(From the publisher):
Seventeen-year-old Hallgerd is known throughout the northern lands for her extraordinary beauty. Gauk is a young man eager to prove himself as a warrior. Together they find their fates intertwined as a series of events take them into danger far from home.
Set in the early Viking era, Daughter of the Wind tells the story of Gauk's experiences as a young beserkir - a fighter who turns into a fierce, crazed warrior when provoked - and the trials of the novel's heroine, Hallgerd, who is kidnapped from her family home. The novel describes an age in which physical force was the law and revenge was a form of justice.
