Delve into Celtic and Viking history with the
Four Masters Series
For thousands of years, the tribes of Ireland warred incessantly. Then came the Vikings. Would the foreigners subdue all or become just another bitter rival, trading strength and warcraft to the highest bidder?
The Four Masters series follows the family of an exiled Northman turned Christian priest through the trials of bitter conflict, first in their homeland of Connacht, and then beyond into the long shadow of Brian Boru, Ireland's first national hero. Rannal Halvorsen is pitted against adversaries, old and new, as he strives to provide security in each convulsive episode.
