Summary

Driven ashore on the coast of Ireland, their longships nearly wrecked by the gods who seem unwilling to let them leave, Thorgrim Night Wolf and his band of Northmen once again face a fight for their survival. Helpless without their ships, they must find some refuge in that hostile country and begin the laborious work of making the vessels seaworthy again. But for all the shipbuilding skills that Thorgrim and the others possess, there is one thing they cannot do - weave cloth to replace the sails shredded in the gale that drove them ashore. For that they must strike a bargain with the Irish, the very people who most want them dead. But no such bargain can last for long, and soon betrayal and deceit have the Northmen trapped by an enemy determined to crush them once and for all.

Brilliant

Unusually ,this excellent author of historical novels actually bothers to include a story in between the battles and bloodshed and maintains a continuing narrative within the series. As with all great books I feel bereaved by separation from the now familiar characters and I'm keen to read the next instalment !

Loved this series - need more!

I loved this book! The plot twist had me laughing sometimes, and yelling nooooo as my listened in my car. Other drivers probably thought I was crazy. I hope there are more books to come. I’m not ready to be finished with these characters!

A roaring good yarn!

Well done plot and interesting twists and turns. The characters were well developed and the author resisted making them predictable. The series seems to be pretty good and historically accurate. I particularly liked the old Norse poetry, at the beginning of each chapter. You can almost see the campfire burning and the wind whistling outside.. as the poems are chanted.
If you like a Viking stories...these are hard to beat.

seems like more of the same.

The story is a very similar plot line to other books. I became predictable to read.

Much better than Raiders Wake!

I adore this series and Nelson's ability to have so much detail and keep the reader. Raider's Wake, the previous book, was truly awful, but this was a fantastic follow up. I cannot wait for Nelson to continue and I loathe the day I have no more and must wait.

Entertained while learning

Good story about Norsemen and Irish. This is the first book of this series I have listened to. Will go back to book 1, and listen to in order, if each one is as good as this one.
