As we approach the end of our epic saga, the tumultuous conflict between the Rus and the Vikings comes to a conclusion, with grave consequences. While in Iceland, Ubbe is determined to fulfill his father Ragnar's dream and sail farther west than any Viking has traveled before. And there is unfinished business in England. The Vikings have established settlements there and overrun most of the country - except for Wessex. The King of Wesex, Alfred the Great, is the only Sussex ruler to seriously challenge their complete dominanation. Ivar the Boneless must again face, in battle, the king he only knew as a boy for a final reckoning.
