Book Description

The gripping second novel in the Oathsworn series, charting the adventures of a band of Vikings looking for the return of the Rune Sword that will lead them to Attila’s Hoard

A band of brothers, known as the Oathsworn, committed only to each other and feared by many, rises again, setting sail on the wolf sea in search of vengeance and glory.

Washed up in a hostile city, battle-weary and out of luck, the Oathsworn lie waiting for their reluctant leader, the young Orm, to bring them back once more to wealth and warfare. But Orm's prized sword - the legendary Rune Serpent - is gone, stolen by the rapacious Starkad, and with it the runes writ upon the hilt that only Orm can decipher.

The Oathsworn embark on a dangerous mission to reclaim their precious sword as they pursue the elusive Starkad across the turbulent Wolf Sea. Unafraid to fight and cunning in the ways of men, they wreak violence and bloody revenge on their enemies.

Caught up in the treacherous battles in the East between the rulers of Constantinople, aided by hordes of Viking mercenaries, and the Arabs, their adventures will take them from Greece to Jerusalem, across the treacherous Wolf Sea where only the hunting hungry dare set sail.

Epic adventure broad in scope and bloody in action, The Wolf Sea is the stunning second novel in the Oathsworn series.

    Product Description


    ‘Narrated by Low with all the gritty, down-to-earth realism that breathed such life into his first novel, and shows just why historical fiction is one of today’s most rapidly-growing genres’
    Yorkshire Evening Post

    About the Author

    Robert Low has been a journalist and writer since the age of 17. He covered the wars in Vietnam, Sarajevo, Romania and Kosovo until common-sense and the concerns of his wife and daughter prevailed.

    To satisfy his craving for action, having moved to an area rich in Viking tradition, he took up re-enactment, joining The Vikings. He now spends summers fighting furiously in helmet and mail in shieldwalls all over Britain and winters training hard.

    This is his first novel. He lives in Scotland with his wife.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first. 6 Oct. 2009
    By Jamie.W
    Having not really enjoyed the first book, but caught with nothing to read, I picked up this second book of the Oathsworn series. I did not have high hopes for the book and struggled through the first half of the first chapter, I was unsure whether to continue. All I can say is that I am glad I did.

    The characters, and the banter between them, is much improved, making the whole book more believable. The plot also was far easier to follow and seemed much more involving than that of the first book. One of the great things about these books is that Low is not afraid to kill off characters. You feel so involved in the crew that when a member is killed you really do feel it and you are on the edge of your seat as you read the battle scenes (which seem more frequent and better written), hoping that nothing will happen to Fin, Kvasir, Hookeye or any of the other favourites.

    There are still a few little wrinkles here and there the fact that the vast use of words which are in either Latin, Greek or old Norse make it seem like the author is just showing off, the excessive use of the phrase "I am thinking" and the fact that I think that the Oathsworn should have stayed up in the cold vastness of their homeland are the only things which, for me, hold this book back.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A vast improvement on the first! 10 Mar. 2009
    Now this is a much better work by Low, his first novel The Whale Road had a few major teething problems, the writing wasn't as good as some of the major players in the historical fiction world. Now this novel brings the reader into the world of the Vikings and the early Medieval era, you can really get a sense of what it must be like to have lived in this time, the wars and religious turmoil of the time.

    In this novel we see Orm as captain of the remaining Othsworn, not long after his escape from the Steppes he finds himself in trouble after having the great sword of Attila stolen. This finds himself and his warriors traveling half way around the world from Greece to Antioch on to Jerusalem fighting in Greeks, Turks and slavers. Will Orm the bear slayer survive to hold the sword of Atilla or will he and his warriors be drinking in Odin's hall come battles end?

    If you like historical fiction then give this book a go, the series has a lot of promise. The third book in this series has just come out, I can wait to read it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars "In Odin's Name", This is not a bad Book! 30 Jun. 2010
    Hooray, at last we have an author who can give the likes of Bernard Cornwell and Tim Severin a run for their money. I recently read Paul Watkins Viking adventure "Thunder God" where belief was well and truly suspended to Mount Everest heights, and was not overly impressed. Well now, Low does suspend belief a bit on occasions in his dark tale, but on the whole I love his mix of gritty action based on solid historical facts. It is clear that Low has a good deep knowledge of the Vikings about whom writes so vividly. He seems to have taken a leaf out of Simon Scarrow's books by having our heroes use the colourful universal language of soldiers from time immemorial. "By Odins hairy a**" is one popular expletive that the Oathsworn like to use. But most importantly of all, Low does what a good author should do and keeps you turning the next page over.

    The story follows up from "The Whale Road", so should not be read before that book. The remnants of the Oathsworn, a disparate band of treasure seeking Vikings, are stranded in the great city of Miklagard/Constantinople. They commence an epic quest across the ocean to the middle East to recover a mythical sword stolen from Orm their deep thinking leader. It is a story worthy of the greatest sagas. On the journey to strange lands they cross many enemies both old and new. The Oathsworn are forced once more into the way of the sword, which is of course the thing they do best.

    Low's first book "The Whale Road" was an excellent tale to begin his Oathsworn series. It was a highly entertaining page turner. But in this book he goes one better and raises the bar even higher. Okay, perhaps towards the end things get a little bit silly but that is a minor criticism.

    4.0 out of 5 stars The Oathsworn Sail again 1 April 2008
    By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Rob's second release and one that really will keep you glued to the pages until the last line as the Oathsworn (Robs version of the Dirty Dozen and Wild Geese all rolled into one) take on everything that is thrown at them in their quest to rescue shipmate as well inducting others into their ranks, all to regain the blade of Atil from the thieves lead by an old enemy. Cracking, enticing and above all a rolicking adventure that takes the reader through the Great Green as if they were sailing with the Oathsworn themselves with the detail contained making the reader feel the spray of the sea upon their faces. Beautifully crafted, skilfully managed and above all a tale that will live on, many will be the amused faces in the Odinhall when they hear of this brave band of Mauraders.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Rawr! 5 May 2010
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Im so engrosed with this tale that im on my 3rd book in this series and its only been 3 weeks. ive put down Manda Scotts Boudica series twice now in favour of the next enstallment of Orm and his men. what i love most is that the main character is so real, he is not mighty, he is not a testosterone adonis thats unmatched in combat, he's just a boy and the battles he's one, Odin luck and at any moment old One Eye will cast runes to seal his fate. Nice tie up in this book from the last one with the remainder of the Oathsworn and i love all the Odin and supersticous talk. i love Big Botolf and Brother Johns latin and Sighvat's bird talk mixed in with mutterings of "Odins balls" from the gruff Finn. Love it will read them all!
