It was once the easiest direction open to them. His middle sank as Ragnak shook his head. Even Erak’s lips have been compressed right into a skinny, disapproving line. “Abandon Hallasholm to them? ” requested Ragnak.

Halt driven out his backside lip and cocked his head to 1 aspect. “We’ll look to,” he admitted. “But after they cease chickening out to counterattack, we’ll convey our ambush forces out of hiding and hit them from at the back of. If we time it safely, shall we make existence very disagreeable for them. ” The Skandians stood, staring down on the map. Borsa, Lorak and Ulfak had clean appears to be like as they attempted to imagine the move. Erak and Ragnak, Halt was once completely satisfied to work out, have been slowly nodding as they understood the belief. “Our top chance,” he persevered, “is to strength them into this kind of engagement that matches your males best—close quarters, hand at hand, each guy for himself.
