The Last Berserker

Angus Donald

Bestselling author of the Outlaw Chronicles Angus Donald presents his new Viking adventure series, Fire Born, which begins with The Last Berserker. It is the tale of the epic 8th-century wars between the Christian Franks, under their king Charlemagne, and the pagan Saxons, aided by other folk of the North, who attempt to resist the might of his crusading armies.

771AD, Northern Europe.

Bjarki Bloodhand and Tor Hildarsdottir are journeying south into Saxony. Their destination is the Irminsul, the One Tree that links the Nine Worlds of the Middle-Realm. In this most holy place, they hope to learn how to summon their animal spirits so they can enter the ranks of the legendary berserkir: the elite frenzied fighters of the North.

Karolus, newly crowned King of the Franks, has a thorn in his side: the warlike Saxon tribes on his northern borders who shun the teachings of Christ, blasphemously continuing to worship their pagan gods.

The West’s greatest warlord vows to stamp out his neighbours’ superstitions and bring the light of the True Faith to the Northmen – at the point of a sword. It will fall to Bjarki, Tor and the men and women of Saxony to resist him in an epic struggle for the fate of all Europe.
