Overview

In 9th century Denmark, a child born to a slave is also a slave, and the property of his mother's master. Halfdan, the son of an Irish noblewoman and the Danish chieftain who captured and enslaved her, has grown up a slave in his own father's household. But the Norns, the weavers of the fates of all men, have different plans for him--although rarely do they give a gift without exacting a price. A cruel twist of fate both frees Halfdan and robs him of the mother he loves, setting him upon the path to a new destiny. But a brutal act of treachery and murder upends Halfdan's new life, sending him on the run with ruthless hunters hot on his trail.

The Strongbow Saga, an epic tale of one man's unstoppable quest for justice and vengeance told across five volumes (the fifth and final installment to be released in 2016), follows Halfdan's quest for justice and vengeance in a vividly drawn story which immerses the reader in the Viking world, and carries them from the Scandinavian homelands to France, Russia, England, and Ireland, through dangerous journeys and fierce battles, through love lost and found.

The story's setting is not the Viking world you might think you know. The result of almost twenty years of in-depth research, The Strongbow Saga not only weaves a fast-paced story filled with action and emotion, but also paints a detailed and historically accurate picture of the Vikings, revealing a highly developed culture in which honor was valued more than life itself, a society which was based on a strong belief in the sanctity of the law and the right to individual freedom, which had an impact on western history and culture which is seldom understood or appreciated today.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Halfdon was a slave in 9th century Denmark until his mother agreed to accompany his father, the chieftain, to Valhalla, thereby buying the 14-year-old his freedom and thrusting him towards a Viking warrior's life, one with new dangers and new enemies. In this first of a planned series called "The Strongbow Saga," Halfdon learns warrior skills from his admired half-brother, Harald. When Toke, their treacherous stepbrother, kills Harald and all the inhabitants of the small estate Halfdon has inherited, Halfdon escapes into the woods, and finally makes his way to the seacoast where he plans to join a ship and go a-Viking, make something of himself, and finding allies in his campaign for revenge. Convincing details of Halfdon's ninth century world are believably woven into the fast-paced action. The boy proves to be adept at both woodcraft and combat, surprised and not entirely pleased to hear himself described as "a rare killer," and fairly treating those with whom he has no real quarrel. Teachers who hope to use this to supplement classroom study of the Vikings should be warned that some of the battle scenes are quite gruesome. Middle school readers accustomed to this level of violence in even more graphic forms will probably be surprised to realize that what they are reading is not fantasy but historical fiction. The author offers background information about Viking life and times on his Web site, www.strongbowsaga.com, whose expository text will be much less appealing than this exciting and sure-to-be-continued adventure. 2006, HarperCollins, Ages 12 to 18.
