A discarded child Fated to become a powerful Jarl - here is the story of Sidroc.
Fate guides the path of his father, Hrald, to his meeting with the woman whose son would help change the face of 9th century Angle-land.

Their young uncle, Yrling, knows success as a raider in far-off Angle-land, and trains his nephews in the ways of the warrior. Ahead of them is the perilous crossing of the North Sea, which stands between them and the plunder they seek. Once on the great island of Angle-land, hard fighting awaits, through which Sidroc rises to second in command in the war-band headed by Yrling. Then, at their captured Saxon stronghold, comes the young woman for whom Sidroc will one day change his life...
Dovetailing into Book One of The Circle of Ceridwen Saga, Sidroc the Dane a book to be savoured at any point on the journey.

I read this book in the order they were released, knowing it was a prequel. I was worried that it would take something away from it, but I believe it made it even better.
Awesome story and writing
Engrossing story-the entire series is my favorite of all time!
