About the author:
Wolraad J. Kirsten was born in Southern Africa in the early 1980’s where he grew up and went on to pursue his formal education in Film Studies at Kingston University in Surrey, London. He is also a keen student of history, politics and philosophy, which feature prominently in his writings. Apart from novels, his writing also extents to screenplays and he occasionally dabbles in acting. He is an avid traveler and resides in the Far East for the time being.
Here is a short sample from the book:
"Hail Hyperborean!—sired by Mars, mothered by frigid strife, suckled on the teats of war and sustained by the golden mead of conquest. Harken!—the thumder and clanging steel as he comes from atop his glacial fastness. Woe!—red runs his marauding, rapine path; ever southward the unstoppable scourge, and onto gleaming cities—trampling underfoot the flower of their soldiery. Behold!—his heal on the throats of their champion elite. Hence he stands astride the vanquished and wailing land to be crowned the supreme fighting-man of the earth" — Excerpt From Varangian
