Praise for The Ship in the Hill:

The Ship in the Hill reminds me of Tolkien’s writing in the best possible ways: high adventure in the style of the old northern sagas. This super book has everything -- love, kidnapping, betrayal, revenge, adventure, heroic journeys. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it.” —Staff pick by Amanda MacNaughton, Paulina Springs Bookstore, Sisters, Oregon

“A great read! As a writer of historical novels I’m always looking for great stories and to see how other authors handle the history. The Ship in the Hill is one of those great ones! I loved how Mr. Sullivan moved back and forth between the 9th century and the early 20th century with such ease.” —Jane Kirkpatrick, author of An Absence So Great

“I teach sagas, so I can tell Sullivan has done his homework. He’s a novelist with a great knack for description, character, and dialogue. I liked it a lot, and was quick to recommend it to my students.” Jim Earl, medieval studies professor, University of Oregon
