Farm boys Ottar and Ketil love to hear stories about the Great Army: the ruthless warriors ruled by pirate kings, the glory and riches won in blood-soaked
They can only dream of such adventure -- until a viking ship comes to port and the boys seize their chance to join a raiding party.
As blood-brothers, they have sworn to protect each other.
But the arrows of war threaten to pierce their loyalty, the axes to sever their friendship.
If they cannot stand strong together, their bodies may be left on the battle-field to feast the wolves.
A sweeping, dramatic story of courage and honour, set in the merciless and cut-throat Viking world.
