Publisher's Summary

Nominated for a 2018 Audie Award, Best Female Narrator!

A peace that must be defended. A vow that must be broken.

It is the final decade of the ninth century. The Peace between Wessex and the Danes long-settled in the Danelaw erodes. A new onslaught of Danes attacks Angle-land, trying once and for all to destroy ælfred. Ceric of Kilton, now a young man, travels across Kingdoms to visit his friend, Hrald of Four Stones - and to see Ashild, whom he desires for his wife. But renewed hostilities threaten Ceric's hopes for deeper ties between strongholds.

And hundreds of leagues away on the Baltic island of Gotland, Hrald's father, Sidroc the Dane, must defy his Gods. The revered Hammer of Thor. The sacred Cross of the Christians. And the conflict that pits two beliefs, two great war-chiefs, and three young people against each other. A new generation beckons you....  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

This series needs another book.

I enjoyed the series, however I feel like the story is left untold, and needs another book.

Riviting

I'm going to have a very hard time finding another read in the interim. Octavia has outdone herself with this instalment. Nano Nagle is amazing in bringing these characters to life!
