Arnulf - a Viking Saga

 

Arnulf - a Viking saga is a Viking series of five volumes, which has now sold over 20,000 printed books. The Nordic tale of power struggles, honor, hostility and revenge in all its great beauty and horror. The saga is an epic tour they force throughout the Viking Age in the years around the turn of the millennium. Fiction is blended with historical inheritance, while Arnulf grows from being an angry young man to becoming an experienced and traveled warrior and jomsviking with responsibility for vife and children. Arnulf's saga is based on extensive serious research, and the story brings the reader deep into the authentic Viking Age.

I'm looking for foreign publishers! All languages.

I write about Vikings, because I am passionate about the Viking period and to revive and disseminate the epic, Nordic history. Personal dramas, power-plays and kingdoms formation - the Viking Age was a time when intrepid Scandinavians sailed out and made their deep mark on the world through trade, plundering and settlements, and in my tale of Arnulf I weave fictional characters and events in symbiosis with authentic people and events. I want to get completely under the skin of the Vikings and with uncompromising realism, I portray their lives and times, aspirations and hopes through Arnulf's intense and passionate saga, for Viking history is an important story for all of us - and it is a compelling story.

"Arnulf is the first novel in "Arnulf - a viking saga."

Arnulf, named after the eagle and the wolf, is wild and belligerent. It is hard for him to stay home in the village while his eldest brother, Helge, is away a-viking and hes other brother, Rolf, thinks only of land and livestock. Arnulf is ready to conquer the world and win his love, the fair Frejdis. Arnulf eagerly awaiting Helge's return, as he has promised him a place on the summe voyage and a sword. But it is a bloodied ship that returns home. Helge has been killed in a vengeance-clash with a Norwegian chieftain whose daughter he raped. The Norwegian chieftain has also been killed, but the Danes have captured his son, Toke. The saga begins! And a great voyage lead Arnulf to bloody fighting and fierce Jomsvikings.

"The Jomsviking" is the second novel in "Arnulf - a viking saga."

Arnulf is now a Jomsviking: his life is divided between Viking raids in the summer and peaceful village winters. This spring he will travel to England with his five blood brothers - his Ring of Blood - and here they will be joined by Sweyn Forkbeard and Olav Tryggvason's motley army, even though Sigvalde, the earl of Jomsborg, is against it. He knows Arnulf! And he knows Arnulfs bloodbrother, Vagn Ågesøn, the Ring of Blood, and what they can do ...

"Odins wolf" is the third novel in "Arnulf - a Viking saga."

Arnulf returns home to Norway as a hunted man, and he is not allowed to rest for a long time. A fierce night becomes the beginning of a long journey towards a distant and mighty empire: the Gardarige with the capital Kiev, where the Viking descendant prince Vladimir is ruling. Hate and retribution breed powerful enemies, and Arnulf starts his quest for justice.

"Fenrisfærden" is the fourth novel in "Arnulf - a Viking saga".

Arnulf returns home after his violent journey to Kiev, but Norway is on the verge of revolt. The earl Hakon is threatened, and Olav Tryggvason dare to strive to become king. Old hostility blows up, and the events send Arnulf on a voyage to Iceland. The warrior blood burns, and he does not meet mild men. The great Nordic story continues!

"The Bloodring" is the fifth novel in "Arnulf - a Viking saga."

Arnulf and his six bloodbrothers from Jomsborg - his bloodring - travels to Constantinople to be admitted to the varangian guard, Emperor Basil's Viking-bodyguard. 

I now write the sixth novel: "King storm."

Reviews & Readers:

 

ARNULF:

 

"Finally! Finally here is someone who tells us what it was really like with the Vikings. Here comes the real thing. It is just as exciting and violent as most fantasy, but it has its keel in the sea of reality. It's like being there yourself. Veulf is simply an exciting and engaging plunder story from real life."

Politiken

 

"Entertaining debut novel. Fine balance between serious research and informal entertainment. You are certainly not bored in Arnulf's company."

