France, AD 799.
Northmen sacked the monastery at dawn before anyone had awakened. They burned the village and slaughtered all who stood in their path. The relics of Saint Philbert were lost, and the island was abandoned by those who once dwelled there.
Sixteen years later, a monk named Abriel who had survived the attack as a boy is sent to recover the relics to help restore the reputation and legitimacy of Saint Philbert. What he discovers on his journey changes his life forever.
Northmen had colonized the island in the absence of the monks. They hold the key to finding the relics, but they have greater plans for Abriel, plans that will take him to the North to find his destiny.

An OK first attempt
I highly recommend this book. I listen to audiobooks every day, and this was one of the best narrations I've listened to in a while.
The story was fast paced, action packed, and kept me engaged throughout.
This was my first time hearing Mark Topping. His narration is pleasing to the ear and he has a great range of different voices.
I would have listened to this book in one sitting if I had had the time.
