Having recovered from the wounds of battle and having won for himself a fortune, a crew, and a longship, Thorgrim Night Wolf makes ready to leave the Viking town of Dubh-linn for the long journey back to his home in Norway. But the gods have other plans, and Thorgrim and his men wash up in the small Viking longphort of Vík-ló. Thinking themselves among friends, they soon learn that the opposite is true - that Grimarr Giant, the Lord of Vík-ló, has reason to want Thorgrim and his son, Harald, dead. In a world where they cannot tell friend from foe, a world of violence at sea and on land, Thorgrim, Harald, Ornolf, Starri, and their band of Norsemen find themselves once again fighting not just for plunder but for their very survival.

The writing, story, characters & narration are phenomenal!!! Up on my awesome shelf with. Bernard Cornwell & Angus Watson, can't wait for book 4 audio to come out tomarrow!!!
Fantstic characters and a well woven tale...a joy to read. I'm anxiously anticipating the next book in the series.
James Nelson has continued the Norsman Saga with The Lord of Vik-Lo, and Shaun Grindell has shown an improved narration.
And now onto the next saga!
I did not expect the story to carry forward with the strength of description, continuity of plot, and complete closure without trite wrap ups. The writing did not disappoint. Oh, I lied. I was disappointed that it ended.
I really enjoyed the series, with one proviso. The story is entertaining but could use more interaction of a non violent type. Perhaps more of Irish history pertaining to the time in which the story is told
"Irish Sea saga"
Loved it a good and entertaining saga historicly accurate with the right feeling to it
