The Polaris Whisper: The steel of the Norse, the faith of the Christian White Cross Followers - a path to war (Paperback)Kenneth Gregory (author)
- We can order this
Niclaus has just one aim in life - to win the Trial of Endurance to become the next leader of his village in Norway. The Trial is not without risks, and many have perished trying to complete it.
But little does he realise that Cado, leader and oracle of Newgrange, has very different plans for him; plans that involve taking on the might of the Norse lord Hakon, and travelling far from everything he knows, to Ireland and the home of the Book of Kells, to defend the Christian White Cross Followers.
Hakon's savagery knows no bounds; battle lines are forming; power beyond imagining is at stake - at the heart of it all is Niclaus. Will he have the strength to fulfil his destiny?

This is a tale of love and betrayal, of small battles and big losses, and the bonds of family and friendships in a time of profound change but mostly it is a really exciting story about vikings and bears, reindeer, monks, and a dwarf and seriously, what more could ask for! * Librarything.com *
this is a book that whips along at hair-raising pace * CultureNI.com *
This will be a favourite winter read of mine for some time. * lipsyy.wordpress.com *
