* BadAss: It's hard to list any of the Oathsworn who isn't one. Special mentions goes to Einar, Pinleg, Finn Horsehead, Skapti Halftroll, Gunnar Raudi and Orm himself. And that's only on the first book.



* BloodKnight: Many characters especially Finn and Pinleg. Averted with Orm. Although he is certainly BadAss and a fearsome fighter, he doesn't enjoy fighting as much as the next Oathsworn and more often than not tries to solve the Oathsworns problems diplomatically.

The Norse religion is dying as the White Christ cult spreads throughout Europe. The Oathsworn is hired for a task by the wealthy Swedish merchant Brondolf Lambisson and his companion, the German monk Martin. The Oathsworn soon find themselves on an adventure involving both a chase for the buried silver of Atilla the Hun and TheSpearOfDestinyy. But what are Lambissons true intentions? And Martin would sure like that spear all for himself... What follows is a series of events that will lead the characters across Europe and Asia on quests full of bone, blood and steel.
