The Strongbow Saga: The Road to Vengeance by Judson Roberts


The vivid Strongbow Saga continues in The Road to Vengeance, as Halfdan brings home his prisoner, the lady Genevieve. Protecting her long enough to retrieve her ransom from her wealthy father proves harder than he originally thought, and as the Northmen continue their aggressive assault on Frankia, Halfdan finds himself growing weary of war. But soon he is caught up between two oaths he made to himself: that of vengeance, and to not become the man his father was.

As adventurous and intelligent as its predecessors, Roberts's latest is riveting. Halfdan is a quick witted, painfully honest, and tangible character. No detail, no matter how shocking or lurid, is left out of this carefully composed and rousing novel that is not just about Vikings and their battles, but is a stirring tale of the rise of a hero, and perhaps even a legend.

Just a question...my friend and I were debating this the other day...do you think Genevieve will be coming back into the story through the next book?

Oh, I bet. Slight spoiler alert for anyone else reading this....

I am sure she'll come back, if not in the next book, but later on in the series, especially after she and Halfdan were together. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if a baby made its appearance either...we'll have to see! Glad to hear from another fan of the books! I just love them.

Good question! I'm not quite sure. If I had to guess, I'd say about May or June of next year. We might be able to find an exact date on Amazon after the New Year. I'm looking forward to reading the next book!

i thought it was good. i hoped though that he would wrap the story up and not drag on.

and i did NOT like the way genevieve and halfdan ended up. it just didn't feel right at all.

but the duel was great! waiting impatiently for the next installment

Is there any update on when the next installment of the Strongbow Saga is being released?

The Compulsive Reader said...

I haven't heard anything about another book! Unfortunately, I am afraid that perhaps the first three haven't sold very well, and maybe that's why we aren't seeing another one.

I e-mail mr. Roberts, and looked on his sight. Both told me that he hopes to have the fourth book out in early 2011