Jyllandsposten 

 

"This book is for everyone between the ages of 12 and 92, who love fast-paced action, drama – and of course the Vikings. You get swept away by a terrific performance that is composed with a sense of suspense and surprise effects."

Berlingske Tidende

 

"Engaging, well-told story. Beautiful, broad narrative. The author handles her material with great certainty. The book is as talented as it is gory. Bubbly and enthusiastically told with the effective loan of language from the sagas."

Folkeskolen.dk 

 

"If you like fights and tough talk, then this is something for you."

Jyske Vestkysten 

 

"It's been a great experience to have been immerged for some days in the heroic world that Susanne Clod Pedersen has superbly unfolded in her literary debut. Characters are rich, varied and eminently individualized. Susanne Clod Pedersen writes with archaeological accuracy and a real life, active imagination. Her fight scenes are second only to Homer's. To follow the young Viking, Arnulf, in his journey in the northwestern part of Europe has been like returning to a place you've always known and which has just been waiting to be brought back to life. With a well-aimed blow Susanne Clod Pedersen kills all objections to the historical novel, for she makes the past completely present and causes it to live in us again. She succeeds in making us both familiar with the protagonist, as he was and is, and in telling us, the readers, something about ourselves that we had not forgotten."

Børne- og ungdoms-litteratur magasinet BUM

 

"A blast of a book!"

Allerød Library, month’s recommendation

 

"An exciting, bloody and engrossing book. But it's more than that, the author manages to portray great emotions, without being corny, nauseating and pathetic. There are fight scenes worthy of Tolkien’s Uruk-hai, as well as genuine emotions. Exciting and almost cinematic Danish history."

Fortællingen.dk

 

"The story has all the blood, mead and Valhalla rutting it takes to lead us to the longhouse of the Jomsvikings, and Arnulf himself, he is a true Viking who makes Holger Danske appear like a wimp."

Chili 

 

"Arnulf is a really exciting Viking novel where you really hear the sword battles and freeze with the Vikings on their rough sailing."

Boghitz 

"Such a book! Life as a Viking at full speed."

Boganmeldelse.stafetbog 

 

"Arnulf is well written and action filled. An excellent book."

Børn og bøger

 

"The language entices the reader right into the story. The story is incredibly realistically portrayed and you come to live easily in the characters' feelings."

Bogrummet.dk

 

"There are books so well-rounded that they seem to have been fully formed even before they were written; the author has just had the trouble of getting it down on paper, not a word should be different. One must be careful to use the phrase "born classic," but here I can risk it."

Fyldepennen 

 

"It is a great book! I am absolutely fascinated by the beautiful language and the many turns, which make the Viking Perios appear so vividly for the reader. The plot is beautifully put together, I feel what the protagonist feels – palpitations, tears behind his eyelids, time that stands still. I experienced heady joy while I was reading this book! I am happy to have been on the ship and felt the battles in my mind, but also the longing for my special someone and a love that burns. I can only recommend everyone to read it – whether or not you are interested in the Viking Era!"

Vikingebloggen 

 

"Knowledge about the Viking period served on a plate. Here are richly detailed descriptions of life and faith. Lots of action, raids and temperament. Self-indulgence, urges, muscles and bloody conflict. Not for the fainthearted reader."

Grønlandske Landsbibliotek

 

"There is courage and strength, sea spray and blood trails. It's like being there. "

Pensionisten 

 

"His experiences with the Vikings in Norway and later with the Jomsvikings is action-packed, exciting and dramatic."

Den store danske, Gyldendals open encyclopaedia

 

"One of my absolute top writers in Denmark."

SeptemberNet

 

"Very dramatic. It's strong stuff. We are witnesses of blood-gushing battle scenes and the manly world of the Jomsvikings, with its notions of honour and formidable heroic life. The text is written in an adapted language, which impressively gives a credible sense of the Vikings’ scarce style as we know it from the songs and sagas."

Lektørudtalelse

 

 

Reader's opinion about ARNULF : (google translate - sorry!)

