Summary:
After one of the most decisive warring campaigns in European history between Barbarians and Romance, the sheer possibility of a full-scale Roman invasion into Barbarian lands launches a lifelong recruitment process, which drives to the re-discovery of old mighty forces in the long forgotten North. The most apocalyptic pan-tribal conflict amongst central and northern European natives will ensue.

My Review
North is a fascinating book. It's mythology mixed with history mixed with culture. The story itself tackles war and conflict, but it also delves into the creation of the gods and goddesses, places and things known to those with an interest in Norse mythology. There are helpful lists of family trees, maps, and other resources readers can use to learn more and understand the story better as they read along.
While this book is considered middle-grade (for ages 7-13, I'd say), anyone who enjoys stories involving history, war, mythology, and other cultures will find North to be a unique, compelling read. 
I'm rating it 4 stars. 



Author Information

Lucas Ehrenhaus was born in Belgium. Raised in Argentina, lived in Spain for fifteen years, travelled western Africa, Scandinavia, and the north- west of South-America.
 Growing up his primary education took place at a Scottish school in the outskirts of Buenos Aires. Struggling with secondary studies he started working in a vending company as a driver. Illustration was a constant throughout this period. In Spain there were a series of odd jobs in ten years whilst experimenting with photography and graphic design; two years after the economic crisis hit Madrid, he became an In-Company English Teacher in several big companies for five years during which his passion for northern European history took over. An urge to help other people drove Lucas to travel to Scandinavia in order to go through a programme for volunteering. This took him to western Africa, north western South-America and back to Scandinavia, living mainly in Norway and in Denmark on & off. This added to a broader insight to Northern Scandinavian culture where the finishing of the book North took place. 
 He currently lives in the U.K.
