At the end of the Viking Age, a young woman's longing for a return to the old bloody ways is answered, but for well or ill remains to be seen. More
The Viking Age is ending. In Iceland, Swanhild longs for those old and bloody days. But the farmsteaders around her have no such longing, and the kings and reavers of the Danelaw, Sweden, and Norway, are voyages away.
Her longing seems to be answered when Skarphedin, outlawed years ago, returns to the island. But the man's reasons for returning are shadowy, his enemies implacable, and trouble follows where he goes.