 

 

"When one's heart is knocking for a special era, it's always with no secret arrogance that you take a book down from the wall, this arrogance is to the extent of Arnulf's wall. Susanne Clod is able to write about the Vikings in a manner that is both, historically correct and VERY exciting. You can taste the blood, smell the smoke and you can feel the warm strong feelings our ancestors fought with. An amazing book that I can certainly recommend to anyone with adventure and fighting spirit in the blood to read.

 Readers' opinion about THE JOMSVIKING:

 

 

"The novel is exciting, dramatic and image-making to such an extent that the reader almost experiences being present. Eminently described. I experience her language as a kind of music that is powerful, sounding and obsessive. Her vocabulary and sentences are captivating, fluent and image-making, where the readers of The Jomsviking experience standing in the midst of the Viking era with the blowing weapons, the bragging men and the noise of the storm and sailing in the Viking ships. The reader gets everything we wish for excitement, heroism, battle with swords and shields, desire for power, honor and deception, as well as humor and viking life. In short, we have a historical novel that is concerned, entertaining, exciting and where the language adds a dimension with space and viking hinges. Like the Arnulf, the novel has wildness and fire in the body. " - Helsingør Dagblad

 

"Susanne Clod Pedersen has taught us to think as vikings, speak as vikings and beat as vikings. Read it ... for the sake of God - if it was filmed, it would be the best action film to date. And wait to open the mead until you finish reading ... otherwise it just draws skin. That book is hard to escape. " - Vølse

 

"Blowing and exciting novel. Speed over the field. There is a genuine viking mood and as a reader you are in a good and dangerous company with Arnulf Wolf Blood and his crushing friends. A killing story. An exciting Viking series. " - Lektørudtalelse

 

"More than usual exciting. There is a full bang on the first side, and after the last page you are just gazing after the weather. "Bogrummet.dk

 

"Susanne Clod's Viking figure Arnulf is a wonderful bold proposition for a vital Danish Viking. Thousands of research hours lie behind the creation. I have always been in a good company with Arnulf - and I expect him a lot! "Preben Mørkbak (the author of" Erik den Røde "and" Sven Tveskæg ")

 

"Best Viking Book Since Red Snake and Giant Song in the North." - Maria Helleberg

"You can just keep your reader caught in a moment. I immediately fell into you and Arnulf's lovely universe. You're just too cool. " - Per

 

" Reads number 2 with as much enthusiasm. Fabulous. One of the best Danish Viking sagas written (and I have read a lot). However, I have one complaint ... you are writing too slowly ... I am already getting withdrawals and considering starting again ... You will be completely Arnulf dependent. " - Freya

ARNULF page 414-417: The beginning of the battle in Hjørungevåg:

     

"War companions! Hirdmen! Precious sons of Jomsborg! Kinsmen and blood brothers, Einherjer and heirs to Valhalla!"

Vagn stood in the skeid’s bow with axe and sword held high over his head. The long hair stroked his shoulders under the helmet’s edge, and his eyes burned like coal. His mouth was wild, behind the chainmail black lava cooked, he was a warrior, a warrior in blood, in intention, in limb, a looter of life, the death realm’s generous provider! The Jomsvikings turned their heads and were silent for as far as his voice could reach.

"Before my sword sees its sheath again, will the bay here be drained by corpses! Before I lower my axe, will the screams of Norwegian women have frozen the sea to ice all the way to Vigen! My courage can be measured with Odin’s! My strength with Thor’s! Who here will follow me into battle against earl Hakon and win a greater honour than Jomsborg could ever before boast of?"

A roar made the ships quake waves in the water, and the Vikings pulled out their weapons and shook their shields as Vagn swung his axe, so the skeid’s figurehead almost left its life, "I am so proud to stand before you that my chainmail is about to burst! In Asgard the warriors beg Valkyries to gather better company, can you not hear Sigurd Fafnerslayers’s and Starkad’s cries? Will you toast with them with Heidrun’s mead before the sun goes down? Together we will rip the heads from the Norwegian goats and use them as knáttleikr balls, who will help me comfort widows and daughters tonight, who will bathe in loot and gold, and who here will help hold earl Hakon until all our force has used him like a woman?"

