Publisher's Summary

Eleventh-century Iceland. One night in the darkness of winter, two friends set out on an adventure but end up killing a man. Kjaran, a travelling poet who trades songs for food and shelter, and Gunnar, a feared warrior, must make a choice: conceal the deed or confess to the crime and pay the blood price to the family. But their decision leads to a brutal feud: one man is outlawed, free to be killed by anyone without consequence, the other remorselessly hunted by the dead man's kin. 

Set in a world of ice and snow, it is an epic story of exile and revenge, of duels and betrayals and two friends struggling to survive in a desolate landscape, where honour is the only code that men abide by.

Fantastic!

Performance was perfect. This book is like poetry and the performance complimented that perfectly.

The story is wonderful. The life of the main character in Iceland circa 1000AD is incredible and engaging.

Gripping to the last!

This is a great book to listen to, set as it is beside a fire somewhere in Iceland....
