Catherine was a career ER nurse and is a medical writer and editor publishing over 1000 articles. She feeds her inner Wulfdinn by playing ice hockey and prowling the wild forests and historic sites of Europe and the American West.

After Gerwulf escaped from the Externsteine he decides to forget his past as Wulfhedinn and serve King Karl and Christ in future. His inner battle is shown broadly. He is near the Battle of Sünkel where the Franks are defeated and is also present at the Massacre of Verden. At the Sünkel he tries in vain to avoid defeat and at Verden he also runs against the course of history. And directly at the end his life changes again.
This second book is written more mature than the first. The inner battle between the Heathen wulfhedinn and the Christian scout is even better explained and more believable than in the first. King Karl shows up here less than in the first volume, in fact only as the fierce revenger at Verden. But even then he is no evil tyrant as his reaction is made understandable.
As in the first volume there is no clear distinction between good and evil. Who wants his prejudices confirmed won't love it. Gerwulf at the end does not know also if he really is a Christian or a Heathen, if he is Gerwulf or Wulfhedinn. And again it is left open to the reader's imagination if the wulf demon or the Valkyrie are real or just imagined. Most time you think one way, then another and vice versa.
At the end of the book one question remains: When will we have the next volume?
