Product Description

“Their garments are black as night. They carry torches in their hands, darkness and anger in their hearts. They are coming.”

When a dark family secret comes to light, Sigrun’s peaceful life is shattered. Forced to pay for her parents’ misdeeds, she finds herself exiled from all she knows – and from the boy she loves – for three long years. But more secrets and changes lie ahead; not least the strange power Sigrun finds awakening in herself, seemingly passed to her from a mysterious amulet. Can she use her new-found gift to save herself and her friends from the dangers they face? And will her true love wait for her return? A gripping Viking tale of betrayal, revenge and romance from the author of The Lady in the Tower.
