Horn Book Review

In a brutal ancient Nordicesque world, seventeen-year-old warrior Eelyn's brother is dead. Or so she thinks, until she finds him on the battlefield fighting for their clan's sworn enemies. Despite a somewhat formulaic plot--in which the two rival clans confront a common enemy and realize they are more alike than they are different--the visceral battles and touching family love make for an engaging historical fantasy.
