Book Cover

     Jarl Erik Bloodaxe’s ships have been sinking at an alarming rate. No one knows why, but all signs point to Hakon and his crusaders in their never-ending battle to destroy the Norse way of life and enslave the world to the tyranny of the White God’s church. Can the party discover the cause of the lost ships, or will they succumb to crusaders, dangerous wild beasts, or a lonely death at sea? Perhaps they will escape alive, or perhaps Valhalla will gain yet more swords for the end of days.
