A Slave’s Tale, the sequel to Hakon of Rogen’s Saga, is told from the point of view of a slave girl, Helga, who stows away on the longship when Hakon, the young Viking chieftain, sets sail for France on a voyage to return Rark, a freed slave, to his homeland. The voyagers’ journey is perilous—they narrowly escape capture by an invading fleet, and their ship is severely damaged by a storm. Upon reaching France—where the Vikings are now hated, not feared—only tragedy ensues.

I first read "Hakon of Rogen' s Saga" and "A Slave's Tale" as a child almost 50 years ago. Rereading them as an adult, I was happy to see the magic was still there and thoroughly enjoyed my trip down memory lane!
