    Description

    "An impressive and intricate novel that’s rich in character and full of action." (Kirkus Reviews

    A Booklife Editor's Pick: "Fox (the Grace Coffin series) enchants with his first Viking Age novel, a sweeping medieval saga that stretches across 11th-century Scandinavia... This exquisitely wrought medieval tale will appeal to fans of both fantasy and historical epics."

    In 1002 AD, a young shaman's apprentice returns home to find that Norsemen have razed her village. Hilja begins an impossible quest to redeem her tribe and must use all her courage and craft to survive.

    From the four corners of Scandinavia, Flight of the Wren weaves history with battles, magic, intrigue, and romance, sweeping the listener on a collision course with the end of an age. A broad and lavish saga that spans five novels and 30 years, we follow several threads that weave across the weft of history, filled out by the weave of mystery.

    In this first novel of the series, we witness the origins of Olav Haraldsson and the apprenticeship of Canute the Great under Thorkell. We meet the crafty Witch of Vestfold and her children, and watch as she shapes the future with her seidr magic.

    Thorkell's crew fights against vengeful Russians, as he sails to Uppsala to steal magical rune tiles for his wife, and all along, Hilja, our heroine, travels across the breadth of Scandinavia with her companion, "The Cursed Boy" in search of her lost tribe. 

    A book with a huge heart, epic battles, and young heroes coming of age at the cusp of an era.

    Slow start but great ending

    I decided to give this book a go for two reasons. I love series. And I love historical dramas where the lives of people seemingly separated by distance and culture become entangled. You never know what will happen. Buying the next book now. LOL

    COULD NOT STOP LISTENING!

    I am always on the hunt for a well written, engaging story with a powerful heroine lead. This book was captivating from the first word to the last punctuation mark. The narrator, Winter Fox, was a unique pleasure to listen to. I always love it when books are read by the author and this one did not let me down. I found myself extending my walks and deep cleaning areas of my home, just to have an excuse to keep going. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

    Brilliant Story and Narration

    I could not stop listening to this book. Hilja's journey was exciting and her character development along the way kept me captivated. I loved how each storyline fit together, and I really enjoyed the relationship between Thorkell and Canute as they sailed with the Jomsvikings. The narration is strong in delivery and gives life to each character (I especially loved the voice of Hekka). I am ready to dive into the next adventure, Voyage of the White Bear!

    Excellent

    An evocative debut narration!!

    I feel like I am transported to another time and place. I especially love the sweet humor between Hilja and Pavo.
    Seeing the Viking age through the eyes of a young woman gives a unique and wonderfully entertaining view of the era.
    This novel is an exquisite masterpiece.
    I can’t wait to read the next one.
