Soveig is not your typical heroine. She is plain and forgotten, trapped with her siblings on a frozen fiord. Her strength, bravery, and compassion have made her one of my favorite characters, ever. This story is full of courage, and small kindnesses that help you believe in the goodness of people. With lots of action, suspense, and amazing Norse myths retold through Solveig's eyes this is a book to savor and an author to watch.
