North Atlantic, 935 A.D.: A group of warriors, including an Irish jarl, an English thane, and an Irish prince, are on the run to rescue a Norwegian shieldmaiden and themselves from two ships of a Viking chieftain who are pursuing them. It is a time when the Danes and Norwegians are at war with the Irish, and nowhere seems safe for the fugitives. The chase takes them along the coasts of Ireland and the fjords of Norway. Along the way, their paths also cross with the legendary Hakon I, the third king of Norway, who is the foster son of the English King Athelstane. Will this encounter be their salvation or their ultimate downfall?
This is the seventh book in the eight-volume series „IN DARK AGES“ by Charles W. Whistler.
IN DARK AGES
The stories of the „IN DARK AGES“ series by Charles Watts Whistler take place in medieval England and span a period of over 400 years. The series consists of a total of eight volumes.
The Prince of Cornwall
War of the Saxon Kings
Wulfric the Weapon Thane
Viking of the King
The individual volumes are complete, self-contained books that can be read independently of the other volumes of the series. The overall connection of the series results from the chronological order and embedding of the events in the historical context.
Whistler places great emphasis in his books on a realistic portrayal of life in the early and high Middle Ages. The archaic style of language he uses creates an atmosphere of harshness and gloom.
Experience individual destinies, love, betrayal and struggle. Get an authentic and vivid impression of England in the dark times of the Middle Ages. And see how the Norsemen shook the world of that time.
Eight battles to the death. Eight journeys back in time, with a look at real people in a bygone era. Eight independent Viking stories that will really captivate you.
