The ninth installment in the Halvdan the Viking series invites the reader to excitement, laughter and a great dose of history.

 

Halvdan, Meia and the monk Do have left England behind and head for Iceland. But a fire-breathing mountain has erupted! For Mr Egil, the richest man in Reykjavik, it is a disaster. This means that he cannot retrieve the sword that he has promised to his soon to be son-in-law. Without the sword, no wedding! In Mr Egil's house there is also a shaman, who immediately accuses Havdan, Meia and Do of causing the outbreak and want to sacrifice them to the gods. Will Meia and Halvdan manage to find the sword and bring it back in time for the wedding? They embark on yet another adventure with cunning and courage.

 

"Vikings, who were they? They lived a thousand years ago. That we do know. Some people say they were dirty, violent and thieving. And I’m afraid that is how it was. So if you still want to read this book, don’t forget that I have warned you." Martin Widmark
