This story remains and continues to be superb. The art is excellent and is a bar above anything else I've seen coming from manga. Volume 3 of the saga concentrates heavily on the historical aspects of the story. Continuing on the Danish invasion of Britain; the two rival commanders Askeladd and Thorkell battle the English and each other continuously throughout the book, while they both want to be the ones with Prince Canute in their hands, though for different reasons. In this volume Thorfinn's quest for vengeance against his father plays a smaller role and stays more in the background while the character of Prince Canute shines as he evolves. The Prince must deal with a devastating incident that can either make or break him. We watch as the, thus far, quiet soft spoken boy, takes on the character of a King's son, fit to be heir. This is an absolutely brilliant manga with a compelling story. I've not read anything like this before and can't wait for the next volume.
