Fires of Winter: Viking Haardrad Family Series Book 1 von Johanna Lindsay

Johanna Lindsay is a well-known name in world of the Romance literature. I remember reading her books when I was only 15 or 16 at the beginning of the 90's. Her books were my first books in English; this is when I started staying up all night wanting to know what happens to the characters, to learn about everyday life in past centuries. But then, I can't figure out why anymore, I started thinking that I should read other books than historical Romance.
Some month ago however I started again and yesterday I remembered Johanna Lindsay. Well I am back to enjoying her stories, her description of past cultures and ... staying up all night.

Fires of Winter is the first part of the Viking Haardrad Family Series first published in 1980.
Hearts Aflame is the second part published 1987
Surrender My Love the third and last published 1994.

Lady Brenna has been raised string minded and free spirited like a man, having to accept her fathers will and marry a foreign Viking, Garrick Haardrad, to protect them from an eventual Viking attack. The day of her father's funeral Garrick father comes to get her, but not as promised as wife but as slave and to destroy her home.
Kidnapped humiliated she swears vengeance and promised herself never to belong to anyone.
Returning from a travels Garrick knew not of the woman expecting him in his chamber as his slave. Having been fooled by a woman he has become bitter and refused to love or trust again.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 sauvage ! 30 décembre 2003
Bienvenue chez les vikings ! Brenna, l'héroïne, est enlevée à sa terre natale et transportée dans un univers sauvage et sans pitié, une contrée du nord, glaciale à l'image de ses habitants. Pourtant, un feu incroyable brûle chez Garrick, son nouveau seigneur et maître. Il est dur et pourtant il finit par trouver une place dans son coeur. L'adaptation de Brenna est toutefois menacée par les moeurs et coutumes de ce pays du nord. Vient le moment où un choix capital doit être fait. Mais comment choisir entre l'homme qu'elle aime et l'enfant sur le point de naître ?
Vous passerez en revue une large palette d'émotions en lisant ce livre. Je vous le recommande.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fires of love . . . 15 août 2004
Par Amanda Carrell - Publié sur
Trained in the art of war, Brenna Carmarham vowed to never take a husband until her father made a deal with the hated Vikings in hopes of saving her home. Not long after the deal is made, her much-loved father dies, but reluctantly Brenna decides to honor her father's vow anyway and awaits her intended with trepidation. On the day of her father's funeral, the Vikings finally come, but not with a bride-groom as expected. Instead, the Vikings raid Brenna's home, kill most of her family and take her prisoner, making her the slave of the man she'd once thought to marry.

Having been spurned by a money-hungry woman, Garrick Haardrad has vowed to never love again. While he's away on a trading venture his father makes a false deal with the hated Celts to join Garrick with a Celtic lord's daughter. However, the marriage-pact is just a smoke-screen to allow the Vikings to raid the Celtic village and take revenge on the Celts for long-ago wrongdoing. And now, the woman who might have been his wife is his slave.

I first read _Fires Of Winter_ many years ago and to this day it remains one of my favorites by Ms. Lindsey. In fact, I'd have to say it's one of my favorites in the entire genre. Johanna Lindsey always delivers well-drawn and likeable characters, and Brenna and Garrick are no exception. Brenna is fiery, brave and headstrong while Garrick is stoic, courageous and stubborn. When these two first meet, sparks fly and wills clash in a battle that will leave you wanting more. And, since you will want more, it's lucky that Ms. Lindsey expanded this book into a trilogy (this one is followed by _Hearts Aflame_ and _Surrender My Love_).

One of the most fascinating aspects, for me, is the history. You're thoroughly immersed in the Viking culture. While sometimes the inclusion of historical details can weigh a book down with unnecessary information, I've always found that Ms. Lindsey incorporates history perfectly, weaving it into the story in such a way that only makes it more enjoyable. In fact, she's so good at this, that I often wish more of the history had been included.