A new roar rattled shields and weapons against each other, and Arnulf screamed with them, Vagn held the heart’s pulse in a single grip.

"You are shining like Surtr’s battle-folk! Hakon is already crying from the horror in his piss-wet pants, and he shall have more to weep over! Before the day fades, I will hang him up by the balls, and there he will be allowed to hang until he howls that he will kiss my ass!"

The laughter crashed, and the swords beat rumbles against the shield’s surfaces. Vagn’s will was an engulfing river, it took everything with it, breaths were drawn with one lung, weapons carried with one hand, Arnulf had faith, was faithful to the death! The Ågeson tossed his head, striking his axe against the earl’s ship, "So beleaguered is Hakon that he has rocked the cradles free for infants, set sail on them and staffed them with dogs! Woe to you who stands at the back, you will only get cold flesh to hit! Kill! Flense! Murder! Slay! Do we feel pain?"

"No!"

"Do we know fatigue?"

"No!"

"Do we know what fear is?"

"No!"

"Who wins the victory?"

"Us!"

"Who are we?"

"Sons of Jomsborg!"

Again, the dark warrior’s cries were drowned out by enthusiastic roaring and rumbling, but he quietened them again. Frantically he grew, throwing his shadow completely over Sigvalde’s dragon, froth sprayed and the listeners became obsessed with a madness like a burning disease while the bear-earl’s voice resounded all the way to Jötunheimr, "Fight with me! Bleed with me! Win with me! If I falter, scorn me! If I flee, kill me! If I die, avenge me!"

Arnulf cried tears in his throat. With shame the last remaining fear and hesitation left his chest, Serpenttooth had to dance among its kinsmen, the shield-wolves howled, pulling at each other, woe to the Norwegians, woe to earl Hakon, woe to all of Norway!

From Vagn to Bue, the Jomswarriors and hirdmen screamed and hollered with the earls’ son’s temper, ships blazed, and shields rumbled united in a single rhythm while the cries repeated Sigvalde’s name.

Arnulf was a scale on the serpent, the fate ruled, Odin rode Sleipnir over the soot-dark rolling clouds, and behind him beamed the late sun in the Valkyries’ helmets. This was the day for honour and heroism, for bravery’s deed and great revenge, Bifrost was open to Valhalla, and murder was the water bearing the fleet, zeal the blood that hammered the arms as rigid as man’s spears and madness the breeze that drank sweat from the skin!

The Norwegians also appeared to be whipped into action, their jaws howling from their limbs, and Sigvalde saw no reason to wait any longer. With a god-like roar he flung his spear towards earl Hakon and sacrificed the Norwegian fleet to the Aesir Lord, the oars were put into use, and the two forces approached each other, as inevitably as the increasing tide and the closer the Norwegian axes showed their newly-sharpened edges, the louder Arnulf shouted along to drown out the enemy’s spouting! He saw everything from the thwart, everything. The countless country's defenders, many of whom had nothing more to place between blows and skin than layers of leather but whose hatred thickened the air, the spiky spears which roofed Hakon’s fleet like a hedgehog’s back, they squeezed their weapons, which for some were simply nail-tipped clubs, pointed sticks and firewood axes; the unpainted shields, and far behind the Norwegian force, a cow on a hillside shook flies from its neck with its muzzle in the grass. It was so peaceful! When the conflict was over and lineages had fallen, it would still stand there, only the night could disrupt its endless munching and patiently slouching tail.

Vagn commanded bows and slings be prepared, but before the arrows and stones were laid ready, a horn sounded from Hakon’s red ship, and the next moment hissing swarms of arrows swirled in high arches over the water. Arnulf raised his shield, ducking behind it. Serpenttooth hissed so strongly that he had completely forgotten the initial skirmish, but Svend laughed when the Norwegian earl blundered, his attack reaching only the water between them and none of the Jomsvikings lifted anything to guard them other than snide laughter.

