Steeped in Norse mythology and lore, and based on extensive historical research, the saga unfolds across the frozen fields of Sweden and the fetid fens of Denmark, ranging from the rocky heights of Geatland to the sprawling battlefields of ancient France.An epic adventure 1500 years in the making, this classic tale now comes to life once more in a bold new retelling for a modern audience.NOTE: This Complete Edition contains both Part I: The Land of Death & Shadow and Part II: The Land of Ice & Fire, each also available as separate volumes.

It includes a map, genealogies, and glossaries of place and proper names (with pronunciation guides) for ease of reference. The digital edition also features bonus content, including a Norse Rune Decoder for deciphering the untranslated passages found throughout the book, as well as a 25-page Authors Afterword detailing the adaptation process and discussing the reasoning behind many of the plot decisions that were made.
