The Hammer of the Smith
About the Book
Set in a pre-Viking Norway and Denmark, this action filled novel follows the training and challenges faced by Diccon, a village smith’s apprentice. There’s a murdered stranger, romance, magic, traditional folklore, a sidekick whose magic only works when he’s drunk, battles, a power hungry warlord, and a tuxedo kitten who saves the day.
