Varangian

By Stuart G Yates

Historical fiction, Thriller, Action & adventure | Paperback, eBook


In the middle part of the eleventh century, the Byzantine Empire dominated the world. The surviving part of the old Roman Empire, its position as the greatest known civilisation remained undisputed. Within the walls of its great capital city, Constantinople, treachery, debauchery and power politics dominated the lives of the ruling elite, as it had in the glory days of Rome. Thrust inside this heady mix, the Viking adventurer Harald Hardrada struggles to survive. A new emperor, the deranged Michael V, spells danger for him, as he becomes a pawn in the jostling for power of the various factions. Can he survive, and in so doing, turn his mind to regaining what is rightfully his — the throne of Norway?



Born on the Wirral, leaving school early, and moving from one dead-end job to the next caused Stuart G Yates to re-valuate his life. He'd always written (his first full novel was submitted in 1979)but with a family to support he returned to school and studied for 6 years to become a teacher. Since then, he has combined teaching history with writing novels, and in 2009 his first book was accepted and published. He's never looked back and continues to create thrilling adventures, both contemporary and historical, stories which have received rave reviews from all those who have read them. He lives in Spain.
