Adventure. First in a thrilling historical fiction series about Grim Gruesome, spine-tingling, child-hating, tricksterish Viking villain. Astrid's mysterious uncle lends Bjarni a sword so he can join a pirate ship and win some treasure. The sword is carved with strange rune letters which turn out to be a dangerous curse. It plunges the children into a terrifying adventure - and straight into the clutches of the evil Grim Gruesome! Authentic yet fantastical, crammed with children's favourites: treasure, sword fights and pirates. Fast moving and written in a pity, immensely readable voice.
