France, 799 A.D.
Vikings sacked the monastery at dawn. They burned the surrounding village and slaughtered all who stood in their path. The relics of Saint Philbert were lost, and the island monastery was abandoned by those who once dwelled there.
Years later, an orphan of the raid named Abriel seeks to recover the relics to restore the bones of Saint Philbert. His journey will force him to face the Vikings, who colonized the island in the absence of the monks.
They hold the key to finding the relics, but they have a different plan for Abriel, one that will take him to the North to find his destiny.

C.J. Adrien, a French-American scholar with a passion for Vikings, developed his love for history at the Chateau de Noirmoutier, a site renowned for its influence by Scandinavian raiders. His debut novel, The Line of His People, was inspired by research he conducted in preparation for a doctoral program in early medieval history as well as his admiration for historical fiction writers such as Bernard Cornwell and Ken Follett. You can follow C.J. Adrien on Twitter (@ChristophAdri1), on Facebook (facebook.com/cjadrien), and on his website cjadrien.comReview:
"Adrien's novel is a well thought out, deeply researched narrative that marries history with young adult fiction. In a time where females are popular among the young adult sector, this male focused novel is a welcome reprieve and appeals to a need for an action packed novel." - Portland Book Review
