Seidman by James Erich is a wonderful read I think it takes a writer with special talents to be able to transport his reader to another continent another age to another civilization and make it seem real and honest and true to life This book should be rated with some of the greats in the historical genre for it s as good as any of them and better than a lot The writing was impeccable the plotting solid and the characters were as alive an any characters I ve ever read This glimpse into Viking Age Iceland was fascinating And the journey of young Kol in his uest to become a shaman for his people was well drawn and totally believable As was his love for young Thorbrand I feared throughout the book there would be no happy ending for these two young lovers but there was which allowed me to close the book at the end with a smile If you haven t read Seidman by James Erich then you should And by the way the cover art by Anne Cain was really beautiful

I have to admit that when I saw this novel and read the name I thought I was in for a very boring book But after reading the first pages I knew I had made a big mistake I judged a book by its cover Seidman stars Kol Now Kol is a little farm boy that never seemed to fit in with his family His dad found him weak and his brother hated him for being weak But one day he meets Alfdis a powerful sorceress and his life completely changesI don t want to give the story away but this novel takes place during the Viking Age So you might find the names of several persons places and things a little bit confusing What I loved about this novel was the paranormal element in it I found the goddesses gods and spirits fascinating and thrillingI absolutely loved Kol He was like the Viking Harry Potter of his era He was very shy but incredibly brave Even when death was staring him in the face he stood stall and strong I loved Thorbrand There was something in him that I loved Maybe it was the way he was so overprotected of Kol He won my heart completely and the ending was very thrilling and exciting especially the final battleI recommend this novel to anyone who is looking for a very entertaining and historical book depicting young love magic and adventure Trust me you will not be disappointed
