Saint Magnus - The Last Viking

SKU: 8399  |  ISBN: 9780997000504

In this fast-paced novel, the highly acclaimed Catholic novelist Susan Peek transports us back to a place and age all but lost in the mists of time. The story unfolds in conflict between Magnus Erlendson, a heroic young prince aflame with the love of God, and his outlawed cousin Hakon, who blames Magnus for his banishment from their kingdom. What follows is a tale of betrayal and revenge, bravery and forgiveness, as Magnus seeks to restore his father's vanquished kingdom.

"The author has an incredible insight and perception to what goes on within a young man's mind. Written for boys in boys' language: hard, fast and to the point. Magnus is vividly portrayed as a real boy with real blood in his veins. The book puts forth how courage, will, and intelligence, joined together under the strong influence of grace and prayer, make a boy into a man and a man into a saint. Mrs. Peek certainly knows how to grab one's attention and hold it captive! We're looking forward to her next work." - A Benedictine Monk (Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery, NM)
