Children of the Chieftain Series #3

“The young crew of the Viking ship 'Eagle' set out on a new journey when they are given the task of delivering a message in the land of the Rus. But fate has a surprise in store for them when they are ordered to travel on the Viking trading route south to Constantinople, a route fraught with danger. They must face warring tribesmen, deadly rapids and a host of other dangers before they reach their destination. There the adventure continues when they find themselves in the service of the emperor of the Greeks.”

Bounty is the third adventure in this delightful series for Young Adults, continuing
Ahl Brightsword’s story.

The Eagle’s crew are attempting to gather the treasure needed to end their banishment and return to their home, but find themselves joining with a fleet of warriors intent on aiding the Greek Emperor at Miklagard to defend against an invasion.

This is a fast-paced novel intent on drama and action, a prerequisite for attracting the attention of young adult fiction – especially for boys. Mr Wills seems to know his business when it comes to the detail of Viking ships and shipping.

Bounty can be read as a stand-alone, but starting at the beginning with Book One, Children of the Chieftain: Betrayed will heighten the adventure.
