The gripping second novel in the Oathsworn series, charting the adventures of a band of Vikings looking for the return of the Rune Sword that will lead them to Attila's Hoard A band of brothers, known as the Oathsworn, committed only to each other and feared by many, rises again, setting sail on the wolf sea in search of vengeance and glory. Washed up in a hostile city, battle-weary and out of luck, the Oathsworn lie waiting for their reluctant leader, the young Orm, to bring them back once more to wealth and warfare. But Orm's prized sword - the legendary Rune Serpent - is gone, stolen by the rapacious Starkad, and with it the runes writ upon the hilt that only Orm can decipher. The Oathsworn embark on a dangerous mission to reclaim their precious sword as they pursue the elusive Starkad across the turbulent Wolf Sea. Unafraid to fight and cunning in the ways of men, they wreak violence and bloody revenge on their enemies. Caught up in the treacherous battles in the East between the rulers of Constantinople, aided by hordes of Viking mercenaries, and the Arabs, their adventures will take them from Greece to Jerusalem, across the treacherous Wolf Sea where only the hunting hungry dare set sail. Epic adventure broad in scope and bloody in action, The Wolf Sea is the stunning second novel in the Oathsworn series.

Liked this one just as much as book one.

From start to finish this book is a great read.

We follow the Oathsworn from where we left them in the first book; depleted and divided they travel from Greece to Cyprus to Antioch and Jerusalem. They meet Muslims, Bedouins and fellow Danes while battling their way to Starkard, in a quest to retrieve the Rune Serpent Sword he stole.

Jumping from action to action this book seldom stops anywhere for long. Between the traveling or the fighting there was always something new to catch my attention and keep me interested. My only issue with the book is minor, I wonder if it was really necessary to write everything in Latin and then have Orm give us the translation? Once or twice would have been fine but it just got annoying after the third time. For a gritty Viking tale, this is my first pick.
