nastery on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in Northumbria, England. On that fateful summer’s day, he is violently torn from one life and thrust headlong into another. Two strange dragon-headed ships appear on the beach and savage raiders swarm ashore – the first Viking attack on English soil. Fenn tries to save the Lindisfarne Gospels, a priceless manuscript, but its gold and jewel-encrusted cover is ripped from the book and taken as Viking plunder. With twenty others, Fenn is dragged across the sea to a life of cruel slavery in a harsh and foreign land; to a society that could not be more different from his own. After months of brutal existence, Fenn seizes an opportunity to escape. He retrieves the stolen cover of the Gospels and together with four other slaves including a talented and beautiful young woman, sets out on a thousand-mile journey home, pursued every step of the way by the Viking warlord. They make a deadly enemy of an outlaw, Lothar, when his brother is killed by Fenn's companion - displaying an extraordinary ability with a sword. She is revealing hidden talents which she is mysteriously reluctant to discuss. Relationships develop within the band, fueled by the shared struggle. They trek ever southward, experiencing moments of beauty and brutality, humor and terror, triumph and anguish. After a life-threatening incident, Fenn wakes alone and badly injured. With only a hazy memory of the last few days and unable to speak the language, he must strive to find his friends and resume their journey back to Lindisfarne. What lies ahead? A daring rescue. Relentless pursuit by both Vikings and outlaws. Entanglement in a merciless war between Saxons and Franks. This is Fenn’s story. A story of courage and determination in the face of incredible hardship and danger, of despair and joy, and of loyalty and love. Can Fenn fulfill his vow to return the precious manuscript cover and lead his band of fugitives home…? To LINDISFARNE.
