Publisher's Summary

The Hall of Tyr: Book Four of The Circle of Ceridwen Saga It is said that every man is haunted by one mistake...

The year is 881. Ten years have passed since fifteen year old Ceridwen set out from her Priory home to make her own life. She has known love and loss, triumph and heartbreak. Yet the Circle which has moved about her is largely intact, although the counterpoint has changed, bringing with it the hope of renewed love. Ceridwen and Sidroc build their new lives together on the Baltic island of Gotland, where they are free and unknown. The bond between them, always strong even when years and wars separated them, deepens quickly into the profound and exquisite love that Sidroc had always claimed was their shared Fate.

Their new island home is a place of peace and beauty. They make fast friends of the brew-house keeper Rannveig and her deaf son, Tindr, a young man who is both an expert hunter and deeply dedicated to the service of the Goddess Freyja.

They work and plan for next year's sailing season, when they hope to send a shipment of rich goods to trade. They feel protected and safe -- until the shattering arrival of the one person they fear most in the world...

THERE WAS OUTLANDER-NOW THERE IS OCTAVIA RANDOLPH!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

For those of you who have been trying to find a story as well written as OUTLANDER, here it is!!! This series is set in the 800s and is fully described so as to put you there. Each of the characters are well-described and their personalities made known. While the books are not as long as Diana Gabaldon's OUTLANDER, they are just as historically accurate and Octavia Randolph seems to write one a year, which keeps you waiting not as long...a real plus in my opinion. There is no time travel, but gives the reader an accurate sense of how peoples of the varying nations moved from land-to-land, settling, intermingling, inter-marrying to educate the reader on where we came from... This is a high-quality, well-narrated series that, if you enjoy reading about the Danes, will keep you "in the story". It will only be a matter of time before Hollywood gets its hands on it! : )

Totally absorbed in the 9th century

Reading well-written and well-researched Historical Fiction, I get the sense that I am solidly standing in the shoulders of my ancestors, able to better appreciate my humanity, to see from whence we have come and perhaps to know where we should be heading. I have loved each of the books in this series for many reasons; the characters, especially Ceridwen, the minute details of daily life in the past, the beautiful descriptions of the natural world...they have carried me away as only great literature can.

The Hall of Try

No longer will I compare the work and writings of Octavia Nagle, stories: I, II, III, nor IIII, to that of another; such as, The Bronze Horseman, for that, Octavia Nagle, Author, works stand on their own, and quite honestly are original. Enthralling and quite enjoyable.
I am now on to the next, book V.

Another Hit for This Series

If you've enjoyed the previous three books of this series, you're bound to like this one as well. It picks up where book three left off with Ceridwen and Sidroc forming a life together and all the entanglements that were bound to come from such a development with these two. One of the best things about this series is the characters, and I really liked many of the new characters whom we were introduced to and how characters we have known since book one continued to be enticing. I also appreciated how the audience was exposed to the hardships of trying to survive in the ninth century, particularly how quickly one's fortune can change in an instant from one's health to building a business to staying alive.

Nano Nagle seems to have hit her stride with books three and four of this series. I think it's because she doesn't make the Danes sound like neanderthals anymore that does it...

I recommend this to fans of historical fiction and people who enjoy this author and/or series.

Lovely written & great narrating<br />

For my friends that know how much I love The Outlander series, this is a wonderful series also. Probably hard to actually read as there are many words that I was not familiar with. But listening to it is grand!

Only a few more of these to read (sigh)

I have enjoyed the Ceridwen books -- 4 so far, and find them addictive. They are set in the 9th Century and are full of memorable characters. I have not researched whether the settings, tools, and environments are accurate, but they certainly seem so--and I am always intrigued to learn how LOW tech societies worked. The people in Ceridwen's life, and she herself, often push the boundaries of their societal roles, but not in ways that seem unbelievable. So as a dedicated "Outlander" fan, I can recommend these to you, though in comparison, the Ceridwen books do not have actual known historical events that strongly influence the plot. Randolf writes less history and less sexual detail (the descriptions are relatively restrained), but delightful books nevertheless.

Love it, thank you Octavia.

I found this book hard to put down and learnt so much about the life in that time. The characters didn't disappoint. Very rich in many ways.
