The Legend of Eydis by C.S. Johnson
(The Legend of Eydis #2)
Not all legends are born of lies …
Bjorn Kyvansson was never supposed to outlive his brother.
After his older brother Sterlig dies on the mysterious island of Eydis, it falls to Bjorn to avenge his brother. But Bjorn, along with his abusive father and his anxious mother, is content to suffer with his lot in life.
That is, until Arja Freydottir, Sterlig’s beloved, decides to go to Eydis. Bjorn reluctantly agrees to accompany her, knowing he has no right to Arja, as Sterlig’s intended bride, no matter how much he loves her himself.
But as Bjorn and Arja spend time together preparing to face the dragon of Eydis, it becomes clear that it is not a matter of honor keeping them apart, but the truth.
What I thought
I received a copy of this book from the author, for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I was so hyped for this book after reading the prequel and thought that this one was going to be great. I think I let my expectations get in the way, and I was let down by this one.
Don’t get me wrong, this was a good story, however, I may have expected too much, or it could have been the fact that I really did not like Arja at all. I thought she was a horrible person and did not deserve Bjorn at all. She treated him horribly for no apparent reason. In the prequel, she was described completely differently, so I thought I was going to really like her.
The Plot of the story was good, I just happen to be a character-driven reader. If the synopsis sounds good to you, I would suggest giving this story a try.
My Rating: /5
