Ants in the Sun

A novel by Jefferson P. Webb

A Viking nobleman seeks to find a renewed sense of purpose and honor after a disastrous raiding campaign. spending time with an old hermit that will not reveal his name,but nevertheless is clearly a former Viking warrior of great renown, Angus Ovarssen takes up the challenge of service as a Varangian Guard officer in the Christian Byzantine Empire. Once again he engages in brutal warfare and sees the horrors of Dark Age warfare.

Ants in the Sun is filled with excitement, bold and daring adventure, passionate love and romance, personal growth, and the horrors of Dark Age combat. This is a must read for readers desiring a book not only filled with action, but a book that is deeply riveting and brings to life the human nature and character of the people of the time period in which it is set.

Do you see those things scurrying along the ground?We are nothing more than those. Like ants in the sun we go about the land. We maintain our own kind and fight others. We gather food and create offspring. There is nothing before this life and nothing after it. We are ants in the sun…”

    As someone who has read Ants in the Sun, or at least the manuscript of it, I would saw that it was an absolute joy to read. It had a very well developed story to it. I thought that it kept enough options open to prevent it from becoming predictable, and that the main character went through a very realistic journey of life. I can say that as I read this book I was constantly surprised both by the plausibility of the story and its historical accuracy. If you are a lover of historical fiction, or a good viking story then I must wholeheartedly recommend Ants in the Sun.
