Book Description

3 Jun 2012
Paths of the Norseman is the second volume of the vividly-detailed historical chronicles of Halldorr, an orphan whose entire desire was to lay beside both a warm hearth and a plump wife, but the fate spun by the norns took a different thread. Instead, he found himself exiled, resigned to a life of raiding, killing for plunder and survival. In his first adventure he became bodyguard to a king, brutally fighting in monumental battles such as Maldon and Swoldr which were to be handed down for centuries in skaldic verse. Now after watching so many of his countrymen slain in battle at the end of his last tale, Halldorr returns to Greenland with his adopted brother Leif to take revenge on the man who saw him wrongly exiled thirteen years ago. But returning home after so many years of killing, Halldorr finds he is a different man, so seizing upon his destiny is short-lived as he longs for journey. The new jarl of Greenland is only too happy to comply and commands Halldorr to discover new lands and new peoples, to settle in a foreign wilderness. Soon, with Helluland and Markland in his wake and Vinland under his feet, Halldorr again finds that his hopes for peace are washed away by the waves of history as two peoples separated by an ocean for eons, collide. The choice for battle or peace is not his own and he is left fighting, assuming the persona of a Berserker of yore, in events which today we find etched in the Vinland Sagas. All the while Halldorr follows the drumbeat of history, he still desires a woman to be his own. Freydis, the fiery enchantress from his youth, again bounds into his path. Will he fall under the trance of her wiles or seek the true love of Gudrid? With fantastic characters from the pages of history – such as Erik the Red, Leif Eriksson, Thorhall the Huntsman, Bjarni Herjolfsson, Freydis Eriksdottir, and Gudrid the Wide-Travelled – brought to life full of faults, wit, and duty, Paths of the Norseman is the most engaging way to bring the past to life. Read it today.

More About the Author

Jason Born is the author of The Wald Chronicles, a research-intensive set of historical novels detailing the Germanic tribesmen and their struggle against and improbable triumph over Rome. All three books in the series - The Wald, Wald Afire, & Wald Vengeance - are available now. He is also the author of The Norseman Chronicles, a scrupulously researched set of historical novels telling the story of the Viking, Halldorr, who simply desired a warm hearth and a plump wife, but found that fate gave him so much more.

Jason lives with his own plump wife and three skinny children in Ohio. By day he works as an analyst and portfolio manager for a private Registered Investment Advisory firm. After dinner and on weekends he reads voraciously and makes time to write, which has become a maniacal obsession. He is currently hard at work writing his seventh historical novel.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a great sequel 26 Aug 2013
By Elsmier
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first of this was an okay way to fill a train ride, but you'd be better off looking out the window than reading this. The characters are repetitive, although that may be argued to be realistic but then again a day in the life of a Norse village is not that interesting, even if the local native American's drop by occasionally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent story 20 Jun 2013
By Allard
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I started reading this series and was hooked after chapter one. The story is fast moving with a great lead character and the writer shows a lot of skill and shows his knowledge on life, customs and historic events during this period. I can thoroughly recommend this book and the next two instalments and will look for more from Jason Born.

1st in the series was fantastic, this starts well but becomes dull quite quickly. Not alot happens which is a shame as the 1st was quite fast paced. Main character becomes dull from boring plot choices.
