Geatland – Late Summer 517 AD
Fresh from the desperate defence of the Northern borders
of the Kingdom, Beowulf is appointed by King Hythcyn
to lead the greatest ship army in the history of his people,
carrying fire and sword to the ‘Black Heart’ of their enemies.
But all is not as it seems.
Hythcyn’s actions have thrust a flaming brand into the
delicate balance of power in the Scandinavian lands,
setting a series of events in motion which
quickly spiral out of control.
In a tale of brutal battles, love and betrayal, Beowulf and his
closest kin are swept up by the storm and scattered to the
winds. From the mountainous rollers of the North Atlantic
to the frozen forests of Swede Land and the bloody temple
at Uppsala, Beowulf and his fellow exiles prepare to confront
King Hythcyn in the final battle for Geatland.
