Eadric Streona's bastard son trains among Vikings and watches as his father's killer, Canute the Great, gains power beyond England and the Baltic Seas. Godric reenters the English court and attempts to gain King Canute's trust. He serves his greatest enemy so that he may understand why his father died and avenge him to the fullest. But will King Canute's death be enough to fulfill him?
Godric is the bastard son of Eadric Streona, spurned by Eadric’s wife and promised nothing by society. At a young age his life is steeped with murder, loss, and betrayal. Godric seems destined for a life of exile and insignificance, but he swears to avenge his father’s death, no matter what the cost.
Living under the roof of Thorkell the Tall, he learns to become a Jomsviking. The life of a warrior brings Godric comfort, but his hunger for vengeance remains. He finds a new identity for himself and successfully reenters the royal court, where he initiates his plans of assassination. As success grows closer, however, he finds himself hurting the people he loves more than the man that he hates. He watches himself become his own worst enemy, and can only hope to change his ways before he tears his own world apart.
