In this grand saga of love, war, and magic set in the tenth century, young Sigrid is destined to be the mother of the king of the Nordic lands that would become Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and England. A devout believer in the old Nordic gods, Sigrid is visited regularly in her dreams by the goddess Freya, who whispers to her of the future. Though Sigrid is beautiful, rich, arrogant, and matchlessly clever, her uncanny ability to foresee the future and manipulate the present guides her through dangerous politics as a bloody war between Vikings and Christians rages on. Sigrid's father wants her to marry Erik, a local king, to secure the peace between the Goths and the Swedes. Thinking she is doing Freya's will, she accepts the marriage offer, only to find that her destiny lies not with Erik but with Sweyn, a warrior who dreams of dethroning Harald Bluetooth, the legendary ruler of Denmark. Will Sigrid sacrifice her will for the greatest Viking kingdom of all time, or will she follow her heart at the risk of losing everything?

The epic Valhalla saga continues as bloody power struggles sweep across the Nordic lands and a Viking queen's daughter must forge her own destiny. Fearless Queen Sigrid wants her twin children to fulfill their destinies: her son, Olaf, to become heir to the kingdom of Svealand, and her gifted daughter, Estrid, to secure passage to the underworld as she is promised to Hel, the Norse goddess of death. But Olaf's ascension to the throne depends on Sigrid's former husband, King Erik the Victorious, who despises her and suspects the twins are not his but Sweyn Forkbeard's, Denmark's exiled king. As long as the Danish throne is in question, Christian kingdoms and pagan clans battle for control. As Sigrid and her people await Erik's return from war, a cross-worshipper is taken captive, whose strange power over Estrid sways her to question her al-legiance to the death goddess. When Estrid is kidnapped, Sigrid vows to rescue her--at any cost.

This dazzling debut brings the Dark Ages to light and illuminates one Saxon noblewoman's romance with a Viking warrior and her struggle to find her path in a changing and dangerous world 869. For eighteen years, Avelynn, the beautiful and secretly pagan daughter of the Ealdorman of Somerset, has lived in an environment of love, acceptance, and equality. Somerset has flourished under twenty years of peace. But with whispers of war threatening their security, Avelynn's father makes an uncompromising decision that changes her life forever. Forced into a betrothal with Demas, a man who only covets her wealth and status, Avelynn's perception of independence is shattered. With marriage looming, she turns to her faith, searching for answers in an ancient ritual along the coast, only to find Alrik The Blood-Axe and sixty Viking berserkers have landed. In a year of uncertainty that sees Avelynn discover hidden powers, stumble into a passionate love affair with Alrik, and lead men into battle, Avelynn must walk a fine line as her deceptions mount and Demas' tactics to possess her become more desperate and increasingly brutal. Avelynn and Alrik are caught in the throes of fate as they struggle to find the way back to themselves and onwards to each other.

The fate of the world as we know it rests in the hands of an unwitting teenage witch and her overweight cat. In present-day Portland, the Norse gods are alive and well, and hiding in plain sight: Odin is a high school principal, blustering Thor is about to lose his job as a photocopier repairman, and the Norns are operating a psychic hotline—and they and their kin are on the hunt for the newly reincarnated World Tree as they try to prevent Ragnarok. At the same time, sixteen-year-old Sally Dahl is casting rune spells to bring about a better, happier planet, but she instead triggers the return of the legendary Berserker warriors—and their bottomless junk food cravings. When Sally finds herself the victim of her own magick, she inadvertently teams up with a power-grabbing minor deity, Managarm, who wants to capture the Tree for himself and assert his dominion over all. Can Odin rely on a new generation of Vikings—including a marching band and a biker gang—for help? Can Sally fix her magickal mistakes in time to thwart Managarm’s plan—before the Berserkers eat Voodoo Doughnuts out of business?

Historical fiction is my passion. I so love bringing history to life - the reason I dedicate most of my time to writing historical fiction books! Spring Will Come is the third book in the ongoing Bregdan Chronicles historical novel series. It's readers like you who have turned it into a world-wide best-seller. Thank you! Book Description: As her beloved city of Richmond is transformed into a deadly Civil War battlefield, spirited Carrie Cromwell puts her medical skills to work in a Confederate hospital. While she fights to save unknown soldiers, the one she cares about the most is lost to her when Robert disappears in battle. She must also deal with a family secret that has finally come to light. Meanwhile, Rose and Moses have found freedom at last - only to be separated by war. Can Moses, now a Union spy, elude those who are searching for him as a runaway slave, and also help those he thought he would never see again? Rose, inspired by a revolutionary young speaker, becomes a teacher in the contraband camps. The third book of The Bregdan Chronicles historical fiction series will pull you in and never let you go. You'll experience the Civil War era (and all the years to come) through the eyes of both White and Black, free& slave, Southern & Northern - and you'll fall in love with every character. How many books will be in the Bregdan Chronicles? You'll have to ask God about that...I intend to write these character's stories, one year at a time, for as long as I'm able to write. I'm passionate about bringing history to life through historical fiction. Since I'm amazingly healthy, that could be for a very long time! I don't like stories to end any more than you do. This one won't end for a very long time! Review: This review is actually for all six books in the Bregdan Chronicles written by Ginny Dye. I smiled, I cried, I hoped along with everyone. This was a series I was glad to be reading on Kindle because I could easily pull a map, or research one of the locations, or Chimborazo Hospital where Janie and Carrie gave their time. The books are a perfect blend of history, and the representation of what the people of that time may have suffered and lived through. I just finished number 6 and will not comment in case someone hasn't read it. What I will say is "Glimmer of Change"#7 are you ready to be read, or still in process? Thank you for sharing your gift with us. Review: I have finished book 3 and can hardly wait to start book 4! the characters are so real, the historical events are so captivating, the moral values and reality of what happened to our country during the civil war - make for excellent reading. This is historical fiction at its best - a 5 star book!

Completed in 1958, and not published until 1990 due to Soviet censorship, Daniel Andreev reviewed and summarized the entirety of world progress, calling it a meta-philosophy of history. In the centuries ahead he saw calamities to envelop the world, to be culminated by the reign of Rose of the World. This is an international movement unifying the best of all religious and philosophic teachings, and a worldwide Federation of governments, harmonically regulating economic and social movements in the interests of the spiritual development of a person. Rose of the World will install a genuine golden age in our world and abolish poverty, tyranny, war, and violence. Daniel Andreev at the same time had visions of other worlds, both subterranean and celestial, and recorded them, with the struggle between good and evil, and the progress of humans for the goal of moral perfection. A New Translation of selections from the Russian into English by Daniel H. Shubin, for the American Reader.
