From the publisher:


In this novel, Thor Vilhjálmsson delves into the past: the 13th century classic, Sturlunga Saga. Sveigur paints a picture of the life of a poet who is born a pauper, raised by monks and later becomes retainer to a powerful chieftain, and witnesses the harshest civil war in Iceland in the 13th century.
