Publisher Description

In 798 AD, the peaceful life of deer herder Deormund is overturned when Vikings arrive to raid the isle of Sceapig. Pursued by the marauders, he kills their chieftain and takes his sword as a trophy, unaware that there is more to the weapon than meets the eye.

Compelled by a neighbouring thegn to join his bodyguards, Deormund's prowess increases the leader's respect for him. But after the Vikings attack again, this time on Lyminge Abbey, he is forced to reassess his attitude to life.

Tasked by the Archdeacon of Canterbury to defend the island, Deormund prepares to face a fearsome foe. But what power do the inscriptions on the blade have, and why are the Vikings so driven to reclaim it?

Set in late 8th century England, The Runes Of Victory is a riveting historical adventure that captures the spirit of the chaotic medieval times.

History comes Alive

This story was well done with rhythm and flow. The characters were well developed and relatable. I liked the survival mentality but much heart and soul of the defenders. Thank you for an intriguing tale.
