Northumbria 866. Washed ashore on a frozen English beach, Ylva has survived. She will not cry. She's meant to be strong. She's a viking.

But when her mother dies at the hand of a three-fingered man, and the wolves of the forest circle closer, Ylva will need more than the memory of her mother's stories to stay alive. Can she shape her own legend? Will it end in revenge - or is there another way?

A startlingly original, emotional and compelling adventure set in the dark ages . . .
