Item description for Prince Of The Lake by Gabriel Strange Roger Butters...
The story of a man who becomes a hero: based on the Norse epic which bears his name, this Saga deals with the early life of the Gothic prince Beowulf Wagmunding, Earl of Slane, and his cousin Athelstan of Karron Tha, called Hawkeye.
According to his half-sister, the mystic Ljani the Red, Beowulf is a reincarnation of the mightiest of all Gothic kings, Bjorn Longspear, the non-pareil Prince of the Lake, and destined for as glorious a future. But this seems unlikely. For Beowulf is a foolish. dreamy youth, scion of a family notorious for double-dealing, and himself the son of a murderer and a whore.
As Beowulf sets out on the journey which will make or break him, he survives the perils of outlaws, monsters and shipwreck before his greatest test of all: battle against the Hellian warriors of the demoniacal Ragnar of Torre, a Son of Muspelheim. Nor are Beowulf's adversaries confined to the forces of Evil; at the end destiny plays him a cruel trick by pitting him in battle against his kinsman and greatest friend, Hawkeye of Karron Tha.
Thus Beowulf begins his progress from amiable nonentity to the greatest of all Gothic warriors, whose name to this day remains synonymous with epic legend and the eternal conflict between Good and Evil.
