"This first instalment in Matthew Harffy’s new series is a gory treat"

The young monk Hunlaf arrives at the monastery on Lindisfarne in AD793. A day later the Vikings launch their first raid on English soil. Amid the carnage Hunlaf sees one Viking turn on his comrades to protect the lives of two children...

In a clear homage to The Seven Samurai Hunlaf and Runolf gather together a small gang of warriors. This first instalment in Matthew Harffy’s new series is a gory treat, as Hunlaf discovers the warrior hidden under his monkish robes.
