s the new thrilling action and adventure story from Tony Bradman.
Gunnar is the son of a Viking chieftain, living peacefully on the family steading- until they are raided by the Wolf Men, who raze his home to the ground. Gunnar swears an oath of vengeance against his enemy- but first he must run to save himself.
Murderous raiders, hand to hand battles to the death, a sea journey to the Land of Ice and Fire….Gunnar’s path has been foretold and, as boy becomes warrior, he finds he has a destiny greater than his own story.
Tony Bradman has pulled off a really difficult trick: Viking Boy is truly thrilling and fearsome yet also warm and principled. I admire that, and also recognise the way in which the book is steeped in a deep understanding of the Viking World.
