About the Author

Over his long and varied career, Judson Roberts has been a police officer, federal agent, organized crime prosecutor, and private investigator. He is also a descendant of Rollo, also known as Rolf or Hrolf, the Viking leader who in 911 AD entered into a treaty with the King of the Western Franks and was granted the lands located around the mouth of the Seine River which eventually became known as Normandy, after the Northmen who settled there. He lives on a small farm on the edge of the Cascade Mountains near Eugene, Oregon, where he is currently working on the next volume in the Strongbow Saga series.

Excellent historical fiction with a solid base on what life was like for most people during the time of Viking invasions (before 1000 AD). Lots of action, violence and bloodshed, so if that's not your favorite fare, this may not be for you. For those mature readers (I recommend for 8th grade and up) who can handle that, this is well written with phenomenal character development. Be ready -- Roberts has no problem killing off characters you've come to like. Book 3: Road to Vengeance -- Halfdan has a prisoner to ransom back to the Franks: Genevieve, the daughter of a high-ranking aristocrat. Her story and Halfdan's connect even after he successfully ransoms her back to her family for a small fortune (with the help of Jarl Hastein). The Vikings sack Paris and await a bribe from the Frankish king to leave the country, and Halfdan bides his time waiting for his opportunity to go up against one of the men from his foster brother's crew who murdered Harald. More amazing battle scenes and subtle political maneuvers between kings, jarls and warriors.

I read ALL the time!I love a well written book. Reading so often can be difficult becasue I can figure out every ending and predict almost every out come, But in this series it felt fresh and held my attention. These books are fun, fast paced, and packed with action and of course some love. Both my sister and I had so much fun reading the series. I started looking for the next one but it looks like he hasn't had them published.....

I wish the author would find a publisher for the rest of the series already! He's not even bothering to write the rest of the series until he finds one.

Halfdan's quest for revenge continues in the third book of the riveting and highly entertaining STRONGBOW SAGA.

He returns to his ship and captain with his prisoner, Genevieve. But he finds it difficult to protect her while at the same time fending off attacks from Toke's men.

THE ROAD TO VENGEANCE is a vivid, honest portrayal of the trials and tribulations of life in the 9th-century, and it delivers an unflinching look at the many realties of that time period.

This is one high-spirited adventure novel that you won't soon forget.
