The 10th-century Nordic lands are locked in a war between the Norse gods and Christianity. Sigrid, a
chieftain’s daughter and devout follower of the old gods, is being offered as a peace bride to secure a profitable alliance. Through nightly visions provided by the goddess Freya, Sigrid learns of
her destiny: to give birth to the king who will unify the Vikings and Saxons. But danger lurks in every shadow, threatening to destroy this future.
Across the Baltic Sea, Sweyn seeks
acknowledgement from his father, the King of Denmark, who raped his mother and soiled her reputation. Now a well-regarded Viking warrior, Sweyn journeys to his father’s land for
restitution. Once there, he’s captivated by the beauty of Sigrid, who is passing through to her future home. Sigrid, however, is shocked to discover Sweyn is the man from her visions, the father
of her son, whom she assumed was her betrothed. Uncertainty plagues Sigrid until she meets Emma. During a Viking attack on the monastery where she lived, Emma is saved from death by the Norse gods
and becomes host to a powerful spirit sent to protect Sigrid and her unborn child.
