700 AD – a time of epic battles and bloodshed. Northern Europe is divided into two different worlds: above the rivers are the Frisians, the Saxons and the Danes. Below the rivers, the Franks hold sway. The Franks want to do what even the Romans never managed: conquer all of Europe, and they are deploying a new weapon to subjugate the heathens: Christianity.
Uniting a Viking army, Frisian warrior Redbad returns to his home soil to defend his people and battle Lord of the Franks, Pepin of Herstal. Rise of the Vikings is a quality historic saga based on ancient legends.
