A Bird Made Of Fog
The Witch Queens needed Gratillonius to challenge and kill their King and thus to take his place. Gunnhild needs Eirik's men to kill her two Finnish mentors and then to take her to Eirik.
Mother Of Kings, about Gunnhild, is a culmination of Anderson's historical novels containing elements of fantasy and a prequel to The Last Viking, the historical fiction trilogy in which an expedition in search of Jotunheim - visited in an earlier novel - finds only icebergs and whales.
Guests at Eirik's and Gunnhild's wedding consume:
fish cooked with garlic
wheat and rye bread
berries dried and stewed
It is quite a while since we have had a food list on the blog but this wedding is a suitable occasion.
