When Gunar’s father is taken by the Valykries to Valhalla, Gunar makes it his mission to bring his father back – but unfortunately, he is no fighter. Lost, alone, and blaming himself for what has happened to his father, Gunar has no idea how to set about his task, but then he encounters a mysterious old man who sets him on the right path. But then Gunar is captured and made to work as a slave – will his father be lost to him forever?

This engaging adventure offers a great opportunity for young readers to learn about the Vikings. Offering some intriguing insights into the history of this period, it is also an entertaining and appealing story in its own right.
