Dawning of the Wolf Age - The Tribes of Yggdrasil: Book 1
“My name is Haldor Olsen. I was happy once. I had everything a man could want: a good job, a beautiful wife and an amazing son. In a flash it was ripped away. What remains is a raging ember of what I once was.
The Hrymar came without warning, hungry for slaves. At first attacking ships, and then our first colony on Epsilon Eridani. Now they’re coming for Earth. I have to stop them… somehow.”
Some doors should never be opened.
In 2013, two researchers decipher a puzzle on an ancient Scandinavian runestone leading to contact with an alien race, the Alfar, 600 light-years away; A century later, millions would wish they'd never unlocked that secret.
The benevolent Alfar uplift mankind technologically and teach them that,180,000 years ago, the Norse Gods seeded their world, as well as Earth.
The Gods instructed the Alfar to shepherd humanity to the stars once they'd advanced enough to unlock the secret on the runestones; this great gift became a curse. As man plied the stars and began colonization, they encountered other advanced races, including the Hrymar, depraved slave traders.
In 2128, Haldor Olsen, a government explorer and sometime spy, becomes a reluctant hero when his home is attacked, and he's faced with losing everything he loves. He travels hundreds of light-years in a frantic race to save mankind from enslavement by an inhuman enemy.
Brothers will fight and kill each other,
sisters’ children will defile kinship.
It is harsh in the world,
whoredom rife an axe age,
a sword age shields are riven,
a wind age,
a wolf age before the world goes headlong.
No man will have mercy on another.
A short note from the author on the book:
This is the book I wanted to read 25 years ago, but it didn't exist. This certainly isn't the first time the Norse Gods have ever been invoked in fiction, however, I think this will be the first time that an entire series has their presence as the backdrop.
The protagonist, Haldor Olsen, is a futuristic descendant of that lineage. I hope to highlight the virtues that modern Heathen’s and Pagan’s hold dear: a love of family, reverence for ancestors, a desire to live in harmony with nature, and tolerance of other faiths. Don’t get me wrong, this is not a Heathen book, or a Pagan book, it’s a gripping science fiction novel that has those currents flowing through it.
What’s the book about? The usual things: Love, Family, Deceit, Revenge, Honor, Betrayal and Passion. You’ll find an ample supply of the emotions that drive us everyday, but of course amped up a little for your reading pleasure!
This will be a sweeping epic, spanning thousands of light years, holding manifold mysteries. My plan is to write 9 books. As some know, 9 is a very significant number in the Northern Spiritual traditions. This first book is approximately 312 pages long – a proper book size, not a bloated paper-weight, as I see so many books today becoming. If you enjoy longer tales, that’s great, I’ll try to release a new volume every 6-8 months over the next several years. Some authors try to put out one titanic book every 5+ years. I was never that patient. I want a manageable, steady delivery of stories for my reading enjoyment, so that’s what I’ll offer you.
I hope you enjoy the book; I reveled in the writing of it, and planning the next books is very exciting.
If you enjoy the book, I would ask that you try to take the time to write a short review – 20 words is all it need be (on amazon.com). As an independent author and publisher, I don’t have a massive marketing machine behind me, I have you. And if you want to ensure I keep writing books, reviews will do just that. They will spread the word about my books, and encourage others to buy them. Writing is now my day job, and it pays the bills (just).
In celebration of Yule, the book is ½ price, at $2.99, through December. Enjoy the book, and tell your friends!
