Great warriors have tales because they’re dead. Ivar Skullcleaver has a saga because his sharp wits have carved him into a living legend.
Start your journey in the mysterious islands of Norrland, embark on an adorable pillaging cruise, sail bravely through a fierce storm and reach the island-kingdom of Ingorle… shipwrecked and defenseless. But don’t worry, it’s not that bad. Not yet. Not until the soldiers of Ingorle turn you into a slave and send you up north to defend their borders from a hidden threat that only reveals itself moments before killing the beholder in a very rude way. Now it’s truly bad. So, again, don’t worry. It should get better. Especially since the hidden threat strikes and…OK, that’s enough for spoilers. Read the book!
Jack Alriksson is the famous writer of the even-more-famous-yet-unknown The Norrland Saga, a series currently consisting of one book. Because he is a lazybones and won’t finish the second one. Besides, he’s also working on a series of books for children, since a frightening hulk who writes about bloody Viking-inspired warriors is the perfect man for job – or so he thinks. And people let him think that ’cause, as stated previously, he’s big and scary.
Seriously speaking (even though he hardly does that), Jack practices the black art of satire journalism every now and then and is a staunch believer in the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Except for when he believes in Pizza and Beer.
