Hardback

Description

When the Vikings attack, a novice monk's life is changed forever in Matthew Harffy's new historical adventure.Lindisfarne, AD793. There had been portents - famine, whirlwinds, lightning from clear skies, serpents seen flying through the air.

But when the raiders came, no one was prepared. They came from the North, their dragon-prowed longships gliding out of the dawn mist as they descended on the kingdom's most sacred site. It is 8th June AD 793, and with the pillage of the monastery on Lindisfarne, the Viking Age has begun. While his fellow monks flee before the Norse onslaught, one young novice stands his ground.

He has been taught to turn the other cheek, but faced with the slaughter of his brothers and the pagan desecration of his church, forgiveness is impossible. Hunlaf soon learns that there is a time for faith and prayer ... and there is a time for swords.Praise for Matthew Harffy:'Harffy is a master of the Dark Age thriller ...
