'A masterly debut... If Bernard Cornwall and George RR Martin had a lovechild, it would look like A Mighty Dawn. I devoured it late into the night, and eagerly await the sequel.' -- Antonia Senior on A Mighty Dawn
Forged in fire. Bound by honour. Haunted by loss.
8th Century Sweden: Erlan Aurvandil, a Viking outlander, has pledged his sword to Sviggar Ivarsson, King of the Svears. But violence is stirring in the borderlands. As the fires of an ancient feud are reignited, Erlan is bound by honour and oath to stand with King Sviggar.
But, unbeknownst to the old King his daughter, Princess Lilla, has fallen under Erlan's spell. As the armies gather Erlan and Lilla must choose between their duty to Sviggar and their love for each other.
Blooded young, betrayed often, Erlan is no stranger to battle. And hidden in the shadows, there are always those determined to bring about the maelstrom of war...

A hugely impressive effort, this is a rip-roaring blockbuster brought to life in vivid detail. You can smell the smoke of the Viking hall, taste the burning desire for revenge. With Brun - there's a new heavy weight writer on the medieval block. * Justin Hill, author of Viking Fire *
At the point where history and myth blurs, Theodore Brun has crafted a thunderous epic of blood and fire, love and loss that will keep you reading deep into the night. * James Wilde, author of the Dark Age series *
A huge, finely-paced read. * Jon Wise, Weekend Sport *
A time and age that there is preciously little information about, Brun has managed to bring the early world of the Vikings to life in an authentic and inspiring manner. The tale with its characters and places is a worthy successor to any of the Icelandic Sagas. * GRIMFROST, the world's largest Viking community *
Evocative prose and the brutality of the Viking world, it's all here, woven with a deft touch into a tremendous tale. * Giles Kristian, author of Lancelot, on A Mighty Dawn *
Just when you thought the brilliant Giles Kristian had the Viking crown for good, along comes another fine contender for the throne... Engrossing, spellbinding, A Mighty Dawn is exactly that. * Jon Wise, The Weekend Sport, on A Mighty Dawn *
A masterly debut... If Bernard Cornwall and George RR Martin had a lovechild, it would look like A Mighty Dawn. I devoured it late into the night, and eagerly await the sequel. * Antonia Senior, author of The Winter Isles, on A Mighty Dawn *
Brun has a knack for describing combat... Very much in the vein of Bernard Cornwell's Warrior Chronicles, a warrior's battles are never done, at least, not whilst he still possesses the strength to swing his sword. * Bookbag on A Mighty Dawn *
[The first of a] very fine historical, fantasy series * Nudge on A Mighty Dawn *
A truly impressive debut that hints at a much larger story still left to be told. This novel has the potential to be an epic tale to rival the sagas of the ages. * The Eloquent Page on A Mighty Dawn *
Weaving together history, fantasy and myth like the Norns twining the threads of fate in A Mighty Dawn, Brun has created an excellent debut and a top quality read. * The Tattooed Book Geek on A Mighty Dawn *
