The Line of His People by C.J. Adrien is set between 799 A.D. and 816 A.D. It begins with Abriel’s town and the nearby monastery being ransacked by northmen, a common occurrence at the time. Abriel is rescued by an order of monks who take him off the island and to a faraway monastery. However, the monastery is being persecuted by a cruel man named Hilbod. Abriel is soon forced to flee the monastery and embarks on a quest to find ancient relics that were hidden when the island fell. When he arrives back, he finds the island infested with northmen. Soon he is dragged into the northmen’s affairs and must prove himself to the man who helped hide the relics. But when the northmen sail off to war, Abriel gets more than he bargained for.
The Line of His People is a well written fantasy set in the age of Vikings. Throughout the book you will learn new and cool information about the northmen, monks and other people and groups of the time. C.J. Adrien cleverly builds on characters and writes with a unique flair. The book explores the era and helps you to imagine what it is like for Abriel as he explores the northmen’s world. The Line of His People is a book that is more geared to teen readers. I would totally recommend it to friends because it is so well written. The Line Of His People is really worth your time to read. This is the first book in a two-book series so look forward to the next one. Great book. I loved it.
