The Children of Ribe is a Viking Saga for children bringing the culture and mythology of the Danish Vikings to life. The book series has been influenced by Enid Blyton, Arthur Ransome, Susan Cooper, J R R Tolkien and C. S. Lewis.

Based in Denmark during the time of the Vikings, these books are tales of magic and danger that are suitable for children from the ages of seven and up to read on their own but also perfect for people to read to children from the age of 4.

The Children of Ribe is a modern fairy tale that brings elements of Danish folklore and mythology to life mixed with elements of Viking culture. These books have been designed to help children with dyslexia to read. You can watch author C.S. Woolley talking about dyslexia and reading from FATE, book 1 in the Children of Ribe series here: https://youtu.be/EcnKLKa5c98

Whether you are interested in Vikings, studying them at school, or are simply shopping for the perfect gift for your favourite bookworm, the Children of Ribe series is just what you are looking for.

It has been a day of excitement and squealing in the Mightier Than the Sword UK offices today. You may think there is nothing new there as we work in a world of books where geeks roam freely, but today has been a time when there has been a lot more squealing than normal.

The reason for all the squealing and excitement is that the photography of the completed arm rings of Yngvar has arrived and, well judge for yourself how beautiful it looks.

bt_bronze_bracelets

We will admit that after the initial moment of awe had come and gone, the only person who kept squealing was C.S. Woolley, but it isn’t every day that you see the magical inventions of your imagination carefully crafted in bronze and ready to ship. (There is now a theory floating around that C.S. Woolley might actually be Sauron and that the arm rings are a cunning plot to enslave the world and plunge all the lands into a second darkness – we’ll keep you posted on that one).

But here is a closer look at each with a run down of which arm ring belongs to which book and how much you can get your very own arm ring for. Each has been crafted from solid bronze and made by hand using traditional Viking methods.

Thor’s Hammer Arm Ring

bt_thorshammer_bracelet_bronzeThis particular arm ring belongs to Erland and is guarded by the Disir, Aldis. Found in the cave close to the town of Lindholm, it is the first arm ring to be found and claimed. It is discovered in FATE.

Price: £30

UK Delivery: Free

International Delivery: £2.95

WIFRITH Arm Ring Gift Set: £35 (includes a paperback and digital copy of WIFRITH and the Wolf Head Twisted Arm Ring)
