The Danes have been defeated but the English triumph is not fated to last long. The Danish Vikings quickly invade and occupy three of England s four kingdoms and all that remains of the once proud country is a small piece of marshland, where Alfred and his family live with a few soldiers and retainers, including Uhtred, the dispossessed English nobleman who was raised by the Danes. Uhtred has always believed that given the chance, he would fight for the men who raised him and taught him Viking ways. But when Iseult, a powerful sorceress, enters his life, he is forced to consider feelings he s never confronted before and discovers, in his moment of greatest peril, a newfound loyalty and love for his native country and ruler.

As the last unvanquished piece of England, Wessex is eyed hungrily by the fearsome Viking conquerors. Uhtred, a dispossessed young nobleman, is tied to the imperiled land by birth and marriage but was raised by the Danish invaders—and he questions where his allegiance must lie. But blood is his destiny, and when the overwhelming Viking horde attacks out of a wintry darkness, Uhtred must put aside all hatred and distrust and stand beside his embattled country’s staunch defender—the fugitive King Alfred.
