At not quite fifteen, Stefan’s father finally let him board the longship Sja Vinna to take part in his first Viking raid. Yet, the battle was not at all what he expected and he soon finds himself alone and stranded in Scotland.
Thirteen-year-old Kannak’s problem is just as grave. Her father deserted them and the only way to survive, she decided, was to take a husband over her mother‘s objections. Suddenly she is helping a hated Viking escape. Can Kannak successfully hide a Viking in the middle of a Scottish Clan? And why is someone plotting to kill the clan’s beloved laird?
