An exhilarating saga of the Vikings that conjures a
superstitious, and thrilling ninth-century world and the
birth of a kingdom—the debut installment in a historical
literary trilogy that combines the bold imagination and
sweeping narrative power of Game of Thrones,
Vikings, and Outlander.
Centuries ago, in a blood-soaked land ruled by
gods and warring men, a prophecy foretold of a high king
would come to reign over all of the north. . . .
Ragnvald Eysteinsson, the son and grandson of kings, grew
believing that he would one day take his dead father’s
as chief of his family’s lands. But, sailing home from a
raiding trip to Ireland, the young warrior is betrayed and
left for dead by men in the pay of his greedy stepfather,
Olaf. Rescued by a fisherman, Ragnvald is determined to
revenge for his stepfather’s betrayal, claim his
and the woman he loves, and rescue his beloved sister
Svanhild. Opportunity may lie with Harald of Vestfold, the
strong young Norse warrior rumored to be the prophesied
king. Ragnvald pledges his sword to King Harald, a choice
that will hold enormous consequence in the years to come.
While Ragnvald’s duty is to fight—and even die—for his
honor, Svanhild must make an advantageous marriage, though
her adventurous spirit yearns to see the world. Her
stepfather, Olaf, has arranged a husband for her—a hard
man she neither loves nor desires. When the chance to
Olaf’s cruelty comes at the hands of her brother’s arch
rival, the shrewd young woman is forced to make a
heartbreaking choice: family or freedom.
Set in a mystical and violent world defined by honor,
loyalty, deceit, passion, and courage, The Half-
King is an electrifying adventure that breathtakingly
illuminates the Viking world and the birth of Scandinavia.
