Island of Mann, 979AD. A man lies dying with a message he cannot take to his grave, a sworn secret that must be passed on only to Olaf Tryggvasson, kin of Harald Fairhair of the Yngling line and true prince of Norway, also known as Crowbone. When the message finally arrives, so begins a quest to discover its meaning, and for Crowbone to gain what is rightfully his: the crown of Norway. With a band of Chosen Men, Crowbone begins an unforgiving journey that will see him meet the challenges of new enemies and his suspicions of old friends.

In the fifth installment of his Oathsworn series, Robert Low is back to his full-blooded Viking best, this time visiting the harsh terrain of the North Sea coast, in a tale about one man's quest for survival and the unexpected alliances that emerge, as the very bonds that tie the Oathsworn together are put to the test.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Oathsworn series:"A company of warriors, desperate battles, an enthralling read" - Bernard Cornwell"In the Oathsworn series he has created a completely convincing and utterly compelling modern Viking Saga. The history, myth and fiction are folded seamlessly together: wonderful, unbeatable stuff" - Harry SidebottomPraise for Low:"Robert Low's. is historical writing at its best and most full-blooded, with its tremendous pacing, black comedy, a wonderfully vivid and rough-hewn prose style like runes hacked into granite." - William Napier"Gripping, written with great bravura, and dense in texture in the best traditions of the historical novel. All in all he has done something remarkable" - Allan Massie, Scotsman"A real master of historical fiction." - Ben Kane
