Publisher's Summary

This is the FoxTales edition of the book previously published by Samhain Publishing.

Other than the cover art and description, the book is the same.

Hundreds of years ago, on a wild sea coast, two bold-hearted men met in combat and love...This is the story of Caius, a Christian monk struggling to reconcile his sensual nature with his newfound faith, and of Fenrir, a ferocious Viking raider abandoned by his comrades and left for dead. When Caius takes pity on the wounded man, his brethren are horrified: what kind of wolf has Cai brought into the fold?

But only when Cai and Fen join forces can the monastery of Fara be saved from the raiders from the east. And Fara holds a secret worth guarding, a legendary amulet with the power to bind even the might of the Vikings. Fen, his heart divided between old loyalties and a new love, must make a decision which could shatter his own heart and Cai's into the bargain.

Will there ever be peace and a future for these brothers of the wild North Sea?

Never wanted it to end

Wow! An emotionally all-over-the-place story read by a perfectly-chosen narrator. I need more of this author and this narrator in my life!

This book is a gem.

This is a beautifully written and narrated story. It was my first book by this author but it won't be the last. I highly recommend it.

A classic gay novel

This is one of the best books I’ve read/listened to. It’s so well-written, and there are so many themes and depths it could easily be compared to any book found in the canon. Yes, it has love and sex between men in love, but it only adds realism and grit to an already wonderful story. Beautiful, heartbreaking, and uplifting. I can easily see this becoming a movie. Bravo!

FANTASTIC STORY!

Harper Fox has done her research and every detail of this story rings true. Hamish Long is the perfect narrator for this story. He is one of the best narrators I've ever listened to. The action, the setting, the characters, even the sex scenes are vivid and not too over the top in terms of believability. I have listened to a number of Fox's books and so far this is by far her best effort yet.

A must for any Harper Fox Fan!!

I can't stop crying!
Harper Fox is a master storyteller. She weaves words to take you to this ancient time on the North Shore where the old ways clashes with the budding of Christianity. And where enemies become life mates in every heart rendering way.
Hamish Long's spectular acting of each and every character made every word magical.

Cai and Fen, Captivating

Harper Rocks, I can't say that enough. The books are so deep and thoughtful without any pretense. THIS book and Seven Summer Nights will transport you to another place and time without any feeling of the falseness. Research has been done - and the storytelling is spot on. I absolutely was enthralled and captivated by these two books and felt as if I was in the 600's with Cai and Fen. There is so much to both of these books it is better to say little. If you have no love for history, you won't like these books. They have been embedded with the atmosphere of the times and written primarily with Love in mind. Harper Accomplishes that in spades. I found it hard to quit listening - and look forward with eagerness to any work that Harper brings to the table! Both of these were stories of beautiful couples with the endings anything but predictable! Thank you for these stories!

A powerful story, a wonderful audio edition.

This story is powerful, in history, in folklore, in theology, in human condition, in love. I'm so glad Brothers of the Wild North Sea was released in audio version. I had not read it in a long while and it was like being new again for me. Harper Fox is the cream of the crop in this genre. I hope she writes many treasures for us to enjoy for many years to come!

Beautiful & Captivating

This was so worth the wait. I wanted to read this story but when Harper Fox announced that it was going to be released on Audio I decided to wait. The story was fantastic, the world building and detail like no other. I could feel the atmosphere listening to the words. Harper Fox had me spellbound, I could not get enough of the love between Caí & Fen. I can’t imagine the research that went into this book, its a special story everything about it- this review is not getting access how wonderful this book really is. The Narration was perfect, the performance only made this book a more wonderful experience.

Beautiful narration of a beautiful story

I loved this book when I read it and the narrator did a wonderful job bringing Caius and Fenrir to life. I loved the voices he chose for them. I don't usually go for historical books but this is Harper Fox and all of her work is amazing so she is an automatic one click for me.

Great narration from Hamish, really good story....

This was very well done, and as much as I can see the narrator credited with the narration is Hamish Long, he is also known to me as Rusty Coles, the narrator of Harper's A Midwinter Prince and remarkably enough, was also known as Joe Jameson back in 2014 when he narrated The Charioteer by Mary Renault, which is up next in my audio library. Hamish [Rusty/Joe]'s speech surprised me in this one though; he's really very good at accents, but it was the way he said common or garden English words that annoyed me sometimes....'other' was uvver, 'brother' was bruvver, 'the' was frequently vuh. This was quite surprising as I don't remember any of those problems with A Midwinter Prince or it's sequel The Lost Prince...anyhoo, none of it was sufficient to actually put me off listening and I'm glad I did as it brought back good memories of a great buddy read here on Goodreads in 2015 and reinforced once again what a sublime author Harper Fox is....

Not her best.

After listening to two other good books from Harper Fox I did expect this one to be as good. I was disappointed and I didn't finish after getting over half way. I found the story too much like a formulae "Mills and Boon".
