Summary

In 1035, a young 15-year-old Viking is dragged wounded from the battle. Left for dead, for the next 20 years his adventures lead him over mountains, down the length of Russia and ultimately to Constantinople and the Holy City of Jerusalem.
Drawn into political intrigue, he will be the lover of empresses, the murderer of an emperor; he will hold the balance of power in the Byzantine Empire in his hands and then give it all up for a Russian princess and the chance to return home and lead his own people. There, he must fight the demons of his past, his family and his countrymen in a long and bitter war for revenge and power.
Told in his own voice, this is the astonishing true story of the most famous warrior in all Christendom: Harald Hardrada, the last Viking.

Absolutely gripping in word and voice

The best telling of Harald Hardrada's story by a superb author and narrated by a brilliant voice of Jonathan McGarrity. The northern accent adds such depth to the character and helps define his scandinavian background as well as reflecting the danish roots of the North.

Viking Fire

A story, based on facts, which keeps the reader coming back for more. A mine of information.
