Popular novelist Jason Born returns to The Norseman Chronicles and his ill-fated hero, Halldorr, in this fourth stunning installment. Halldorr finds himself in the Irish Sea taking his first steps toward becoming a Viking raider, leaving behind his longtime hopes for a plump wife and warm hearth. The year is 987 A.D. Newly exiled Greenlanders: Halldorr and Leif must find a home for the next thirteen years. They believe they’ve found just the location on the Isle of Man with its boisterous King Godfrey, the alluring Queen Gudruna, and the feisty Irish priest, Killian. Their king has a score to settle with Dal Riata. Soon Halldorr and his inexperienced friends are running from one legendary raid to another as King Godfrey searches for plunder in order to rebuild his diminished army. The eager king quickly turns his hunger for revenge into a thirst for a larger kingdom. Will the reaching King Godfrey find himself extended too far? Will hubris bring his meteoric rise back to earth? And will Halldorr and his band be yoked with Godfrey’s successes or his failures? Rich with thrilling battle, vivid characters, Viking wit, and grand adventure, Norseman Raider is a magnificent yarn which tells of the lengths men will go for their brethren and for power.Biographie de l'auteur :
