Summary:

Sigrid is a Shield-Maiden who yearns to break free of the restrictions of her father's home and join the Sworn Men in an actual raiding expedition. When a small diplomatic party that includes members of the Shield-Brethren lands at her family's holding on Gottland, the party's second in command, Halldor, sees in Sigrid a vision of beauty and power that might challenge - and even destroy - many men. And when bloody chaos ensues at a nearby Viking fishing village, Sigrid proves she has more than mere talent: she has Vor - the fate sight - an astonishing focus in fighting that sets her apart from nearly all who have ever lived and puts her in the rare company of the finest Shield-Brethren. But as Sigrid and her family confront her otherworldly ability, will it prove to be a gift to be celebrated, or an affliction to be cured?
