Absolutely gripping and compulsively readable, Booklist said this book, does what good historical fiction is supposed to do: put a face on history that is recognizable to all. And medieval expert Tom Shippey, writing for the Times Literary Supplement said, Sagas look like novels superficially, in their size and layout and plain language, but making their narratives into novels is a trick which has proved beyond most who have tried it. Janodas Saga provides a model of how to do it: pick out the hidden currents, imagine how they would seem to peripheral characters, and as with all historical novels, load the narrative with period detail drawn from the scholars. No better saga adaptation has been yet written.
