New Novel: Life is good...
LIfe is good. My eighth book, and third novel, is up for sale - the electronic version on Amazon is free until I get my first fifty reviews. Here's a little blurb:
The death of King Harald Hardrada of Norway marked the end of the Viking age, but in this sweeping saga, Brent Olson creates a stunning work of alternative history by moving the path of an arrow just one inch and changing the course of history.
Harald Sigurdsson, King Harald Hardrada of Norway, King of the Vikings, was born to rule. He embraced that birthright, dominating his world with the strength in his arm and the power of his will. In an instant, one brutal mistake and a shattering wound took all he valued from him. But what if that never happened?
In this captivating alternate history, Brent Olson creates a world in which King Harald survives the strike of an arrow and fled his disgrace with a band of equally broken warriors still holding tight to his leadership. They ventured West, to Iceland, Greenland, into the darkness, to a land known only through legends and lies. A land with no need of a king, no room for a ruler. A land where a king could hope to become something more.
This enthralling, thought-provoking story begins a thousand years ago on a battlefield outside York, England, and then moves across the North Atlantic to Iceland and beyond.
By moving the path of one arrow one inch, Olson has created an entirely new story for the world.
