“What Rick Riordan did for the Greek Gods, Fajardo has done for Beowulf: maginficent!” – Kirkus starred review
Book One: The Blood-Bound Oath
This is the origin story of twin brothers Beowulf and Grendel, separated at birth and reunited by an extraordinary family: their grandfather, the imperious King Hrothgar; their monstrous (but loving) mother, Gertrude; their fire-ghost of a father, and their other grandfather – the towering, one-eyed Dragon whose bloodline links them all in their ancient home of Daneland. Oh yeah, there’s also a pig and a talking sword! The series begins here as Beowulf and Grendel discover their past and their destiny.
