Reviews

It is quite a feat to write history this good... Everyone who visits the British Museum's Viking exhibition should go clutching a copy of this engaging and splendidly written book. -- Dan Jones * Sunday Times *
Parker has a traveller's eye for landscape and a storyteller's sense of events and character; The Northmen's Fury is probably the most lively and well-informed introduction to the subject available today. * New Statesman *
Particularly fascinating... [Parker] proves expert at treading a delicate line between scholarship and his relish for the fantastical. -- Tom Holland * The Times *
This book is a treasury with treats galore. Lucid, comprehensive, it is a work of reference which deserves to become a classic. * Historical Novel Society *
Perfectly timed for the forthcoming British Museum exhibition. * Sunday Times *
