Olof Torkillson is known as the Wayfinder.
A man of uncanny skill and intellect, he knows how to navigate ships and motivate men.
Jarl Sjur is a great man with a terrible weakness: lust for his sister, Lady Frejda.
Forbidden to marry or to leave him, she does everything she can to kill him, but always he survives.
When Jarl sets off on an expedition from Denmark to plunder lands far away, she asks to go with him, thinking she might find an opportunity to be done with him once and for all.
The men think she will be bad luck, until the ultimate sacrifice is made, and Lady Frejda joins the men on board.
At Sjur's urging, and with the promise of a share of the plundered riches, Torkillison joins the Viking expedition.
He gets the men to England easily enough, but from the moment they land in Northumbria, the Saxons are ready, and a bloody battle ensues.
But the greatest battle the Northmen will ever fight is when they head back to Jarl Sjur's homeland, where he has declared himself king, and a Wizard with a desire to return to Baghdad has control of his mind...
Filled with rich historical detail, epic sword fights and all the family drama of Game of Thrones, the Wayfinder will have you cheering for the good guys, no matter how many heads roll.
Praise for John Drake's Fletcher series
"Swashbuckling adventure on the high seas doesn't get much better than this. [... ] John Drake writes beautifully, and you'll be torn between savoring the words and quickly flipping the pages. Any favorable comparison to Stevenson or Patrick O'Brian is totally justified." - Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author
John Drake trained as a biochemist to post-doctorate research level before realizing he was no good at science. His working career was in the television department of ICI until 1999 when he became a full-time writer. John's hobby is muzzle-loading shooting, and his interests are British history and British politics (as a spectator), plus newspapers, TV news, and current affairs. He is married with a son and two grandchildren.
