It's been a while since we last heard of the high deeds of Finn, so it is a delight to bring to you today a wonderful legend! This is a story of hope, but for Vivionn who comes so close to freedom, only tragedy awaits.

This might be the concluding episode of the saga, but that does not mean there is a shortage of slayings, raids, burnings, and battles! You will need to listen to find out what happens to Rognvald, Harald and Swein, not to mention other names we have heard of so often throughout the saga. I hope you have enjoyed listening to the adventures of the Earls of Orkney!
