Library Journal Review

Driven from his northern home for crimes committed by his father, Bern Thorkellson finds his destiny across the sea, in the lands of the Angles and the Gaels, traditional enemies of his people. Set during the time of the Viking raids, the latest historical fantasy by the author of Tigana and A Song for Arbonne brings depth and texture to the ancient tales of the Norse lands. Kay's consummate storytelling and fidelity to the spirit of his subject matter make this novel a solid addition to most fantasy collections and a good selection for fans of historical fiction and Celtic or Norse legends.
