The final part of the Icelandic Trilogy kicks off, and takes us a few more hundred years into the future of the Hauksson clan. We pick up the story in 1260, which I think is the most recent time that this book has been set in so far, and shows us that once again, the Hauksson’s are an exceedingly dysfunctional family. Iceland is at war, but the head of the clan wants to sit out the war to make sure of the future. The son of course thinks differently and plots against his father. This is rich drama, and Wood writes it wonderfully. I think what really makes this story work is the weight of history behind it, the Head Hauksson is writing a history of the clan, and the actions of the characters we read about in the first 2 parts of the trilogy hang over every action here. Wood has managed to build an epic continuity in only 7 issues! Impressive to say the least. Danijel Zezelj takes over the art duties for this final chapter, and he does his usual excellent job, his angular style really works for a Viking milieu, it reminds me of ancient runes or something. It’s no accident that he’s the only artist along with Gianfelice to do more than one story for this series.

I'm really loving this Icelandic trilogy. I'm quite the Northlanders fan, but this story is almost as good as the story that kicked the series off in the first place. I wonder what will happen! Will the Hauksson clan collapse or strive to greater heights? Who can say!
