The Battle Of Evernight by Cecilia Dart-Thornton


Original Title: The Battle Of Evernight

Once upon a time the great Faeran high king, Angavar, became trapped in mortal Erith along with his twin brother - and nemesis - Morragan 'the Raven Prince', when the gate to the Faeran Realm was closed on them. . . Now, many centuries later, the fugitive who calls herself Tahquil has at last discovered the truth. She is being hunted down by the Raven Prince because she alone can reopen the gate to the Fair Realm, so Morragan plans to use her for his escape from exile. However, Tahquil's mind is still clouded by a potent spell called the Bitterbynde, and she is also dying from a mystical wasting disease. The cure, and the final answers to the mystery of her past, can only be found in Evernight - at the fortress of the Raven Prince himself. Though Tahquil has already survived deadly trials of goblins, spriggans, pixies and haunts, nothing can prepare her for the horror that is Evernight. Here magic rules, the sun is banished -- and the Raven Prince's whims shape the very nature of existence. As Morragan's wights and Angavar's knights become locked in a battle that could engulf all of Erith, Tahquil's quest for the truth finally hinges on a desperate choice. If she opens the Gate, will she thereby save two worlds -- or instead destroy everything she holds dear?

The Last Viking Trilogy by Poul Anderson


Original Title: The Last Viking Trilogy

The complete trilogy in one volume: An epic saga by an award-winning author about the daring life of the fierce Norse warrior-king Harald Hardrede. Harald Hardrede, last and greatest of the Norse kings, matures from an uncrowned young man hungry for battle to a ruler with dreams of expansion he is determined to realize. The Golden Horn: Only seventeen, Harald Sigurdharson—one day to be called Hardrede—covets the throne he is still too young to take. Restless, the warrior journeys to Constantinople where he becomes a member of the fabled Varangian Guard entrusted with the safety of the Byzantine emperor and romances an enticing beauty from a powerful clan. The Road of the Sea Horse: Harald Hardrede, who has spent years serving foreign rulers in faraway realms, returns to Norway, undefeated and ready to grow his empire. Harald’s task to unite the northlands will be difficult and require great sacrifice, for the people will adamantly resist his invasion. But Harald will not be deterred; he is determined to carve out his place in history. The Sign of the Raven: Harald has become a great king and a powerful conqueror, but his rule has become unstable. Treachery is brewing in the North and his conquest of Denmark is still out of reach. Unable to raise his wife’s downtrodden spirits or identify with his illegitimate sons, he sets out on his final adventure to seize the prize he has coveted above all others: the fortified island called Britannia.
