Silhouette of viking with sword and shield

Viking Voices

Vincent Atherton

It is the 10th century. Amleth is a warrior serving the Hiberno-Norse king Ragnald. He and his clever wife Aud are violently thrown out of Dublin, along with the rest of their group, when the Irish tribes they are enslaving revolt against them. The king and his men swear to return and regain their city, after wandering the Irish Sea and encountering enemies in Anglesey, the Isle of Man and Scotland. Amidst their adventures they fight battles and gather treasures, forming alliances and even making friends along the way. Amleth becomes indispensible to the increasingly aggressive and brutal Ragnald, his cunning and his blacksmith skills enabling him to produce his own glittering and beautiful sword.
