One morning in 1063, Solveig wakes to find her father gone. He’s left for Constantinople, to join the Viking Guard of Empress Zoe. But he promised to take Solveig – and he’s betrayed her! She won’t just be left behind. So Solveig sets off on her own journey: all the way from Norway to the breathtaking city known as the Jewel of the East. She’ll encounter Viking traders, a ghost-ship, a Russian king, human sacrifices and great battles. Will she live to reach Constantinople – and will she ever see her father again?
