Overview

Björn was raised in the Northland, a mountainous country of almost unbearable cold. In this unforgiving environment, the survivors became quick, agile, and incredibly strong. Because the land could support only a limited number of people, a select number of people were expelled to make their way in the outside world. But before they were released, they were highly trained to be mighty skilled warriors. Emotions were systematically suppressed to prevent interfering with the sometimes daunting tasks they must prepare to face.
This is the story of the Northlander, who earned success and wealth as a most honorable mercenary. Accepting only those assignments that met his self defined moral standards of honor, he agrees to protect a princess on a dangerous trip to meet her future husband, the king of a far away land. A story of adventure and honor, Björn must learn to embrace the emerging emotions he was trained to ignore and begin a new life filled with love.

Meet the Author

John E. Elias, PhD, retired Professor Emeritus in Marketing at the University of Missouri-Columbia was long known as an imaginative storyteller to his children. His children eagerly awaited each new story that he invented for their amusement on long car trips and around the fire at campsites. "Björn" was the unanimous choice from John's oral repertoire when his children insisted he publish a book for them.

Dr. Elias has four children and eight grandchildren and lives in Columbia, Missouri. This is his first published fiction.
