Synopsis of Wolfskin
From the highly esteemed Author of the Sevenwaters Trilogy, the first in a brilliant new epic sequence. Growing up on a prosperous farm in Viking Norway, young Eyvind longs for the day when he can become one of Jarl Magnus's elite warriors, the Wolfskins. So begins a story of the far north, set at a time before written historical records began, and full of adventure, rivalry, jealousies, loyalty, love and death -- taking its characters far-distant islands, where living by one's wits can be as valuable as recourse to the sword.
