Norway, AD 785. It began with the betrayal of a lord by a king.... King Gorm puts Jarl Harald's family to the sword but makes one fatal mistake - he fails to kill Harald's youngest son, Sigurd. His kin slain, his village seized and its people taken as slaves, Sigurd wonders if the gods have forsaken him. Hunted by powerful men, he is unsure who to trust, and yet he has a small band of loyal followers at his side.

Pretty OK book. Some factual inaccuracies, and the author has a thing for chopping people's hands all the time hehe. But he got most name places right though.

Being from Norway myself, some of the narrator's pronounciations were, well, weird sounding.

But all in all enjoyable.
