BASED ON MEDIEVAL NORSE legend, Saga is a novel of enormous power. We meet Arnkel, the fierce Norse chieftain of Swan's fjord who has sworn to recapture the lands his bitter, aging father has sold off, robbing his son of his inheritance. Arnkel feuds with his neighbors, exploits the desires of his closest supporter for another man's wife and hires assassins to carry out his will. The land is stalked by evil-whispering elves are everywhere-and violence is a constant threat: neighbor distrusts neighbor and no one knows where or when death will strike.
