In ninth century Denmark, a child born to a slave is also a slave, and the property of his mother's master. Halfdan, the son of an Irish noblewoman and the Danish chieftain who captured and enslaved her, has grown up a slave in his own father's household. But the Norns, the weavers of the fates of all men, have different plans for him - although rarely do they give a gift without exacting a price.
The Strongbow Saga is an epic tale of one man's unstoppable quest for justice and vengeance that carries him across the ninth century world of the Vikings. In Viking Warrior, Book One of the saga, a cruel twist of fate both frees Halfdan and robs him of the mother he loves, setting him upon the path to a new destiny. But a brutal act of treachery and murder upends Halfdan's new life, sending him on the run with ruthless hunters hot on his trail.

Overuse of Metaphors. To many Like this.. Like That...
Modern Terms, Language, and Slang distract from the fact that this is a Viking story. Characters go on long winded monologues.
Mistborn- Brandon Sanderson narrated by Michael Kramer
Slow narrative, rushed dialogue.
Disappointment. I liked the narrator in other work.

Great book, great performance
Though it's about a violent culture that lived over a thousand years ago, the story has universal appeal as it deals with what it means to be a person and the yearning for freedom and family. The story is very well written in simple prose with compelling characters. Though it's largely a tale about men, the women's stories also have depth and are treated with respect.
Jeff has an excellent voice for storytelling. He does justice to all the dialogue and tone changes through the narration.
My personal favorite is Derdriu .
