Unlikeable Protagonist

Viking Bay  - M.A. Lawson

I received this book in a Goodreads Giveaway.


I enjoyed the book. It was a quick read and hard to put down. However, I did not care for the protagonist. She was a tough woman who was hard to relate to. She killed without qualms or remorse. Near the end of the book, I began to detest her because she didn't know when to stop punishing someone. She deliberately ransacked a house and I saw no reason for this vindictiveness.


I did not care for the constant crude language of the characters and the neglect that Kay Hamilton showed her daughter.


I doubt if I would read another book in this series. I deducted one star for the unlikeable protagonist and 1/2 star for the unnecessary foul language, leaving a rating of 3 1/2 stars (Booklikes.)
