About this book
The Smile of the Wolf
“Smile of the Wolf bares its fangs from the first page. Like a medieval tapestry, the storytelling is rich with imagery. Reader will be lured spellbound into this lyrical and evocative Icelandic saga. It deserves huge success.” — David Gilman, author of The Master of War series
The next great read for fans of the television show Vikings; it’s >killing season in medieval Iceland where dead men rise from their graves, monsters are said to roam the hills, and two men try to avoid paying the ultimate price for murder.
TENTH-CENTURY ICELAND. On a dark mid-winter’s night, two friends kill a man.
Kjaran, a travelling poet who trades songs for food and shelter, and Gunnar, a feared warrior, must make a choice: conceal the deed or confess to the crime and pay the blood price to the family. For the right reasons, they make the wrong choice.
Their fateful decision leads to a brutal feud: one man is outlawed, free to be killed by anyone without consequence; the other remorselessly hunted by the dead man's kin.
Set in a world of ice and snow, Smile of the Wolf is an epic story of exile and revenge, of duels and betrayals, and two friends struggling to survive in a desolate landscape, where honour is the only code of law.