Embarrassed Arnulf lowered his arm, but soon after the danger was threatening enough and Vagn stretched his sword in the air to give the sign. The arrows were awaited with eerie tension, more cowardly weapons did not exist! Even the finest warriors had to pay with their lives to men who out of luck succeeded with their blind shots, and all toil and ingenuity stood in vain against randomness, against a single toe long iron tip even Bue and Vagn could not do anything!

Both fleets tensed their bows and simultaneously released, and Arnulf curled, shuddering, into a ball of yarn behind the high raised wolf-shield when a hail of iron speckled the skeid like a full beard. It slammed against the shield, an arrow slipped by while another penetrated several hand-lengths through, and the edge was torn up by a tip that ended its fall with a dull clatter against his helmet. The hood mitigated the blow, Vagn shouted again, and Arnulf snapped the intruding arrow, daring a quick glance. The archers were scantily shielded by their companions, but the exposure was dangerous, and it was about getting the arrows in the air before Hakon’s men loosened their strings. It sang and hissed, warnings barked, the North men had to stay in cover, and even before the bows were lowered, Vagn sent stones over the enemy. That rain was hardly so deadly, but men were beaten unconscious and bones crushed, Sigvalde would be satisfied, and the rowers strained themselves on.

Hakon’s second volley flew close, it was difficult to achieve full shielding and the Vikings at the oars were not spared, although many turned with raised shields. The Norwegians also shot burning arrows at their guests, but it was easy enough to extinguish incipient loose fires as long as close combat had not begun, and the cleared ships did not seem to be easily flammable. Svend jumped up, throwing his shield to Arnulf while he yelled for protection, for now he would row! Short of breath Arnulf returned Serpenttooth to its sheath and crawled to a free oar, while the soaked hair bristled the helmet from the scalp in sheer fear of arrows in the back, and only at the last minute did he manage to get both shields lifted before the ships were made to a drum-skin and chastened by the North men’s anger.

"It is a dry rain falling from the fjelds, it does not give many crops!"

Svend's face shone with excitement as he helped a wounded rower aside and pulled the oar as if he alone would ram Hakon earl’s fleet. Stones splintered the skeid, damaging the thin planks, and surprisingly powerful flint hammered the highest shield against his shoulder. Arnulf turned it a little to protect them both, and Svend managed some strokes between the forces’ exchanges of shots, so swarms of arrows rattled against each other over the water, falling ill-timed and missing their target, and now Vagn shouted for heavier weapons, the buggers should get spears; flea bites alone would not fell them!

The Bueson looked back, sweat pouring into his eyes, and Arnulf suddenly remembered the two seas that broke the bow on Denmark’s northern tip. Soon, very soon, the warring would run stakes through each other's lives, then the currents would break necks, and water and blood would mix with salt! Behind the shields along the shieldrim short javelins were held ready, grips secured and weight proportioned, while archers scattered, sustaining their shooting, as long as there were still arrows to find on the deck. Death, death and darkness, was a fiery heart ever truly prepared to give up its life for another man's cause? Why were they here, the Danes and the Norwegians, when until recently they had shared a king in brotherhood?

Despite the danger Sigvalde stood far ahead in the dragon, and on the outside of the north flank Bue the Digre’s voice persistently poured splendid spite and curses on their opponents that Svend Silkenhair had to chuckle, shaking his head under the shields. The sweat dripped off Arnulf, and his mouth was as dry as cracked wood. Whoever hesitated, died first. Whoever lost overview, was killed. The enemy, their sight bound, was not dangerous. Blows would not necessarily kill. Agile shield wielding, light foot changes, do not look the enemy in the eye, never cross your legs. The first block was the sword’s, the next the shield’s and lastly his body dodged. It was so easy to remember it all on the banner ground’s evenness, but now sense was failing, the limbs were heavy and stiff and soft, while fear sneaked around the body like a black wolverine hunting for sudden vulnerability. Fenrir! With Fenrir at his back he need not tremble, the wolf should have blood, saturated from Norwegian victims, and just with that thought the jötnar animal’s ears pointed.