I've noticed a few of the reviewers commenting on the brutality included in the book (the rape, pillaging, murder and abuse), but when reading this book you have to consider the time period (both when the novel was written and when the novel takes place). After doing so, I think you'll be able to see these scenes in a different light. While I am far from condoning rape or the abuse of women in any form, such was the way things were in times past. The hero *does* rape the heroine on several occasions, but as he grows to love her he grows as a person. You have to understand that Garrick, though having a Christian mother, has been raised a true Viking -- someone who is used to treating women like chattel. When looked at in that way, you come to see that it's not completely Garrick's fault that he is the way he is, he's a product of a brutal and unforgiving society. And he doesn't stay that way, he does grow into a likeable character.

All in all, _Fires Of Winter_ is a roller-coaster ride of love, passion and history. You'll be hard-pressed to put the book down, so make sure once you start you have a significant amount of time in which to finish it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of historical romances -- you won't be disappointed.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Envigorating! 14 mars 2000
Par Cindy Morton - Publié sur
Contrary to most readers' opinions, one of the main reasons that I was intrigued by Fires of Winter is because it conveys a realistic plot. When spinning a tale concerning Vikings and Norseman, Lindsey could not make characters that were all sweet and kind-hearted. This was not the reality then. The actions of Garrick and his family reflect how things actually were back then. You can't expect Lindsey to change history just because it disturbs some of her more fragile readers to hear some violence. As for the content of the story: it was breathtaking. As soon as Brenna lost her stubborn edge and Garrick let himself feel again, I was mesmerized with it. And, my God, are the sex scenes incredible!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Glorifying Rape 31 janvier 2012
Par Amy R. Nix - Publié sur
Format:Poche|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I wasn't going to write a review for this book. I read it. It held my attention. Ms. Lindsey isn't a tragically bad writer like so many in this genre. The problem with the book is that it isn't romantic. There is nothing sweet or romantic about this book, and the glorification of rape is sick. Clearly, someone was writing to the rape fantasy crowd, and from the number of 5-star reviews, I see that crowd is larger than I had imagined.

I'm not a "delicate" or "fragile" reader. I love the Starz Spartacus series. I adore the Game of Thrones books. I'm a periodic fan of fluffy romance novel sex scenes. I put forward that there is nothing prude in being affronted by a rape scene in which the woman screams and kicks and begs to be left alone only to THANK THE RAPIST when he is done for "teaching her" that sex didn't hurt.

Are you kidding me? (SPOILERS FOLLOW):

This poppycock about historical accuracy is a serious eyeroll, and the number of people defending this atrocity astounds me. The plot consists of a woman watching her entire household slaughtered before her eyes, being abducted to some former version of Norway to live as a slave among Vikings, tied up and left to half starve, defending herself repeatedly against men who wish to rape her, being actually raped multiple times by the "hero" of the story, being abandoned after half killing herself to return to him when he completely and utterly fails to rescue her from a pair of villains, and then falling in love with him after she has his baby under the terror that he might reject the baby and murder it.


That is romantic and historically accurate as hell.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Not That Great! 5 novembre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
I actually read this after reading HEARTS AFLAME. I don't know what I expected since these two were so great in their daughter's story, but I didn't expect constant feuding. When exactly did these two get along? Every day they fought, which would make for a very unhappy life. They didn't seem at all in love, either. Every story needs a little bickering, as long as no one loses sight of the fact that love is still in the air. But when an argument happens almost every time the couple converses, it makes for a very depressing story. I dreaded turning to the next page because I knew nothing happy would take place.
There wasn't one romantic love scene in the entire book! No woman, even then, would have put up with being violated over and over again. And I don't believe all men of that era were such pigs, either.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 THE WORST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ 27 février 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
If I had the ability to give this book a negative rating I would. If you are into RAPE, HUMULIATION, AND BRUTIAL VIOLENCE this book is for you, if not, run for cover if you see this book. I should have known better when the first rape scene showed up on page 5. I didn't get any farther than the first 100 pages when our "Hero" started to rape our heroin as a means of submission.
Reading this book left me with a very disturbed feeling and I would hope this review will prevent you from making the same mistake.
