The epic and action packed sequel to THE WHITE RAVEN, charting the adventures of Orm and his band of brothers, the Oathsworn.
The Oathsworn have become feared and respected throughout the Viking world. Their name goes before them and men cower in their presence. But fame comes at a price… While the Oathsworn revel in their new-found fame, Sterki, an old enemy with revenge in his heart, attacks their homestead - the Fjord Elk is sunk, old oarmates die and the Oathsworn are forced to flee into the mountains. Unused to losing, the Oathsworn retreat to lick their wounds. They have been entrusted with the care of Queen Sigrith, pregnant and soon to bear the heir to the crown of Sweden, and much though the urge for revenge is strong, Orm's first duty is to protect the queen. And Orm soon realises that revenge is not the only thing on Sterki's mind; has joined forces with Styrbjorn, nephew of King Eirik and next in line to the throne if he can only get rid of the current heir. As the Oathsworn fight to defend themselves and their newfound celebrity and fortune, they're soon to realise that fame isn't all it's cracked up to be…
Batten down the hatches, light the torches and grab your swords as you prepare to sail the sea’s in this, the forth offering in the Oathsworn series. Not only is the adventure along with the fame of the Oathsworn growing but Rob really does search the tales of the ancient norse to weave a thread that the Norn’s would be proud to call their own. Not only does Rob bring a great offering to the table but he adds a touch of the old David Gemmell magic into the heroics of the crew taking their own tale to greater heights. It’s sad to say that this is going to be the last offering in the Oathsworn series for a while and whilst its going to be a long wait for their next adventure the magic within will only help to swell those who seek to join Rob’s Shield Wall.
