At the very end of the ninth century, Vikings and Bretons faced each other on each side of the Visnonia, the river in south-east Brittany.
Two peoples, two armies, two soldiers, two men, ready to fight each other in a fury of metal and fire. But for what? For greater wealth? To hold more land? Loyalty to a leader? Or because there is no other choice?
While the weapons are being sharpened and strategies developed, while the fears grow, the spirit of a mysterious little girl flies over the battlefield and creeps into the belligerents’ souls, trying to shape another fate from that sought by the warriors.
After some years of being active on the music scene, as an instrumentalist, producer, record dealer and guitar teacher, Jérôme Nédélec turned to writing. Drawing on his enthusiasm for History, archeology, myths and imaginary worlds, his writing is strongly influenced by popular culture. He organizes literary cafes and writing workshops and regularly gives lectures on the links between the Vikings and Brittany.
