Publisher's Summary

Coming in the wake of Fin Gall, Dubh-Linn continues the story of Thorgrim Night Wolf and his band of Viking warriors as they plunder the Irish coast.

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.

As good as Bernard Cornwell

Every bit as good as the Saxon Series and similar time period and set in Ireland. This is the second in the series. I read the first, Fin Gall, enjoying it completely, and listened to this one, well performed version. Now, on to the next book of the series.

Great Fun

The first book was great too. It took a while to get into the narrator's style but I hung in there for the story. I'm going to Ireland soon and look forward to seeing Dubh-Linn

Pretty good second book in the series

Dubh-Linn is a good second book in the Norsemen saga. The story takes place in Ireland and has a good amount of action and intrigue.

The only thing that I didn't like was that the Norse all had a very strong English accent. The Irish had an Irish accent but the Norse sounded like Cockney's. If the narrator was going to use different accents for different groups why not make the Norse sound... I don't know... Norse? My grandmother was Norwegian so I found that very annoying. How hard would it have been to fake a Norse accent?

Anyway over all the story was good.

Future Classic

Can't recommend it too much. Characters developing realistically and the gripping story contains subtle truisms which this author can highlight without spelling them out. Really enjoyable book..
