For Tor and Skald this is their first viking raid, their minds full of thoughts of honor and glory. What awaits them are beasts from their nightmares -- huge, hirsute and fanged, the Alma will not suffer intruders in their domain.

When the Vikings slaughter a female Alma they soon find themselves in the middle of a bloody revenge. Soon the young Norsemen must stand up and be counted, for their destinies await them high in the mountains, where the beasts make their lair.

The narrative crashes over you like a tidal wave, punches you like a mailed fist and carries you along with joyful, gory abandon. This book is meant to be consumed with gusto. --Innsmouth Free Press
