Cover reveal: introducing The Loki Sword (Fire Born 3)
The book is written, the cover has been created, the blurb finely crafted, all that is left to do is some pesky editing (actually, quite a lot of editing, tbh) and, in August 2022, The Loki Sword (Fire Born 3) will be released into the wild. This is what my third Viking adventure will look like (drum roll, please) . . .
This time my Viking heroes Bjarki Bloodhand and Tor Hildarsdottir are off on a mission into Eastern Europe to find a legendary sword once owned by the mischievous god Loki. They travel by sea, river and land and find themselves in what is now Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary in this classic story.
This is what the blurb on the back of the book says:
AD 776: Bjarki Bloodhand has finally managed to rid himself of his gandr, the She-Bear spirit that gives him the ferocity of a beast in battle. Yet losing his berserkr prowess threatens to leave him at the mercy of his old foes.
His half-sister, the shield maiden Tor Hildarsdottir, has made a powerful new enemy in the Jarl of Norrland, who has declared both to be outlaws, criminals that anyone may kill with impunity.
Valtyr Far-Traveller claims he has a solution to their problems: a long voyage to the wild Slavic lands to find a legendary sword said to belong to the Norse trickster god. But the journey will prove more perilous than anything Bjarki or Tor has attempted before.
Can all three heroes hope to survive the hunt for . . . The Loki Sword?
You can pre-order an eBook copy of The Loki Sword by clicking here. (The paperback will be available in a few weeks’ time.) And if you haven’t read the two previous novels in the Fire Born series, you can get The Last Berserker (Fire Born 1) here, and The Saxon Wolf (Fire Born 2) here. That’s all for now, folks!
Great cover really looking forward to the next adventure, the books are no longer just a story . Well done Angus.
Ah so the gandr goes. Or does she! 🐻
Looking forward to the new book, only a few months really , edits pending. Loki the trickster god is my personal favourite. Hope Bjarki finds it 🙏
No spoilers but there is a lot of gandr stuff in The Loki Sword! Hope you enjoy it in August!
