When eleven-year-old Freya meets Morton--a peregrine falcon who has been stripped of his feathers--in the woods near her home, she has no idea what to make of him. What has happened to this poor creature, and what force has destined that he cross her path?

Before long, Freya and Morton have embarked on an adventure that will take her far, far away from her goatherd father's small house. As the often bad-tempered girl and the once-majestic bird begin to form an unlikely bond, they find themselves at the centre of a battlefield--one that pits old against new, god against mortal, peace against war, pagan against Christian, and brother against brother. Is this the end for the race of Norse gods and goddesses, and the Vikings who fight in their shadows? Or simply the beginning of a bigger story...

In The Feathered Cloak , newcomer Sean Dixon whisks us back to a time part real and part imagined, weaving myth and history into an epic tale for young readers.
