The Battle of the Viking Woman
Life in the monastery is simple for Edwin and Luke, two young boys who
are training to be monks. It seems that nothing will disrupt the peace
and order. Then news arrives that the Vikings have invaded, and they are
forced to run for their lives. If the Vikings catch them, they will be
taken away and become slaves. But with the elders in danger, will they
turn back to help them?
A Viking story blending Norse mythology with historical fact and Terry Deary's vividly imagined characters.
