Publisher's Summary

Maroboodus lost Saxa. Hulderic, his father, lost their lands and abandoned his weak-willed brother to fight their loss-maddened uncle alone. The Boat Lord, their powerful relative, was after their heads, and the Draupnir's Spawn, their famous family ring, is still what the man wants, having lost it decades past.

They were fugitives with their former foes, the Saxons. And the Saxons had problems of their own, and the Goths would be the solution for some of them.

Hulderic's and Maroboodus's problems of trust, avoiding and defeating the foes who pursue them, and finding their uncertain path forward would only be solved if Maroboodus learns to control the Bear in himself, the destructive part of his warrior's soul, and to work under his father's banner.

And yet, Maroboodus has his own goals, as he hopes to raise the Bear Banner to carve his own kingdom in the north, and his father is not part of those plans.

Great Story!, Great Narration Never Disappointed

Would you consider the audio edition of The Bear Banner to be better than the print version?

They are both great experiences. I tend to prefer the audio experience and interpretation. But that is just my opinion.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Maraboodus is the central character that captures your attention. In terms of the "bad guys", Skallagrim stands out.

Have you listened to any of Clay Lomakayu’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Never disappointed. He lives the books he narrates. He doesn't just read them.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Well, I felt for Maraboodus and what he had to endure both physically and emotionally. But he prevailed and so you finish with success.

This takes it's time and envelops one.

This books keeps the adventure and mystery going from previous book and even though I listened to the books following before this one, I never for one moment knew the exact outcome.

Truly masterful

Mr. Longward takes you back in time to experience the harsh realities of pre-Roman Germania. Can't wait for the next installment.
