The son of a Norse governor, Swein followed a life of raiding and looting which encompassed Northern Scotland, Orkney and Shetland, Ireland and the Isle of Man. He travelled as far south as Wales and the Scilly Isles and became one of the most powerful men of his time, commanding fear from the people, respect from Earls and admiration from Kings.

This book brings together all the action, double-dealing and bloodthirsty adventure surrounding Swein and his people. As an insight into the way of life 800 years ago it is fascinating; as an adventure story it must be hard to beat!
