Life in the monastery is simple for Edwin and Luke, two young boys who

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.
