War King: Hakon's Saga, Book 3 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
It is AD 954, and a tempest is brewing in the North.
Twenty summers before, Hakon Haraldsson wrested Norway's throne from his murderous brother, Erik Bloodaxe, but he failed to rid himself of Erik's family. Now, the sons of Erik have come to reclaim Erik's realm and avenge the wrong done to their father and their kin.
They do not come alone. With them marches an army of sword-Danes sent by the Danish King Harald Bluetooth, whose desire to expand his realm is as powerful as the lust for vengeance that pulses in the veins of Erik's brood.
Like storm-driven waves, the opposing forces collide in War King, the action-packed sequel to God's Hammer and Raven's Feast.

As a king in his prime he had a Big Ego and a temper that rooked no question by those who had good, valid input. But Hakon just ignored it and got angry if he didn’t like it.
As a king past his physical prime he was obstinate, maudlin at his long time friends getting bumped off, and was back to being a Super Gloomy Gus who forgot just who got him into the kingship (Hint: it wasn’t his poor head work and allowing a family of killers go free, only to have them return to devastate Old Norway and drive back the advance of the Nordic culture.
At the end he was a petty tyrant in all but name.

Like the previous two books of Hakon's Saga, I have found this book so engrossing that, had I not had other commitments, I would have read each at a single sitting.
