Eager to return to his native Norway, Thorgrim agrees to participate in one last raid under the command of a man he does not trust. But the Northmen, he finds, are no longer simply invaders on foreign soil. They have become a part of the Irish kings' ongoing struggle for power, and, far from securing a means to return home, Thorgrim and his men are plunged into a battle for the throne of Tara - a battle that will test their strength and loyalty as none has before.

This book feels like extremely loose historical fiction that's take awhile to gain steam, but when it does, it's a great read. Shaun Grindell is the best narrator I've heard. I thought it was the author judging by how much effort was put into distinct character voices and entonation. A great road trip book. Very manly with all the Vikings and conflicts.

Present moment awareness is an essential ingredient in life if one expects to experience any degree of authentic peace and contentment. It has been acknowledged for centuries as the cornerstone of spiritual awakening in all traditions of Eastern thought. In the West, however, it is still a relatively unrecognized concept for living. The Western mind is always restless, never content with the moment.

This says it's narrated by the author, but it is not. It's narrated by a female.
