    In this second volume of Tim Severin's Viking trilogy Sworn Brot

    In this second volume of Tim Severin's Viking trilogy Sworn Brother, Thorgils moves from boyhood to manhood. Along the way he returns to his home in Iceland, meets several compelling characters and takes part in several exciting action scenes.

    Sworn Brother is a good read with more action than Odin's Child.
