This is an auction for WHO'S AFRAID OF BEOWULF? by Tom Holt.

"Part slapstick, part fantasy, this tale of a Viking king and his band of 12 warriors coming back to life in 20th century Scotland is all entertainment. Hrolf Earthstar was engaged in battle with a wicked sorcerer-king when his wizard advised him to take his band underground - literally. Twelve hundred years later, young archaeologist Hildy Frederiksen enters their burial mound and wakens the men to all sorts of modern mischief. Hrolf's ancient enemy is now the head of a multinational corporation, where technological advances are just another twist on the old sorcerer's magic. Hrolf, his wizard and Hildy stalk the sorcerer-king and his henchman, a former timber wolf, in London, while the others clash with modern culture in the Highlands, and the wizard's two energy-eating "chthonic spirits" discover the delights of electricity and nuclear power. With a varied and memorable cast of characters - ancient and modern - Holt ( Expecting Someone Taller ) keeps the one-liners coming fast and furious. Unforced and inventive, his wit will especially delight lovers of Edda and other sagas."
