The sun and moon have been devoured by the cosmic wolves Skoll and Hati. Fimbulwinter has envelopped the world in the cold and darkness. Men prey on each other in order to survive. Amid the chaos, in the struggle for the throne, comes a war between brothers.

Hakon, illegitimate heir to the throne of Norveig, has obtained a horn that can summon a terror from the depths of the ocean. This monstrosity has been sinking the vessels of his half-brother, Jarl Erik Bloodaxe. Erik sends a company of untried heroes to infiltrate Hakon’s stronghold, and steal the horn.

As with all things political there are other agendas. Fjorn, the leader of the team, is Erik’s half-brother who could challenge Erik for the throne. Erik's wife Gunnhild is a powerful sorceress with her own ambitions- could her goals derail the heroes?

In life, sometimes a Jarl wins, and other times a Jarl wins.

HORN OF THE KRAKEN tells a vivid, stirring adventure tale that gives the reader a wild ride, but it also features that most enjoyable of reading experiences: characters who leap off the page and seem real, with all of their humor and anger and cutting comments. Great fun! Recommended!

It's a novel set in the Fate of the Norns universe. Horn of the Kraken is a Viking heist, half Ocean's 11 and half Lord of the Rings.

Hi, Stephen. Any chance an ebook version will be released? Either epub or mobi version on here or a Kindle version on Amazon?

Andrew caught this one, but I thought it only right to say Hi. I was in England for a week where I got to visit the Jorvic Viking center in York. Amazing place. Just don't step in the privy.

Any chance you could do mobi as well? I don't seem to be able to convert the Epub file myself.

We didn't have plans for mobi since we don't have a device on which we could check it, but we did find a conversion tool and uploaded a *.mobi file which you can test. Please let us know if it works.

Unfortunately, it's in pretty bad shape. The graphics are all messed up and the text display is horribly indented. It's certainly readable but it's not a very nice experience. I'm surprised you didn't plan for a mobi version as Kindles are very common. I'm sure overall there are probably more epub devices but Kindles still have to be a pretty big percentage.

I was able to convert the mobi version to rtf, replaced the cover jpg with the one from the epub, and converted it back to mobi. It looks a lot cleaner but I lost the table of contents and bookmarks but that's not a big deal. Also the page numbers appear in the middle of the text. I used Calibre to do it if you're interested. I'm not sure what you were using or whether it's better. I hope this helps.

Thanks for the feedback, that's very valuable. We'll try calibre, but our initial exports were through inDesign (plugin). Once we get a cleaner version, we'll update the digital download zip and everyone will be prompted to re-download the new edition for free.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
