in the Mongol era, Josie wants nothing to do with any other man, especially not the Viking warrior she's engaged to shortly after dropped into a fjord in front of his village. Not everyone is as he seems in this era, from her reluctant new husband, to the mystic - scorned by the rest of the village - whose futuristic visions are too accurate to be divine, to Carter, the evil genius who's tormented her through three eras of history.   

When she finally learns the truth behind why he chose her, she understands too well what the stakes of this game really are.

An excellent series that keeps getting better!

How does a series start out excellent and then proceed to get better with each subsequent book? That is certainly true for this series!

First off, if you haven't read the first two books in the series... Stop! These books must be read in order to enjoy the full effect of the plot.

Josie was separated from her Mongol husband, Batu and transported to a Viking community. She is absorbed into the community. She arrived pregnant, unbeknownst to her and finds herself married to a Viking warrior willing to adopt her children as his own.

Life in the Viking era is perhaps more challenging than life on the Mongol steppes. Carter is good about placing her with people who come to care for and love Josie. This time is no exception. Josie learns to live in the Viking era but Carter may have further plans for her that probably won't include her children and certainly will not give her any choices.

I loved the adventure in this book which had me on edge several times. I love the sudden twists in the plot that keeps the reader anticipating more. All I can think is that Lizzy Ford has a major challenge ahead as she brings the series to a close with the last book. I am looking forward to it!!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Fantastic

This series continues to surprise me. I'm reminded again and again why I live this author so much.

With each journey Josie takes she learns more and more about herself and the world's she's dropped into. It's been amazing watching her learn and grow, to accept and change. Each new era with whole new sets of dangers that she must overcome.

Being that it IS a connected series, this one will leave you on one hellofa spine tingling cliffhanger!

As always, this narrator is PERFECT for this series and brings the book to life in vivid detail.

blew my mind

I think this is the best in the series so far, even if it ends on a cliffhanger.... again. But what an end, I literally jump up and yelled WHAT??? when she comes face to face with her tormentor, who I got to hate as much as she did and it is revealed who it is really.
What an epic story this is, the few years spent among the Vikings, her unexpected discovery when she arrives there. Loved how she becomes stronger and more sure of herself, she survives some harrowing events, all because she has no choice really. Being a Mother too, I understand her resolve to do anything to protect. I was so happy when Batu found her again, but it is not to be ... again as she is whisked out of that time and placed in another. I hope SOUTH is coming out soon in audio because I have to know what happens next! I need to know WHY!
Ms. Yves comes a long way from the first book, her voice is perfect for Josie. No 'male' voices, yet all the characters are distinguishable with distinctive voice. Well done. I really enjoyed how she was able to tell the story and having it played in my mind so vividly.

Best One Yet!!

It is wonderful the research that was done in this time period. Josie is learning a lot of lifes lessons in her time traveling. The ending makes me think about all the things that happened in this time period and what will come. I loved this book and am looking forward to more. Good writing and narrating.

Sold. Love it. Sold.

This is the book I've been waiting for. This book wrapped up a lot of questions, added more, and made me so EXCITED to read the final book in this series. Bravo, Lizzy Ford. The last two books were predictable and not very interesting. This one, the end, I actually got goosebumps. Now I want to go back and reread the first two to see if there were hints.

I am so glad I pushed through and got to this book. Give the series a try, it's interesting and heartbreaking and about a tough chick who is bent on survival.

I have read and listened to all of the other books in this series and have loved them all. I know I read this book before I listened to it but the narrator really brought the story to life. I felt like was right there with them watching them go about their lives. The twists and turns of the story really keep you on your toes wondering what is going to come next and with the narrator there's even more suspense. You're on the edge of your seat saying what's next. I can't wait to see what happens next.

3.5 I didn't like this one as much as the first two, but it still was pretty good. There wasn't quite enough action for my taste. That being said, I am still looking forward to the next book and this is a great series.

Lillian Yves does a great job narrating as usual.

I absolutely love this series! I just cant get enough, and it's a story you don't want to stop. Josie is thrown back into Viking times in this one and forced yet again to marry. And the surprises just keep coming especially the one at the end. But the thought that went into life in that time really awakens you to the hardships of the time era. I also love how Josie really embraces this era and is prepared to never leave is she can help it. Lillian does a fantastic job with the narration and bring the story to life.

Oh. My. Word. What an awesome, amazing and thrilling ride. Some answers are finally revealed but awaiting anxiously for more!

A very interesting and intriguing story. Once again, the author managers to capture my attention from start to end. An incredible feeling!

The narrator did a splendid job of giving life to these characters. A most excellent voice for the characters.
