"At the end of Europe's first millennium stand the heroes who'll define the next."
Culture war. Technological revolution. Fear of the end of the world. Sound familiar? It should. But it's not the world of 2007...it's the world of Europe, circa 1000 AD. NORTHLANDERS tells the epic tale of Sven of Orkney, an exiled Viking warrior who's been living the decadent, high life in Constantinople but now must return to the desolate lands of his birth in the frigid islands of the North Sea to reclaim his vast inheritance. Intending only to take his money and run, he finds more than he bargained for as his former family and friends are enslaved at the hands of Gorm, his ruthless uncle. What follows is a bloody quest to not only free his people, but also a young man's struggle to discover where he belongs in a rapidly changing world.
