Blog Tour ~ The Line of His People by C.J. Adrien


Available on Amazon UK and Amazon US

France, 799 A.D. The Northmen sacked the monastery at dawn, before anyone had awakened. They burned the village and slaughtered all who stood in their path. The relics of Saint Philbert were lost, and the island was abandoned by those who once dwelled there. Years later, the monk Abriel - survivor of the same attack as a young boy - is sent to recover the relics to help restore the reputation and legitimacy of Saint Philbert. What he discovers on his journey changes his life forever. Northmen had colonized the island in the absence of the monks. They hold the key to finding the relics, but they have greater plans for Abriel, plans that will take him to the North to find his destiny.

Although I know little about the period and this book is clearly aimed at the younger reader, the author's knowledge shines through to create an evocative picture of a savage time in history.

Fast-paced, with a complex plot, we follow the main character of Abriel, a  young priest orphaned by the Vikings, on a life-changing journey, with enough suspense to keep a discerning reader guessing.

Convincingly written and supported by a cast of Viking raiders and all-knowing witches, I'm happy to recommend The Line of His People and hope this book will encourage readers new to historical fiction.
