EPISODE 84: FIRES OF WINTER by JOHANNA LINDSEY (PART I)
Hey HBs! Oh boooyyyyyy. We're coming at you with Fires of Winter by Johanna Lindsey! I'm not gonna mince words. We loathed it. I'm not even sure this thing is funny. We did a lot of laughing, but mostly out of discomfort, bafflement, and rage. Part 2 will be funny, though! This is a Viking Times book originally published in 1980 and, while a Johanna Lindsey "bodice ripper" was requested, Melody really out did herself with this particular choice. We've got Vikings, betrayal, slavery, so. much. rape., and ... arms akimbo!
CONTENT WARNING: slavery, rape, assault, other various sexual assaults, kidnapping, and more.
