Synopsis: This historical adventure sweeps back to a time when bold men hazarded rough and unknown seas in search of treasure and glory. The orphaned grandson of Leif Eiriksson, seeks his due overseas, despite the opposition of his unforgiving kinsmen.
From the Inside Flap: Stuart Mirsky's auspicious first novel is less a retelling of ancient sagas than it is a reinvention of the genre. He has found what most writers only strive for -- a singular and original narrative voice that seduces and envelops the reader and draws us to times and places far removed from our own. The King of Vinland's Saga is more than just a wonderful, escapist action/adventure tale; its marrow is pure myth and, like all true myths, its characters' ambitions and passions, their loves and hatreds, their triumphs and defeats resonate in these pages as vibrantly as they must have when our ancestors first heard their like over campfires in the icy wastelands. Mirsky set himself a task analogous to a first-time climber beginning with Everest rather than a rock-wall -- miracle of miracles, he reached the top! --- Nelson Breen, screenwriter & documentarian
