9780007298556: The Prow Beast (Oathsworn)

The Oathsworn have become feared and respected throughout the Viking world. Their name goes before them and men cower in their presence, but they soon discover that fame comes at a price. While the Oathsworn revel in their newfound glory, Sterki, an old enemy with revenge in his heart, attacks their homestead—the Fjord Elk is sunk, old oar mates die, and the Oathsworn are forced to flee into the mountains. Unaccustomed to losing, the men retreat to lick their wounds. They have been entrusted with the care of Queen Sigrith, pregnant and soon to bear the heir to the crown of Sweden, and though the urge for revenge is strong, Orm's first duty is to protect the queen. He soon realizes that revenge is not the only thing on Sterki's mind; he has joined forces with Styrbjorn, nephew of King Eirik and next in line to the throne—if he can only get rid of the current heir. As the Oathsworn fight to defend themselves and their newfound celebrity and fortune, they're soon to realize that fame isn't all it's cracked up to be.

About the Author:

Robert Low is a journalist and writer who covered the wars in Vietnam, Sarajevo, Romania, and Kosovo. To satisfy his craving for action, having moved to an area rich in Viking tradition, he took up reenactment, joining The Vikings. He now spends summers fighting furiously in helmet and mail in shieldwalls all over Britain and trains hard during the winters. He lives in Scotland with his wife.

Review:

Robert Low's Oathsworn series 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, and most appealingly of all, its doomy, pagan sense of comradeship-unto-death between Orm Rurikson and his band of Viking brothers.”  William Napier, author, Attila: The Gathering of the Storm

A company of warriors, desperate battles, an enthralling read.”   Bernard Cornwell

No modern novelist knows more about the Vikings than Robert Low . . . 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 Sidebottom, author, Fire in the East
