Book 1, Sven the ReturnedBook - 2008
"Out of the shadows of the first millennium come those who will define the next. Circa A.D. 980, an accomplished Viking named Sven returns to his family estates in Orkney. Used to lush Mediterranean palaces, exotic women and epic combat, Sven only intends to claim his inheritance before excaping this cold backwater forever. But his ruthless uncle Gorm has stolen Sven's brithright. Viewed as both an outsider and a traitor, Sven embarks on a one-man war against his uncle's organization, only to find himself drawn back into a past he'd tried so hard to leave behind" -- p.  of cover.
