It is 922 A.D. The refined Arab courtier Ibn Fadlan is accompanying a party of Viking warriors back to the north. Fadlan belatedly discovers that his job is to combat the terrors in the night that come to slaughter the Vikings--but just how he will do it, Fadlan has no idea....

Well, if I didn't have 8 books coming that Powell's just shipped, I would buy this immediately. This the basis of the movie "The 13th Warrior" starring,among others, Antonio Banderas. As we know most movies can't do justice to a book, this book must be fantastic.
Powell's City of Books is an independent bookstore in Portland, Oregon, that fills a whole city block with more than a million new, used, and out of print books. Shop those shelves — plus literally millions more books, DVDs, and gifts — here at Powells.com.
