Just look at that cover art!! And the story lives up to the art!
I have not been able to get into the typical audio book readings. Everyone says that I should listen to books since I like to read so much, I just can’t do it.. But y’all…these are not your typical audio books! These are pretty much like watching a movie in the theater but blindfolded.
There is plenty of action for those action lovers out there.. and yes, there is a lovely story line for the other ones to enjoy..hehehe..
This story starts out around the year 1065. The main character, Wulf is 16 and has gotten himself into a little bit of trouble. Things work themselves out with that, but that’s when all of the interesting stuff begins!
Wulf finds himself working for Earl Harold Godwinson. They are on a boat when it crashes and they are shipwrecked. This starts out the action and really, it doesn’t stop much after that!
This is also where we meet other characters in the story, Beorn, Guy, and Lady Agnes. Beorn and Wulf escape and wait for the return of Harold and his men, as they are being kept in the dungeon. Lady Agnes keeps Beorn and Wulf company while they wait.
A little later in the story, there is a battle. Guy, the son of Baron de Burg, loses an arm.. And ok..if you have watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail, you will appreciate that he says “‘Tis but a scratch”, haha! I appreciated that little bit in that particular scene…
There are wars, invasions, the shipwreck…there is plenty of action in the story, like I mentioned.. There is also a little bit of love as well… Sure, there is love between the male characters in the story, but also with a character named Edith. It’s a different sort of love, love of country perhaps? Also, we find Wulf and Agnes on friendly terms as well..
Alas, I don’t want to give too much away, but even if I told you everything that happens in the story, it would still be like listening to it fresh because the acting, the sound effects, everything..is just so good.
Normally with the Heirloom Audio Productions items we get some bonuses that are included in the Live the Adventure Club. Unfortunately, the items for Wulf the Saxon weren’t ready yet at the time. They do have a one month trial offer going on right now, so if you already aren’t a member, I would definitely check that out! All of their stories are done so well, you could pick any of them and be more than happy!
We love doing extra things with these stories, so we researched a bit about the battles during that time, the weapons, the clothing. It is all quite fascinating and we read way more than I had originally intended because we kept finding more and more!
Of course if you follow us at all, you know we like to draw whenever we can.. So we found different images online and copied them.
This story really has it all, something for everyone! I love that they are historically correct and really want you to learn more about what is going on!
We always love these stories, but feel free to read what others had to say about Wulf the Saxon as well! Click on the banner below!
