Summary

If you like Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden, Simon Scarrow, David Gemmell, and Giles Kristian, you will love this epic Viking adventure, packed with battles, treachery, blood and gore.

AD 865. The fierce Vikings stormed onto Saxon soil hungry for spoils, conquest, and vengeance for the death of Ragnar Lothbrok.

Hundr, a Northman with a dog's name...a crew of battle hardened warriors...and Ivar the Boneless.

Amidst the invasion of Saxon England by the sons of Ragnar Lothbrok, Hundr joins a crew of Viking warriors under the command of Einar the Brawler. Hundr fights to forge a warriors reputation under the glare of Ivar and his equally fearsome brothers, but to do that he must battle the Saxons and treachery from within the Viking army itself...

Hundr must navigate the invasion, survive brutal attacks, and find his place in the vicious world of the Vikings in this fast paced adventure with memorable characters.

Best viking story

Well written, believable, and compelling. Hard to find any fault in it. It's straight to the point, and the narrator (who has a kind of dead-pan delivery) (for me at least) compliments that.

Amazing!!!

This story is full of thrill, very gripping and brings my imagination alive. Was very difficult to pause it as I wanted to keep listening. The blood and gore didn’t bother me, very descriptive. Very well written and kept me captivated. Would definitely recommend!!🥰

Well crafted Viking Saga

If you like your battles bloody, your characters cruel and a plot which twists and turns like the coils of Nidhogg who chews on Yiggdrasil’s roots then this is for you!
Peter Gibbons’s saga transports the reader to march alongside Ivar the Boneless and the Great Heathen Army. Occasionally he repeats back story but it is not too frequent to irritate. Nichols Jordan’s narration is nothing short of excellent. His rendition of the different characters voices superb. Off to download the next in the series!

A great introduction

I really enjoyed this first installment from Peter Gibbons. I did find the narrator let the story down and would of liked a bit more emotion in the narration from Nicholas Jordan. Certain points in the story are highly thrilling and suspenseful and the narration sounds like a weather report.

Other than that, it was an enjoyable listen.

Superb

Stunning tale expertly crafted to worm into your thought cage. Once there it grabs you and pulls you deeper into a long ago world of intrigue and blood.
Like a deep River it pulls you on slowly drowning you in its tale
BRILLIANT.

Gave it chance and I’m so glad I did

So many stories that just fail to deliver. Great series that then get made in to tv series and the author starts wringing for TV rather than in the vein the he started out in …..

I’ve been hunting for something to listen whilst driving that didn’t make me want to pull in the services and return the dull and boring story line. Took me a while but I found it!!!!!!!!!!

Action from the off and great characters !! Get cracking on the rest of series please
