"Overall, this story is about friendship, love, loss, and redemption. The message of this book is that there is always hope....I found this story to an emotional and poignant read. I loved reading Brimhild’s journey and wished for her to find her happiness. I found the writing to be very beautiful and lyrical.
I also liked how the setting was set in the Anglo-Saxon world, and I loved how Norse mythology was incorporated into the story. Grendel’s Mother is sure to linger with you even after you have finished the last page.
I recommend this story to anyone interested in reading a different take on the classic, Beowulf
, Norse Mythology, and anyone who enjoys reading stories about a mother’s love for her son."Lauralee Jacks, History from a Woman's Perspective: A Book Blog Read More
