A peace that must be defended. A vow that must be broken.
It is the final decade of the ninth century. The Peace between Wessex and the Danes long-settled in the Danelaw erodes. A new onslaught of Danes attacks Angle-land, trying once and for all to destroy ælfred. Ceric of Kilton, now a young man, travels across Kingdoms to visit his friend, Hrald of Four Stones - and to see Ashild, whom he desires for his wife. But renewed hostilities threaten Ceric's hopes for deeper ties between strongholds.
And hundreds of leagues away on the Baltic island of Gotland, Hrald's father, Sidroc the Dane, must defy his Gods. The revered Hammer of Thor. The sacred Cross of the Christians. And the conflict that pits two beliefs, two great war-chiefs, and three young people against each other. A new generation beckons you....

Slow start, becomes good
The first 2 hours or so I was catching up with the names and history of the characters.
After a time I began re-relating to them and following the storyline which was entertaining and kind of predictable.
Good nonetheless and wish another was available now so I wouldnt have to go thru rhis again

Heavy is the heart
I will miss all the characters so much . It was a great ending but it was an ending. I thought this book the very best of the saga.
