Summary
Ragnvald Eysteinsson, the son and grandson of kings, grew up believing that he would one day take his dead father's place as chief of his family's lands. Betrayed and left for dead by men in the pay of his greedy stepfather Olaf, and rescued by a fisherman, Ragnvald is determined to have revenge, claim his birthright and the woman he loves, and rescue his beloved sister Svanhild from a forced marriage. He pledges his sword to Harald of Vestfold, the strong young Norse warrior rumored to be the prophesied king. His choice will hold enormous consequence in the years to come

Summary
Surviving his stepfather's plot to have him killed during a raiding voyage, Ragnvald Eysteinsson vows to seek revenge and reclaim his stolen birthright. The young warrior pledges his loyalty to Harald of Vestfold, a king determined to unite Norway under his rule, while Ragnvald's sister Svanhild, faced with an arranged marriage, must make a difficult decision about her future. This 1st of a projected trilogy presents an exciting Viking saga with appeal for fans of Cecilia Holland's Corban Loosestrife novels or Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Stories. -- Description by Gillian Speace
