The Slayer Rune is a historical action-adventure with supernatural elements, and the first installment in the Viking Series.

Norway, year 967 AD. Young Sigurd, the chieftain's son, is in love with Yljali, a beautiful, exotic thrall girl. Helgi Blackbeard, the king's captain-of-arms, has also discovered Yljali's beauty, and wants to possess her. But Helgi is not the only one Sigurd has to watch out for. His own father, Harald the Chieftain, is casting exceedingly lustful glances in Yljali's direction.

The secrets of the runes are revealed to Sigurd, and he is promised a very special sword to help him fight his first battle. But his actions set off a chain of events that no one is able to control.
