    How cultures clash with one another This episode from Vierra's life is once again separated from the previous one by a gap in time. This highlights the fact that in all kinds of ways she has been unable to move on. The exact length of the gap is unclear, but it is long enough that she has become resigned to her status as slave, in a land which is not her own. The energy generated towards the end of the last story (Fargoer 4 - The Roots of Evil) has dissipated. She is still very far from home with How cultures clash with one another This episode from Vierra's life is once again separated from the previous one by a gap in time. This highlights the fact that in all kinds of ways she has been unable to move on. The exact length of the gap is unclear, but it is long enough that she has become resigned to her status as slave, in a land which is not her own. The energy generated towards the end of the last story (Fargoer 4 - The Roots of Evil) has dissipated. She is still very far from home with no apparent means of return, and no apparent spirit to try. However, her fate will not leave her languishing like this, and a combination of circumstances propels her not only geographically northwards again, but also personally back towards recovery. Something comes across in this story of the vastness and emptiness of these northern lands and seas, and the rather extraordinary fact that people navigated across them with confidence. This episode deals much more with the lifestyle and motivations of the Vikings than it does Vierra's own people. As such, it highlights some of the conflicts and rivalries of the wider region. Alliances might be made and discarded to meet the needs of the moment, and each party has its own standards of honour and conduct, driving them towards generous or selfish acts. Travelling with Vierra along her personal road of recovery is fascinating, and in my view the story well deserves five stars. However, the translation is not as fluid as the earlier episodes. There are some places where the choice of words and phrasing tends to get in the way of the narrative. I am sure that in its native Finnish the prose would flow in the same way in all the stories, and for me (and no doubt for most readers) the opportunity to read the book at all considerably outweighs problems of translation. All in all, a convincing and compelling way for the story to continue. I read this story not as the stand-alone version but as one section of a collected edition.
