A peace that must be defended. A vow that must be broken.
It is the final decade of the ninth century. The Peace between Wessex and the Danes long-settled in the Danelaw erodes. A new onslaught of Danes attacks Angle-land, trying once and for all to destroy ælfred. Ceric of Kilton, now a young man, travels across Kingdoms to visit his friend, Hrald of Four Stones - and to see Ashild, whom he desires for his wife. But renewed hostilities threaten Ceric's hopes for deeper ties between strongholds.
And hundreds of leagues away on the Baltic island of Gotland, Hrald's father, Sidroc the Dane, must defy his Gods. The revered Hammer of Thor. The sacred Cross of the Christians. And the conflict that pits two beliefs, two great war-chiefs, and three young people against each other. A new generation beckons you....

I enjoyed each moment of all 6 volumes and listened with rapt attention, not wanting to miss anything. some was more than I personally would have liked to heard, the sexually explicit parts and I did skip over those. The story was well presented and I feel the heart of the matter was what I enjoyed most. I actually worried for the characters at times. I loved the historical aspects, almost like I could see them happening. The narration was such that I fell asleep listening and woke up to go over it all again thank you all. if there were another, I would be excited to hear how the characters lives would continue. oh and to hear the life of someone deaf, during that time period was inspiring. very well done
Well written historical fiction that grips from book one on. I’m looking forward to book 7!!
This is an amazing and insightful Saga. Very well written and appropriate to the era... Well done, Octavia!!!
I enjoyed the series, however I feel like the story is left untold, and needs another book.
So sad this saga is over! I am so hoping it will go on. Loved Nano Nigel’s narration. Loved the story. Tell me more!!!
I'm going to have a very hard time finding another read in the interim. Octavia has outdone herself with this instalment. Nano Nagle is amazing in bringing these characters to life!
