Summary

If you like Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden, Simon Scarrow, David Gemmell, and Giles Kristian, you will love this epic Viking adventure, packed with battles, treachery, blood and gore.

AD 865. The fierce Vikings stormed onto Saxon soil hungry for spoils, conquest, and vengeance for the death of Ragnar Lothbrok.

Hundr, a Northman with a dog's name...a crew of battle hardened warriors...and Ivar the Boneless.

Amidst the invasion of Saxon England by the sons of Ragnar Lothbrok, Hundr joins a crew of Viking warriors under the command of Einar the Brawler. Hundr fights to forge a warriors reputation under the glare of Ivar and his equally fearsome brothers, but to do that he must battle the Saxons and treachery from within the Viking army itself...

Hundr must navigate the invasion, survive brutal attacks, and find his place in the vicious world of the Vikings in this fast paced adventure with memorable characters.

Well crafted Viking Saga

If you like your battles bloody, your characters cruel and a plot which twists and turns like the coils of Nidhogg who chews on Yiggdrasil’s roots then this is for you!
Peter Gibbons’s saga transports the reader to march alongside Ivar the Boneless and the Great Heathen Army. Occasionally he repeats back story but it is not too frequent to irritate. Nichols Jordan’s narration is nothing short of excellent. His rendition of the different characters voices superb. Off to download the next in the series!

Fantastic but...

This was really fantastic, and was the first audiobook I completed for a while. At first I found the narrator a little flat but either he grew into it or I got got used to it, and he did a fantastic job! The characters and story were compelling. The end felt a little a rushed perhaps, but outside of that it was great! The first half especially is one of the best books I've listened to!

The BUT is that any book in a series has to be judged in the context of the series, and doing them knowing the reviews fall off a cliff due to the change in narrators at books 5 and 6 is disappointing!

Superb

Stunning tale expertly crafted to worm into your thought cage. Once there it grabs you and pulls you deeper into a long ago world of intrigue and blood.
Like a deep River it pulls you on slowly drowning you in its tale
BRILLIANT.

Best viking story

Well written, believable, and compelling. Hard to find any fault in it. It's straight to the point, and the narrator (who has a kind of dead-pan delivery) (for me at least) compliments that.
