‘We have the summer, Alwynn. It will have to be enough.’

Washed up alone on the Northumbrian shore, Valdar Nerison is a stranger in a foreign land. He has unfinished business in Raumerike, but first he owes his rescuer, the beautiful Lady Alwynn, a life debt.

Alwynn is wary of Valdar’s promise to protect her – after all, she has known only betrayal at the hands of men. And as summer’s end approaches Valdar must choose whether to return home and fight for his honour or to stay and fight for Alwynn’s heart…

Vikings series 1 _ Paying the Viking’s Price ___________ 09/13 ~~~( Brand Bjornson and Lady Edith ) 2 _ Return of the Viking’s Warrior _______ 05/14 ~~~( Ash Hringson and Kara Olofdottar ) 3 _ Saved by the Viking Warrior ________ 09/14 ~~~( Thrand the Destroyer and Lady Cewn ) 4 _ Taming his Viking Woman _________ 02/15 ~~~( Hrolf Eymundson and Sayrid Avildottar ) 5 _ Summer of the Viking _____________ 06/15 ~~~( Valdar Nerison and Lady Alwynn ) The stories above tend to connected by characters to each other. This story starts with the Felag having an upheaval and things changing too quickly for our main protagonist Valdar Nerison. His friends are murdered and he is only spared to navigate the boat. However, he knows that things would change for the worse for him when they get in sight of home. His sword was taken away because he refused to stab his friend who was already dead. Girmir took over the boat and killed the head of the Felag and his two cousins. It was done rather underhandedly with the two being despatched quietly and the head of the Felag, Valdar’s friend Horik was killed whilst he rested. A storm blows up and they are near Northumbria so they decide to make a sacrifice to the gods. They all got to choose stones. A boy got the stone but Valdar replaced it with his and took the place of him. He saved the boy by saying he could navigate in Valdar’s place. Girmir didn’t argue and tied him throwing him from the boat into the storm. Washed up on shore he is found by Lady Alwynn and her step daughter who were gathering sea coal for the fire. Lord Edwin who Lady Alwynn dislikes because he wanted to make her his mistress because she is a cousin to the King but Alwynn was not having it, so he made life difficult for her being the overlord of the area, has ruled that anyone from the sea must be killed straight away but Alwynn could not do such a thing. Merri her step daughter helped her remove Valdar to the cottage of her nurse Gode, who was visiting her relative. Valdar was a little out of it for a while and kissed Alwynn without knowing if he had or not. Gode came back earlier than expected and Alwynn decided to make Valdar her steward. He agreed to pay back his life debt by doing so, but just for the summer. Once the harvest was in he would return to his home. He knew he could get a ride home with a relative then. Valdar started making a difference to the land and people around him. He became more apart of them. He also dreamed about a kiss from Alwynn. Time and troubles pass for them both and they become closer. There was a sighting of a dragon ship and Valdar kept an eye on the beech for the ship he knew was manned by Girmir and his traitors. A fire at one of the farms draws Alwynn out with Merri and Gode. They encounter Girmir and his crew. Merri has gone to get Valdar but Alwynn is taken by Girmir. All happens very quickly near the end. I will not spoil the fun, of reading the end. The King and Lord Edwin make appearances along with a surprise near the very end. Everything works out but the ending was very much lacking in the details. The story itself, has many events within to hold the interest. The part at the beginning was especially interesting with the talk of their gods and sacrifices.
