National bestselling author David McCaleb delivers a thriller like none other, opening our eyes to a realm ever present, but thinly veiled.

A World Not His Own…

Michael is suddenly drawn back in time by the spirit of his dead sister to the age when Vikings ventured to North America. He finds himself in the body of a Norseman and a member of a raiding party tasked with rescuing their chieftain’s kidnapped daughter. He soon discovers a chilling link between her and his own world. In his journey back to the present, he battles warring natives, shapeshifting demons, and the insecurities of his past.

A World Torn Apart…

Kiona, the daughter of a powerful Mi’kmaq shaman, struggles against her deceitful mother whose actions threaten the peace between her tribe, their Abenaki neighbors, and the newly arrived Vikings. Will she choose to remain loyal to her tribe, or instead to help Michael free his Viking sister?

VESTMEN’S GALE is a story of sacrifice, redemption, and purpose.

From the Author

“This is my best work yet. It is intensely personal because my daughter and I crafted the plot together. The characters ran around in my mind until they shook its bars and demanded to be let out. I’m glad I did. In fact, the urge was so strong this story was the only one I could’ve written.

“This book takes place in a new world, with new characters, and in a new genre. If I had to classify it, it’d be historical paranormal thriller. To all my faithful readers, Vestmen’s Gale packs the same action as my prior works. Take it from one Goodreads reviewer who said, “Wow…never thought this would be my thing, but it got me hooked from the first page.” You won’t be disappointed. For those looking for more than just an enjoyable tale, neither will you. If inquisitive enough, a story much deeper than the words on the page will be revealed. Enjoy!”
