Viking fans (and heathens) take note! Today is the pub date of THE ICE QUEEN     , the second volume in my trilogy, Odd Tangle-Hair’s Saga. Odd’s adventures continue in Russia, where he is ensnared by a scheming princess and battles an invading Pecheneg horde.
“Macbain is such a talented writer and his characters are so compelling…Odd’s world and that of the lands of the Rus, feels alive and vibrant…” (Historical Novels Review for November, 2015).

Tomorrow, May 26, is the official pub date of my new novel, "Odin's Child: Book One of Odd Tangle-Hair's Saga." You may think that Vikings aren't your cup of tea, but take a look at it anyway. It's quite different from what you may Imagine. Odd is "a thinking man's Viking". http://amzn.to/1GyuRdy
