My Review: I am pretty new to this genre and it takes me a while to read through but I am completely fascinated by the story. The old maps, bellies full of beef, the fights and language used and the Kingdoms. I can lose myself in the darkness and light of the story. The Author has done a great job putting this story together. I definitely recommend it to those who are already fans of the genre.
Warrior and Protector
The start of a brand NEW series – an unputdownable fast paced adventure, filled with unforgettable characters.
Alfred the Great’s dream of a united England has been forged by his daughter Aethelfaed and grandson, King Aethelstan.
The Vikings have been expelled from York following the death of Erik Bloodaxe, and for two generations there has been peace between Saxon and Dane.
A new Viking warlord Olaf Tryggvason seeks revenge for Bloodaxe’s death and the slaughter that followed, and has set his sights on a fresh assault on England’s shores. With Skarde Wartooth they set sail for Saxon lands, hungry for glory, conquest and vengeance.
Beornoth, a brutal and battle-hardened Saxon Thegn, is called to arms to fight and protect the Saxon people from the savage Norse invaders. On a personal crusade, he joins the army of Byrthnoth, Lord of the east Saxons in a desperate fight against the bloodthirsty Vikings.
Beornoth must lay his own demons to bed, survive vicious attacks and find redemption for his tragic past.
If you like Bernard Cornwell, Simon Scarrow, Conn Iggulden, and David Gemmell you will love this epic Saxon adventure packed with battles, Vikings, and adventure.
