Red Winter The United States of Vinland #2Ger alone as new villages grow and prosper in a world of fjords valleys forests and mountains all of it claimed in the name of OdinFor over twenty years factional rivalries have remained but the Hall of Wolves and the Hall of Ravens must face a challenge that comes heralded by crying war horns Mid trilogy book kinda okThis second volume puts the lie to the series title there won't be any united states since the whole trilogy is all about the founding and starting Norse colony in the americas that might have been It's set a generation after the initial book deals mostly with the Raven Wolf opposition and introduces plot threads but as often does not resolve any leaving us waiting for the last bookThis is a trend that I tend to hate and that is trilogies that are one book then two halves of the next bookThe series remain interesting because it deals with a different culture than we're used to and a good what if? very grounded foundation I suspect the reason the original Norse outposts in Vinland failed was that they did not set up a pipeline of colonists early leaving them too fragile and collapsing at the first major problem This book makes it clear this is not going to be the case in the alternate historyPS I still wanted the United States of not the New England of Vinland
