Overview

Viking Blood 2: Secrets by Marianne Slot, Pia Pape

Second book in the series "Viking Blood".

"There, right in front of him it lies shining in the sand!
It is a large, nugget of amber, smoothed by sand and stones in the sea, and golden like the sun. In a few hours, the tide will once again cover the tiny beach, and take back the glowing treasure.
Hauge bends down, picking up the amber. He turns it slowly, watching it sparkle in the sunlight.
Certainly, this must be a gift from the Gods!
....."

Three years after the attack on Styrbjorn's village his brother, Sven, has been elected their new chieftain and the village has been rebuilt.
After a successful summer voyage to Ireland the ships have returned and everybody enjoy the celebrations and heroic tales of the voyage.

Sven decides time for vengeance has come, and that a surprise attack on Haakon's village will be by land and on horseback.. Lauge Longsight and Hauge are allowed to come too.

Before setting off they practice archery and combat techniques. Suddenly the monks, Peter and Hannibal, return, and Hauge enjoys the company of his friend again.

However, the raid of vengeance does not go as planned

About the Author

Marianne Slot was a teacher for 30 years and is now a full-time writer. Ever since she was a little girl she has been a writer of poems, stories, and fairy tales! She was so addicted to writing that she spent most of her breaks in primary school writing.
For years she hid her writings in a drawer, however, after six years of living and teaching in Greenland, she felt compelled to write about the many good, sad, and exciting experiences from that beautiful country. It resulted in eight books about an Inuit boy and his life in a small Greenlandic settlement beneath the Northern Lights. Many children in Danish schools have learned about Greenland through these books. (Published in 1994-95 by Gyldendal, the largest publishing company in Denmark.)
This gave her the courage to continue publishing her stories, and a few years later the five books about the brave Viking, Hauge, were published. (The series: "Viking Blood")
Since then she has published several books in Danish, the series 'Prince Salino', which is a fantasy story, and is currently involved in an international film script/children's book project.
She lives with her husband in an old thatched farmhouse in Reersoe, Denmark, a small inlet in an area rich with relics, fortresses, and burial mounds.
