Publisher's Summary

Summer comes to Ireland, and an uneasy peace holds at Loch Garman. The Northmen, eager to get to sea, work relentlessly on their ships, with the aid of their unlikely allies, the Irish, who are just as eager to see them go. But not everyone is willing to just let them sail away. 

Certain that God demands the heathens be punished, the one-eyed warrior turned monk Brother Becc is determined that Thorgrim and his men will not simply go free. And when another band of raiders arrives, Becc finds the excuse he needs to take action.  

Meanwhile, in the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex, murder leads to a violent struggle for the seat of ealdorman, ruler of the shire of Dorset. Desperate as each side is to tip the balance of power their way, no one imagines the upper hand might come from the direction they least expect - from the sea.

Required reading

Great adventure book and a wonderful addition to the series (cannot wait until #9 is ready). The voice talent used is perfect, boy, did audible ever do a fine job. James Nelson is in his groove. It is rhythmic, almost poetic and musical. Perfect for a Viking tale that is told over and over, and when enough generations pass....it becomes LEGEND.

And now, for a cup of ale.
