“What Rick Riordan did for the Greek gods, Fajardo has done for ‘Beowulf’: magnificent.”
—Kirkus, starred review, Kid Beowulf: The Blood-Bound Oath
Giants! Elephants! Roller Coasters?
That's just some of the mayhem twin brothers Beowulf and Grendel discover in the second adventure! Banished from their homeland, the brothers seek refuge with their Uncle Holger in far-off France, but by the time they arrive, the kingdom is in shambles: King Charlemagne is ailing; his knights have been exiled; and France's hero, Roland, needs a kick in the pants. It's up to Beowulf and Grendel to unite the country before it's taken over by an invading Saracen horde!
