(From the publisher):
Winter closed like a fist of ice across the country the Norsemen called Markland, and with it came hunger and fear and the deadly threat of the starving forest beasts. But even greater was the threat of marauding savages.
Only the steel-hard will of Erik Ravenhair and the sword-skill of his Norse followers brought them through to the spring, and the long journey home to Norseland. Along the whale road they sailed, risking the wrath of the Ice Giants and eternal mist, only to find desolation waiting for them. Their homes were ravaged, burned by the raiding Irish. And Erik's father, Ragnar Ironsides, was a prisoner of the most feared raider of them all, Cullain na Droigh.
Erik Ravenhair vowed an oath: Cullain would die, his skull shattered on the edge of Erik's war axe.
