The British Viking

by J. Rapilliard
£8.99   paperback  Pegasus Publishers (2008)

The British Viking by J. Rapilliard Ap Thor is in search of adventure.
The son of a terse Viking blacksmith and a humble Welsh farmer's daughter, the fires of his imagination have been stoked by the tales of his Viking warrior uncle. More boy than man, he is torn between his proud Viking heritage and uncertain of the half of him that is Welsh, unsure of what that part of his identity means to him.
Respectful of his mother and happy to learn the metalworking skills of his father, he knows he is capable of so much more and when opportunity comes his way, he sets out with a true heart in search of the destiny he believes is his Viking birthright.
He discovers an instinct for leadership, a natural flare for military tactics, the capacity to love and a calm, passionate well of tolerance born of his dual-identity to draw upon. Not noble by birth but noble by deed, Ap Thor clasps with both hands the opportunity to reveal his true colours and show the courage to fight for peace in turbulent times as a coming storm ominously rumbles.
