The most erotic book I have ever read!

Viking Thunder is the most erotic book I have ever read and when I listened to it on Audible it was even better! The narrator does an excellent job presenting the intense and dark tale of Viking raids and fierce warriors. Elswyth is half Viking due to a previous raid by the Vikings and she knows that she is different than the other girls. Not only does she look different but she is not content with a life of female pursuits. She is visited in her dreams by Viking spirits, so when the Vikings raid the village again, she is drawn to their handsome warrior. Erik unleashes longings and lust in Elswyth that her weak husband never could. I don't want to give away too much, but the story if earthy and primal and resonates in your blood. It feels so real that you are sucked into the era and rough ways of the raiders. I hope that Emmanuelle writes a sequel soon!

Erotic seige by Vikings on Britain Town

The British coastal townships had endured many Viking invasions, leaving women raped and men slaughtered. This recounting of one such invasion, includes the attitude of one of the women, who was a result of a raid years earlier, and whose Nordic features had always segregated her from the other woman.
I enjoyed the audio rendition of this book, which greatly enhanced my appreciation of this story.

Very Old School Pillage - Great but beware

This story has a great performer, and it pulls you in. As a person who loves historical fiction, this was completely up my alley. However, this is a listener beware. It is a story about Viking raping and pillaging a town and the after effects of it.

On the other hand, this story was super interesting. The characters were dynamic and interesting, the storyline seems very real to me, and the whole thing just pulls you in and suddenly you have listened to the whole story without realizing its been 90 minutes! I would definitely suggest this audiobook to anyone who loves history and a sexy story!

Not a romance novel!!

First of all this is in only the h's point of view, you get nothing from the H. This story talks about rape as though they are discussing what they ate for breakfast! There is no relationship building between the H & h, but that doesn't seem to be that big a deal since when she decides to go with him he says he will give his children his name and inheritance and that he has bedded many women and will bed many more!! WTF?? Thankfully this was short because that's the only reason I finished it. I plan to return this and see no reason to continue the series.

I really like this audio

My second (short) read/listen from author Emmanuelle de Maupassant, although I own a number of her works it was the audio that enticed me to read this one since I own both the Kindle and the Audible editions. As much as I don't care for short stories, I really liked this one. It takes something special to write a short story and in this, my second read from this author it all comes together. The only way it could be better would be to expand to a longer story and since it serves as an intro to a series it works. The accent of the narrator adds to the listening enjoyment.

Dark story

Narrator does a good job. The story doesn't leave much to the imagination but it is not for the faint, like myself. Definitely too vicious to be considered as in anyway romantic. The author is upfront with the synopsis but most of the time, I don't read those right before reading/listening because I prefer to be surprised.

Quick and Hot

Need a fast story that doesn't hold back? This is the one for you. No tip toeing around romance no empty promises of happily ever after monogamous life. No holding back due to not being ladylike and doing what we all want at some point and that is to Enjoy The Ride! The narrator did and amazing job at bring this short story to life. #audiobookobsessionreviewer

So true to the times!

Viking Thunder is an immensely vivid and raw account of the way of life and behaviors of the original marauders known as the Vikings. Emmanuelle de Maupassant takes us back into those times, not mincing words in the descriptions of the barbaric murders, rapes and abusive men. Until you suspend the unreality of how this doesn't fit into our world, it's merely another tale of torture in the hands of the Nordic pillagers. It's true to the times and to the humanity. The story is told through the eyes of Elswyth who has the strength of character to stand up for herself, even in the presence of the Viking leader himself, Eirik. As he takes her as his own, will she be able to show him who she really is? This is a marvelous, earthy and emotional story of the inherent violence and philistine lust of the Vikings. Emma Parry does one of the best jobs of narrating I've ever heard. The timbre of her voice, its range and that accent of hers make it just about perfect!

Wow

Wow! This book contains some serious caveman behaviour, or should I say Viking behaviour. Nothing held back at all. It’s quite refreshing as it doesn’t become soft around the edges.

Viking Thunder

Elswyth never feels as though she has fit in with her clan. When the Vikings invade her village she realizes she is part Viking. Her mother was raped and left by a Viking. And these Vikings are no different they have killed her husband and are raping the women. She stands up to them and ends up catching the attention of a special man. The narration is nice.

Wonderfully Dark!

Viking Thunder is a brilliantly written dark and sensual story, that'll leave you with wanting more. There are elements in the story that are quite violent and intense but expected from the period. Emma Parry did an exceptional job with the narration, particularly the harsher scenes. I'm wholly impressed by her performance.
I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Vikings

I enjoyed this story, but wish it was a little more developed and longer. I wanted more in the end the story was to short. Emma Parry did a wonderful job narrating made this book even better.

Almost Animalistic

Very well written and detailed. I thought it was very representative of the Vikings and how they would conquer and plunder villages. However, this is a snippet of the aftermath and celebration. This author turned up the heat in this short listen as Erik claims Elyswyth as his own and she surrenders to him. Quick listen that is super hot, but it ends abruptly and leaves us wanting more.

The narration was great. I enjoyed listening to the narrators voice and I feel like her accent added a feeling of authenticity to the time and setting of this short story.

Liked the narrator

This was a very short viking novella that was well-written and detailed as the author did a great job making you feel like you were back in the days of the Vikings. The story, told from the female's POV after the viking raid their village was very steamy however I did not really care for the story.
The audiobook was narrated by Emma Parry. She did a great job with the characters and brought the story to life. She was a good choice for this role.

Viking short

It was okay, a bit short but a typical Viking book. The end was just advertising for other books
