Kveldulf and his boy Tryggvi have already seen their share of hardship. Life in medieval Iceland is precarious at the best of times, and many families are touched by great loss. With their modest estate, loyal farmhands, and prized herd of horses, Kveldulf and Tryggvi fare better than most. But when Kveldulf mistakenly kills a Christian priest, the lives of everyone on the farmstead are thrown into sudden jeopardy. It has only been a few short years since the Icelanders begrudgingly gave up most of their ancient pagan ways, and a potentially explosive religious conflict still seethes just below the surface. Seeking to clear his name and protect his people, Kveldulf soon finds himself caught up in events far greater, and stranger, than he could have imagined. For the human settlers of Iceland are not the only inhabitants of that harsh and beautiful place, and the coming of Christianity has not gone unnoticed... The Stoneborn Saga combines historical realism and fantastic imagery to create a vision of the past that is alive with potential. Journey with Kveldulf, Tryggvi, and a diverse cast of characters as they confront and defy the limitations of what is possible, in the name of honor, faith, and family.
