" Ini novel seram. Bukan dari cerita fiksinya tapi dari mitologi Nordik (Norse) yang melingkupinya. Terasa nyata dan akurat. Entahlah, tapi tulisan dalam novel ini membuat saya merinding. Sugesti? kemungkinan besar, ya.Kalau dari sedikit curhat penulis sih, si penulis banyak melakukan riset. Ditambah lagi memang penulis sendiri berdarah Norwegia. Tentu tahu dongeng dan legenda dari para nenek moyang.~ Hukum persamaan itu ada, terutama ritus pengorbanan dalam setiap tradisi Nordik. " said.

" will not be reading any more of these. " said.

" Maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance, but I followed my 50 page rule and it was difficult. I didn't connect with the main character and though it was interesting reading about runes, which are my hobby, I didn't get a good feel from the book about what it was all about. " said.

" It's so dark and unlike any book I've ever read. It keeps you on your toes with lots of unknown corners that light gets thrown to a little later in the book. Sky is a very typical boy, and you kinda feel that he too is getting caught up in the book as you, the reader, are also getting whirled into this world of the Norse. " said.

" Inside his grandfather's old sea chest, Sky discovers some runestones and a journal. When his cousin, Kristin arrives, they explore the journal and the runestones combined with a ouija board and find themselves drawn into the lives of their Norse ancestors and time travel to fight a blood feud that is centuries old. " said.

"I never finished this book...
I was probably two or three chapters from the end when it was due back to the library and I just didn't care enough about it to renew or plow through the last few pages.
I guess I was just uninterested in the characters and their lives. It is apparently part of a series and I realized I wasn't going to get the questions I wanted answered until the next book or maybe the one after that. They weren't exactly keeping me up at night so I have no desire to read more of this series. I think there was just too much going on. The protagonist spirit travels to different lives and times and it's all supposed to tie into who he is and what his life is like now. I would just start getting into this new character and dilemma when he would return to the present day and his present body, which wasn't all that intriguing. His cousin has some potential to be interesting but was relatively extraneous.
I really wanted to like it as the idea appeals to me - a teenage boy learns the art of shamanic spirit travelling through his fetch and begins to learn the runes. It's appealing to a Heathen like myself but just fell flat for me.
" said.

"This is a tale of magic, horror and bloodshed. Fetch is a fantasic piece of teenage fiction and is brilliant for girls and boys who like history, like a thrill and most importantly can handle a death or two, or maybe three hehehehe. The chapters and short, sweet and full of drama, action, tension and mystery so there is no way you can stop reading until you finish it really. The plot was incredibly well thought out, the characters are not at all stereotypical, each unique and independent as teenage friends ending up on a adventure through time and around the planet. I loved the way Chris has portrayed one viking's experience of the Battle of Stamford Bridge, especially his depiction of Harald Hardrada happy to run with his men when pursued by Harold Godwineson and his army. The ending had a really big twist in it which had my fingers glued to the pages. It truly was a very big pleasure to read and I thoroughly enjoyed it and I believe anyone of any age would. It is a viking fantasy unlike any other I've read. I personally can't wait to get my hands on the sequel of this riveting trilogy." said.
