England’s Martyr

1010AD: England is dying, its people brutalised and its lands ravaged after wave after wave of Norse invaders. King Ethelred does little but sit on his throne, haunted by his troubled past and easy prey for his manipulative advisors, leaving his subjects to fend for themselves. Unwilling to stand by and do nothing, a famous Ealdorman, Ulfcytel of Eastengle, has gathered an army, ready to fight and die rather than capitulate to the latest invader: a brutal “Jomsviking” warlord known as Thorkell the Tall. To Ulfcytel’s surprise, his army is soon joined by a stranger from the south, Alaric, who has rushed to assist him in the hope that England might finally prevail. Unbeknownst to Alaric and Ulfcytel, their efforts to save their people have gained the attention of their disturbed and ill-advised king, setting in motion a chain of events that they, and all England, can only hope to endure.

VIKING: The Plains of Althing

Get your Viking on! The Plains of Althing will immerse you in the lives of long-ago Icelanders, a big, epic saga with an ensemble cast of characters: Kel, on the verge of betraying his brutal employer, and Aldis, the woman he loves–who loathes Kel. You’ll feel the anguish of an enslaved Moroccan father who must make an agonizing decision, and you’ll root for a lonely, fearful widow struggling to find the courage to live. They all, inexorably, are drawn by one man’s arrogance and greed towards an Althing where Kel and Aldis must do battle—and face their deepest fears. The Plains of Althing is the start of a sprawling four-book series that will take you to the edge of the world–and back to a country in mortal chaos. Read on!

Meet Katie Aiken Ritter

Two decades of working in tech ended abruptly by an…encounter?…with Viking entities, who insisted I write a story that flashed in front of my eyes. I knew little about Iceland or the Viking era, but the request felt so compelling I had to accept, and took on the task. Four books later, I feel as if I know them, in all their strengths and weaknesses: humans, just like us, who sometimes found themselves in impossible circumstances—and yet had to struggle forward. I hope their story resonates with you.

Rescued by the Alien Viking

A hunky alien from a barbaric race. A human so desperate to flee her planet that she enrols in the Vikingr mail order bride program.

What could possibly go wrong?

The Earth is a desolate wasteland, taken over by space snakes determined to kill off humankind one woman at a time. However, there is one option in order to be free of the wretched place: agree to become a mail order bride for the fierce breed of Vikingr aliens.

Tora is so desperate to leave the treacherous planet that she signs up to marry an alien that she has never actually met. Ragnex is just happy to finally be involved in something more than work.

It seems like a good idea to Tora at first—even if the Vikingr have a certain reputation for being a brutal race. Known throughout the universe as fierce and battle-hungry, it is a ruse that these aliens are determined to keep in order to protect their planet from further plundering.

But, can Tora chip away at Ragnex’s harsh exterior to find the man beneath the beast?
