Viking Thunder

It was very difficult to listen to this book. This book called Viking Thunder. The Viking’s have raided a small village. They have pillaged and robbed and injured, killed and raped . Elswyth’s husband was murdered by this band of warriors. But she did not grieve him as she had no love for him. Eirik was the leader of this gang. He was big and strong and very handsome. The more you listen the more you want to. You get involved with the characters.

Viking Thunder

Elswyth never feels as though she has fit in with her clan. When the Vikings invade her village she realizes she is part Viking. Her mother was raped and left by a Viking. And these Vikings are no different they have killed her husband and are raping the women. She stands up to them and ends up catching the attention of a special man. The narration is nice.

Wonderfully Dark!

Viking Thunder is a brilliantly written dark and sensual story, that'll leave you with wanting more. There are elements in the story that are quite violent and intense but expected from the period. Emma Parry did an exceptional job with the narration, particularly the harsher scenes. I'm wholly impressed by her performance.

Vikings

I enjoyed this story, but wish it was a little more developed and longer. I wanted more in the end the story was to short. Emma Parry did a wonderful job narrating made this book even better.

Almost Animalistic

Very well written and detailed. I thought it was very representative of the Vikings and how they would conquer and plunder villages. However, this is a snippet of the aftermath and celebration. This author turned up the heat in this short listen as Erik claims Elyswyth as his own and she surrenders to him. Quick listen that is super hot, but it ends abruptly and leaves us wanting more.

The narration was great. I enjoyed listening to the narrators voice and I feel like her accent added a feeling of authenticity to the time and setting of this short story.

The most erotic book I have ever read!

Viking Thunder is the most erotic book I have ever read and when I listened to it on Audible it was even better! The narrator does an excellent job presenting the intense and dark tale of Viking raids and fierce warriors. Elswyth is half Viking due to a previous raid by the Vikings and she knows that she is different than the other girls. Not only does she look different but she is not content with a life of female pursuits. She is visited in her dreams by Viking spirits, so when the Vikings raid the village again, she is drawn to their handsome warrior. Erik unleashes longings and lust in Elswyth that her weak husband never could. I don't want to give away too much, but the story if earthy and primal and resonates in your blood. It feels so real that you are sucked into the era and rough ways of the raiders. I hope that Emmanuelle writes a sequel soon!

She was looking for an escape from her life.

The British coastal townships had endured many Viking invasions, leaving women raped and men slaughtered. This recounting of one such invasion, includes the attitude of one of the women, who was a result of a raid years earlier, and whose Nordic features had always segregated her from the other woman.
I enjoyed the audio rendition of this book, which greatly enhanced my appreciation of this story.

Very Old School Pillage - Great but beware

This story has a great performer, and it pulls you in. As a person who loves historical fiction, this was completely up my alley. However, this is a listener beware. It is a story about Viking raping and pillaging a town and the after effects of it.

On the other hand, this story was super interesting. The characters were dynamic and interesting, the storyline seems very real to me, and the whole thing just pulls you in and suddenly you have listened to the whole story without realizing its been 90 minutes! I would definitely suggest this audiobook to anyone who loves history and a sexy story!

Not a romance novel!!

First of all this is in only the h's point of view, you get nothing from the H. This story talks about rape as though they are discussing what they ate for breakfast! There is no relationship building between the H & h, but that doesn't seem to be that big a deal since when she decides to go with him he says he will give his children his name and inheritance and that he has bedded many women and will bed many more!! WTF?? Thankfully this was short because that's the only reason I finished it. I plan to return this and see no reason to continue the series.

I really like this audio

My second (short) read/listen from author Emmanuelle de Maupassant, although I own a number of her works it was the audio that enticed me to read this one since I own both the Kindle and the Audible editions. As much as I don't care for short stories, I really liked this one. It takes something special to write a short story and in this, my second read from this author it all comes together. The only way it could be better would be to expand to a longer story and since it serves as an intro to a series it works. The accent of the narrator adds to the listening enjoyment.

Poor excuse for a story. Do not waste your money

Very short audiobook. Not worth the price. Poor storyline and character development. This was a waste of a good credit.

Viking Thunder

This story is a quick listen and an interesting introduction into this world. Elswyth is a woman who grew up as an outsider and unhappy, even after she was wed to the chieftain of her tribe she was not loved or treated well. When the Vikings raid their village Elswyth is confronted with a strong mixture of emotions and she has no idea what to do. Eirik calls to something inside Elswyth and she must make a choice to chose love or to chose safety. Their story is hot and just beginning in this book. I enjoyed the plot line and would have liked a bit more depth of the characters. Narrator Emma Parry does a nice job of keeping the narrative flowing and the listener engaged.

Viking Thunder

A steamy listen that’s a bit on the dark side.

A Viking raid results in the death of Elswyth’s husband. As she never really fit in, this series of events set her on the path of discovering what she really wants or needs.

The stage has been set, and I look forward to seeing where this series, written by Emmanuelle de Maupassant and narrated by Emma Parry, goes.
