Review: Shield-Maiden: Under the Howling Moon by Melanie Karsak

Review: Shield-Maiden: Under the Howling Moon by Melanie Karsak

I fell in love with Lagertha, a character in the History Channel’s show Vikings. The description of this book made it sound like the MC was a young Lagertha, which really appealed to me.
