Halfdan is the son of an Irish princess and a Danish chieftan, but because his mother was a slave, Halfdan is also. As his father is dying, his mother makes a bargain requiring the chieftain to recognize Halfdan as his son and make him a free man. He must then learn they ways of a world that had always been closed off to him.
Viking Warrior, the first of the Strongbow Saga, is an excellent book written in a way that makes you feel as if you are there in the middle of the action. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it and will likely read the rest of the books in the series. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in Vikings or studying Viking history.
