The Slayer Rune is a historical action-adventure novella with slight supernatural elements. In this first instalment in the new Viking series, the stage is set in Norway in AD 967. Young Sigurd, the chieftain's son, is in love with Yljali, a pretty, foreign thrall girl. Helgi Blackbeard, the king's captain-of-arms, has also discovered Yljali's beauty, and he wants to possess her. Helgi Blackbeard is a powerful man, but he is not the only one lusting for the girl. Harald the Chieftain, Sigurd's father, also looks in her direction.
Sigurd does not fight his battles alone. The old and mysterious Grim reveals the secrets of the runes to Sigurd, and Gisli, the captain-of-arms at Vik, has promised him a very special sword – Gisli's own blade. But when Sigurd decides to act, he sparks off a chain of events that no one is able to control.
The Slayer Rune is the first book in The Viking Series.
“Through faith, superstition, desperation and courage we follow Sigurd on the way into adulthood, and I can't wait for the next book in the saga. Would do great as a movie too!” (Linda Bekkelund, Goodreads)