Vagn let the heavy weaponry go, and it was not weaklings who cast them, only the strongest arms let go of spears, and they made nice holes in Hakon’s heap of men! Both on the red warrior’s iron whale and on Øgmund the White’s snekke people tumbled over the deck and shieldrims and those ships lying behind drove forward from their need for revenge while the answer immediately rushed the other way, and if the arrows had caused reasonable damage, the spearheads stack much deeper. The sound was obscure, the sight tremble-inducing and the arms stiffened in spite, the nips of Helheim would not stop Svend’s oar strokes! From the snekke Øgmund slung weight into his shaft, Åse’s redress, and how he knew that the bearer of the wolf-shield had been the first to defile only Freyr could answer, the spear caused Arnulf to tumble back over a thwart into The Bueson’s shoulder, its point broken by the shield, deadeningly, releasing a sharp pain in his upper arm.

A short scream escaped his throat, so his jaws bit furiously together, the weight of the shaft pulled the point out of the flesh when the shield tipped, and by Odin's eye was it time to whine! Blood kisses were a warrior’s ornament, Arnulf was up immediately with the Jomsman’s support and his arm obeyed, it was no worse! Svend’s gaze blazed watchfully, but Arnulf snorted, still wielding the shield in both hands, so The Bueson collected himself to follow his row-companions’ oar-pulls and the next bunch of spears struck elsewhere.

The pierced shield was heavy, so Arnulf supported its edge by slanting it against the nearest thwart, to pull out the spear could cause life-threaten exposure. Despite the noise and the cries the blood rushed in his ears, and through the wound his blood was poisoned with an bestial anger, fear gave way, the pain pulled together, now he knew why Ulfhednir cut themselves before battle! Fenrir’s pulse pounded in his temples but Jomsborg’s warrior-will kept madness in an ice-grip, he, who acted in anger during combat, drove the blade in his chest himself!

 Vagn’s men began to rise, rallying along the shieldrim at the foreship, those in front with scale-laid shields, throwing hooks and free sword, and behind them the long spears and broad axes were held ready. Closely, the Norwegians rowed forward, so close that the oars struck each other now and then when the current pulled awry and the iron whale and vassal’s snekke seemed each lay their long side against the skeid’s shieldrim to squeeze the tallow of Vagn’s crew. Bjørn the Bretlander gave the sign from the Black Snekke to attack the blue iron whale from the opposite side and Little Ketil yelled cheerfully from his Blood Fox while Haug and Kjartan clinked axes in their hunger for wounding. Although arrows and spears still flew scattered through the air, both fleets seemed to be making ready for close combat; threats, howls and weapon-roars thundered across the bay like never before, and Sigvalde shouted his last orders, foaming at the mouth. Immense was the strength of the gathered warriors! The water level rose up the fjelds with a crushing pressure, never had greater whales romped along the Norwegian coast, never had such sharp keels clefted the archipelago to strips!

The square on the deck was cramped and the thwarts were treacherous to fight over, much allowance for movement was not made, but the men apparently knew to keep together without clumping. Svend wanted to go to Vagn and let go of his oar. He snatched a stray shield and spear, nodding encouragingly to Arnulf, then in a few leaps he was among the warriors waiting at the bow and stood with one foot on each thwart to be part of the game over his companions’ heads. Arnulf groaned. He was embroiled in a din and if the straps had not been fastened, the helmet would have washed into the neck from sweat. He threw away the broken shield, drew his sword, waiting on trembling knees behind the shield wall. The last armfull of sea water retreated between the forces, while Bjørn howled to Bue's son that he was offering his neck to the enemy and should step down immediately, but Svend stood, and roars and screams put icicles on the ear-piercing noise of weapons, now, now, now! Now the fight against earl Hakon began in earnest!
