Styrkar the warrior sails to dangerous lands in this thrilling new historical adventure from Richard Cullen. The sequel to Oath Bound, longlisted for the Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize 2022.

England, 1068: a land gripped in the iron fist of Frankish invaders. But the Conqueror does not sit easily on his fledgling throne. Rebellion is rife, and the flames of uprising have been ignited in every corner of the kingdom.

Thrown back into this crucible is Styrkar the Dane, former housecarl of the slain King Harold. Forced to travel to Ireland by his deadliest enemy, he must risk the fates of his brothers-in-arms in order to protect the one thing he loves.

So begins a journey that will take Styrkar to the royal court of Dublin, and the frigid climes of the north of England, for loyalty, love and vengeance. He will be tested, beaten and broken, but can any man keep the Red Wolf chained for long?

Reviews for Richard Cullen:

'Richard Cullen's writing is as sharp as the blade wielded by Styrkar, the series' protagonist, who cuts a bloody swathe through his Norman enemies on his quest for vengeance. Styrkar is a great heroic creation, and the Wolf of Kings series places Cullen in the top tier of historical action and adventure authors' Matthew Harffy

'Fast-paced and enthralling, the tale of Styrkar the Dane, the Red Wolf, [is] a brutal yet compelling tale, and one that gripped me from the first page to the last' Paul Fraser Collard

'A perfect example of tight, gritty, character-driven storytelling' Luke Scull, on Herald of the Storm

MEDIA REVIEWS

PRAISE FOR RICHARD CULLEN: 'Richard Cullen's writing is as sharp as the blade wielded by Styrkar, the series' protagonist, who cuts a bloody swathe through his Norman enemies on his quest for vengeance. The books are fast-paced and packed with breathless action. Styrkar is a great heroic creation, and the Wolf of Kings series places Cullen in the top tier of historical action and adventure authors' Matthew Harffy. 'Oath Bound is a terrific novel. Fast-paced and enthralling, the tale of Styrkar the Dane, the Red Wolf, charges along like a Frankish knight bearing down on a defenceless enemy. It's a brutal yet compelling tale, and one that gripped me from the first page to the last. The ending came far too quickly and I am looking forward to seeing what fate has in store for Styrkar as he heads towards an uncertain and dangerous future in the next book' Paul Fraser Collard. 'A perfect example of tight, gritty, character-driven storytelling' - Luke Scull (on Herald of the Storm)
