Set in Norway in 876 and 883, this is book 2 in the Sons of Odin series and continues the story of Selia and Alrik begun in Odin’s Shadow. Soon after the story begins, Alrik goes a Viking, leaving his pregnant wife, Selia, in Norway where his brother, Ulfrik still wants her for his own. A thrall both brothers have had as their bed slave gives birth to a son that Alrik claims as his. Once Selia has her own child, she then has two to raise.
The island community is small but offers some interesting characters including those from book 2, such as Ingrid, Selia’s horrid stepdaughter, who, like Selia, is married to one man while loving another, and Selia’s brother who is Ingrid’s love interest. The two young sons that Selia brings to the island come to love Ulfrik as does Selia herself.
