Young Harald and his father, Sigurd, sign up to travel with Thorkell Fairhair on his ship, The Nameless Harald s father is injured and must be left behind, but Harald voyages with Thorkell and his colorful band of Vikings, meeting with adventures and misfortunes all along the way.
This one was engaging and entertaining than I suspected it would be For a children s book, it doesn t sugarcoat Viking life and the ending is bittersweet, which is refreshing, to be honest.

Unlike the Children s Crusade, my first book by Henry Treece which told a HUGE story, this book is proud to tell a very small story This leaves a lot of room to develop the characters REALLY well They re very layered and complex, but at times, just pleasant and likeable It was really interesting to see a conversation that could go from being dark and serious to being casual and friendly.
Harald is pretty well written as the main protagonist The father son relationship felt real and you really see him admiring all these other men who act as father figures, and his journey as a character.
Another of the book s strengths is the descriptive writing I nearly always had a very clear picture in my head and the vocabulary challenged me as a reader, but not too much The Vikings having horned helmets is fairly stereotypical and historically inaccurate, but I did learn a bit about Norse culture, I get the vibe at least The book isn t all savagery and blood, but it s not swashbuckling fun It gets a good balance and talks a lot about religion, loyalty and fate.
Admittedly, I did get some of the characters confused a couple of times, forgetting who was who, despite Treece taking so much time to set them up Also, the illustrations let the book down a little Not that they weren t detailed or impressive, but sometimes an illustration would interrupt a fight scene or an emotional moment and because the characters eyes are just black, it put a bit of distance between me and the book s heroes.
Overall, Viking s Dawn is a very thoughtful and enjoyable story.
He has been where none of us will ever go He has come back to us from the belly of the sea Let s begin 2019 with a classic Two books by Henry Treece had an enormous impact on my childhood reading The Dream Time and Electra The first in its simplicity, the second in its complexity, created worlds simultaneously real and mythic Here, Treece achieves the same magic with a coming of age story about a young Viking on his first voyage across the North Sea Deceptively simple and boy s own in its presentation, Treece does not shrink from the moral ambiguity, the cultural relativity and the casual brutality of the world he explores Never content with easy answers, Treece implicitly asks over and over in this story why did men cross the North Sea, kill and steal, and dream of dying in battle Not your average adventure story.
These classic children s books did not treat children as childlike they wrote about young people, sure but they didn t talk down to the child reader, simply were moderate in language and contained no gratuitous violence and sex In short, they were excellent stories from masterful storytellers.
It was a joy to read this, a ripping yarn that galloped along with our young protagonist as he experienced his first trip a Viking I heartily recommend this short read to anyone who loves the Dark Ages or history at all.
A friend gave me this as I m interested in children s historical fiction and it was one she remembered fondly from her childhood Unfortunately I found it tedious and depressing It was difficult to keep track of the large cast of Vikings and their nicknames, much less become fond of any of the characters which was lucky, because practically everyone dies.
I just bought a new copy of this stunning book because my old one finally fell apart J loved it so much as a child I named two of my kids after its characters Luckily they still like their names.
