"If narrators Will Collyer and Matt Wolf can't engage kids in history, no one can! The Vikings come to life in this spirited history, which begins in 790 and ends in 1066. Wolf's younger and livelier voice narrates the majority of the book as he recounts the stories of Ragnar Hairy Breeches, Ivan the Boneless, and Turgeis the Devil, all real people. Collyer's Nordic accent and more mature, theatrical delivery work well for delivering historical quotations and descriptive poetry. Listeners will learn about Viking weapons, war, clothing, life at sea, and Thor and Odin, the gods of war and death in this authentic history. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
