Publisher's Summary

With their longships storm-blown to the southern coast of Engla-land, Thorgrim Night Wolf and his men find themselves rich with plunder and safely ensconced in a priory called Christchurch. But that cannot last. Thorgrim, in a wolf dream, has seen the enemy armies closing in, and he knows that their peace will soon be at an end. The gods do not go so easy on him and his men. He has learned that through experience and hard use. Nor are the gods the only threat they face. As Nothwulf, brother of the murdered ealdorman of Dorset, and Cynewise, his sister-in-law, fight for rule of the shire, each seeks to make the raiders unwitting pawns in their game, maneuvering toward a final battle that each hopes will spell the end of the other and crush the Norse strangers who have invaded their shores.

The narrator!

This is such a good series..but plz..and I know audible has done this before..change this horrible narrator! Use Luke daniels, or r.c. bray,or ray porter,or the guy from the last kingdom series matt bates! Couldn't finish,had to go to the kindle version..but if you like slow boring same tone talking with long gaps and sudden stops, then by all means this narrator is for you!

FANDAMNTASTIC!

Absobloominlutely one of the best books in one of the best series I've read. well done, Jim Nelson, our not-so-ancient mariner! Audible has all 10 volumes of the Viking series by James L. Nelson. I've read them all once and started again on the whole series. VERY ENTERTAINING. HISTORIC. TENSE. FUNNY. Even TEARY in places . Highly recommended!

This has become my favorite book series!

Kept it exiting from start to finish! Some things are similar to the other books, some things are all new. Good thing to bring in Odd, and Halvdan Svarte!

Love this entire series!

this book is really well written along with the others of the series. the author does a great job pulling actual history into it through the use of accurate terms and represents the culture well. aside from historical accuracies the book is entertaining and delves into how not only life was during these times but also politics in an interesting manner

Lots of Pay-off from the previous book.

The previous book was very transitional and mostly setup for this book. There was a lots of Pay-off for those setups. The storyline in Vik was a great additional, and hopefully is setting up for out main characters meeting up in Vik in a few books time.
