Free Book Friday: King of the North giveaway
To celebrate the launch of my epic new Viking novel, King of the North, I am giving away a free signed copy to the first person who can convince me they deserve it. (This only applies to people in the UK – it costs too much to send books abroad). So make your pitches to me using the Contact button above.
If you don’t yet know the Fire Born series, you should probably start with The Last Berserker (Fire Born 1) but you don’t have to. You can read King of the North as a standalone novel too. Below is the blurb from the back of the book. If it appeals, drop me a line via the Contact button, and say why you need a copy.
A clash of crowns pits brother against sister in the battle for ultimate power
An ambitious king
Spring, AD 777. Sigurd Hring, new King of the Svear, is summoning all the greatest warriors of the North to his banner, promising them riches and glory. He invites Bjarki Bloodhand, the famous berserkr who can summon the fury of a wild bear in battle, to swear an oath of fealty to him. But Bjarki has already sailed away to rescue a beautiful Saxon princess.
A reluctant shield maiden
Tor Hildarsdottir, sister of Bjarki, now oath-bound to a powerful Svealand jarl, finds herself unwillingly enrolled in Sigurd’s mighty army. When Sigurd Hring arrogantly rejects the overlordship of Siegfried, King of the Dane-Mark, red war is inevitable.
The battle to end all battles
The two sides agree to meet on the field of honour at Norrkoping on the Svealand border. But Bjarki has sworn an oath to Siegfried and joined his Danish host, while Tor must fight for her lord and homeland. So the siblings will face each other over the shield-rims in a battle to end all battles to decide who shall be . . . King of the North.
