In the year A.D. 922, a refined Arab courtier, representative of the powerful Caliph
of Baghdad, encounters a party of Viking warriors on their journey to the barbaric
North. He is appalled by Viking customs--the wanton sexuality of their pale, angular
women, their disregard for cleanliness, their cold-blooded human sacrifices. But
only in the depths of the Northland does he learn the horrifying truth: he has been
enlisted to combat a terror that comes under cover of night to slaughter the Vikings
and devour their flesh. A swords and doom-filled adventure inspired by the epic
poem Beowulf. Previously published as Eaters of the Dead.
