Quotes

<b>PRAISE FOR RICHARD CULLEN</b>: <br />
'<i>Oath Bound</i> is a terrific novel. Fast-paced and enthralling, the tale of Styrkar the Dane, the Red Wolf, charges along like a Frankish knight bearing down on a defenceless enemy. It's a brutal yet compelling tale, and one that gripped me from the first page to the last. The ending came far too quickly and I am looking forward to seeing what fate has in store for Styrkar as he heads towards an uncertain and dangerous future in the next book' Paul Fraser Collard. <br />
'A perfect example of tight, gritty, character-driven storytelling'
