The Dwarf Did It...

Jilliand

Jilliand: A Story of Love and Freedom by Clare Gutierrez

“Bruised, bloody, and barely dressed, she knew it was over. She had no doubt the Vikings would search for her if she tried to run—especially now, with their companion lying dead. It would be dark soon, and she had no idea where she could go or hide. Jilliand knew they would come for her. The Vikings were not likely to let this go—especially it being an attack by a woman. She was defeated. Weak and shaking, she stared at the man’s body. I think tonight I die. ” ~ Back cover description copied from Goodreads

I loved this book. It was a very nice story. I loved the main character’s ability to adapt. Her will to live. For me, she never gave off the impression of being weak, waiting for someone else to save her. Jilliand was strong-willed and very capable of handling herself. I also LOVE the leading male. I will say though, he isn’t very talkative and at times the hopeless romantic in me was yelling “SPIT IT OUT ALREADY!” As if the pages of the book could hear me right? Haha. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. The only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is because sometimes the thought or point of view switched to a different character mid paragraph. That personally bugged me but it was still easy to follow. I would recommend this book to people who love historical fiction and Vikings!

I did win this book off of a Goodreads giveaway a few months ago. It was a pleasant surprise when the book arrived signed as well as having a greeting card from the author. That was like a two for one bonus!! I attached some pictures.
