Thorfinn spent his childhood with the mercenary crew, improving his skills on the battlefield among the Danes, where killing is just another pleasure in life.

One day, when Askeladd receives news that the Danish Prince Canute has been taken hostage, he slips into an ambitious plan: one that will determine the next King of England and drastically change the lives of Thorfinn, Canute and his own.

It's a haven for battle-mad hell and the rest of those who live in it.
