Description

<p><b>In the wild lands of Norway, Hunlaf must quell a vicious slave uprising in Matthew Harffy's latest historical adventure.</b></p><h2>A wild land. A lethal slave. A violent revolt.</h2><p><b>Northumbria, AD 794.</b></p><p>Those who rule the seas, rule the land. None know the truth of this more than the Vikings. To compete with the sea-faring, violent raiders, the king of Northumbria orders the construction of his own longships under the command of oath-sworn Norseman, Runolf.</p><p>When the Northern sea wolves attack for the second year, the king sends cleric-cum-warrior, Hunlaf, on a mission across the Whale Road to persuade the king of Rogaland into an alliance. But Runolf and Hunlaf have other plans; old scores to settle, kin to seek out, and a heretical tome to find in the wild lands of the Norse.</p><p>Their voyage takes them into the centre of a violent uprising. A slave has broken free of his captors, and, with religious fervour, he is leading his fanatical followers on a rampage – burning all in his path.</p><p><b>Hunlaf must brave the Norse wilderness, and overcome deadly foes to stop this madman. To fail would see too many die...</b></p>
