Publisher's Summary

Spring has come to Ireland, where Thorgrim Night Wolf, new-made Lord of Vík-ló, and the 300 Viking warriors under his command have suffered through a brutal winter. Despite having accomplished much during the months of cold and rain, the patience of the men has worn thin, and anger and frustration threaten to tear the ships' crews apart. But just as the men are turning on one another, a local Irish lord arrives with a proposal, a plan for Irish and Norse to join together in a raid using Ireland's rivers to float their longships far inland.

The plan, however, soon turns into a nightmare of massacre and betrayal, and Thorgrim and his band must fight both the skilled commander of the local forces as well as enemies in their own camp. It's a fight in which victory or defeat will mean the difference between riches and death.

Something gets old

People continue to screw Thorgrim over again and again. He is always one step behind and trying to catch up. And some lucky break saves his hide. It would be nice if Thorgrim began to outsmart the numerous traitorous people. Can’t he plan a battle and outsmart the enemy? Oh well, I hope it gets better in Book 4. I can’t continue unless things change a bit.

I'm hooked

It's been quite some time since I've enjoyed a series of books as much as I'm enjoying these. Mr. Nelson...Well done! Louis L'Amour would be a true fan of your work, as am I. Thank You sir for this tale. Please continue to share Thorgrim and Company's adventure.

Poor pronunciation of the books title

Great story!
But! In the first books in the series the pronunciation was very good, then has deteriorated markedly. This really detracted from the overall experience.
