992AD — Northern Russia.
A time of darkness is upon the world - evil has fixed its roots within the blood-soaked earth, spreading like a malignant disease.
Men from the northlands - Norsemen - have brought a deeper horror to this place, an immortal being named Ragnar, responsible for enslaving the motherland's people behind walls and battlements. Holding them with intentions of unspeakable purpose.
A small band of warriors are all that stands between the fate of these enslaved people and their captors.
One will lead the warriors into battle.
This is her story . . .
The story is set in Northern Russia; Vikings have invaded and enslaved its natives. A small band of warriors intends to reclaim the lands and kill the Viking leader who is shrouded in mystery and said to be immortal. The war band, led by the Chieftain seeks council from two outsiders, Anna and Jonus. Can the Chieftain trust the two mysterious warriors or do they have their own hidden agendas?
Anna, along with two other warriors, one being the Chieftains son, Nikita must infiltrate the impenetrable keep, helping set into motion the downfall of Ragnar and freeing the motherland’s people from slavery.
The characters; although not much is said about them in the beginning, by the end you will be rooting for their victory. Brilliantly written, the author captivates the reader’s imagination through vivid descriptions of battle, gore and violence. A story that I couldn’t put down, entertained me for just over an hour and left me wanting more. I would recommend this to readers who like fantasy, action and bloodshed.
