Kári Solmundarson was a Norse Hebridean who lived at the turn of the tenth century. The people of his time knew the harshness of life, and met it with fierceness and determination—but they also knew love, loyalty, fairness, and honor.

When Kári befriends the four Njalsson brothers and travels to Iceland, he is unknowingly caught up in a web of lies, murder, and revenge that will ultimately bind their fates together. When disaster falls, Kári swears an oath to avenge what he's lost, one that will carry him through a decade of hardship in faraway lands where he is a stranger. After that ten years, he is faced with an agonizing question: is justice actually to be had in this world? Or is the cost of seeking the truth too high for any man to pay?

Based upon the true events recounted in the Icelandic classic Njál's Saga—bestselling author Gordon Bonnet looks at how we tell good from evil, right from wrong, and the painful truth that the lines between them are often blurred and uncertain.

About the Author

Gordon Bonnet has been writing fiction for decades. Encouraged when his story Crazy Bird Bends His Beak won critical acclaim in Mrs. Moore’s 1st-grade class at Central Elementary School in St. Albans, West Virginia, he embarked on a long love affair with the written word. His interest in the paranormal goes back almost that far, although it has always been tempered by Gordon’s scientific training. This has led to a strange duality; his work as a skeptic and debunker on the popular blog Skeptophilia, while simultaneously writing paranormal and speculative novels, novellas, and short stories. He blogs daily, but is never without a piece of fiction in progress-driven to continue, as he puts it, “because I want to find out how the story ends.” Stay up to date with Gordon and all his writing and appearances on Facebook, Twitter, or at www.gordonbonnet.com.
