Read full description of the books:In A.D. 922 Ibn Fadlan, the representative of the ruler of Bagdad, City of Peace, crosses the Caspian Sea and journeys up the valley of the Volga on a mission to the King of Saqaliba. Before he arrives, he meets with Buliwyf, a powerful Viking chieftain who is summoned by his besieged relatives to the North. Buliwyf must return to Scandinavia and save his countrymen and family from the monsters of the mist.
Eaters of the Dead is a stunning adventure in the tradition of Beowulf, taking the reader to a mysterious land where the day's length does not equal the night's... where after sunset the sky burns in streaks of colour... where Buliwyf and his band of brothers must lock in mortal combat with the dark, hairy brutes who threaten to empty the land.
