In this grand saga of love, war, and magic set in the tenth century, young Sigrid is destined to be the mother of the king of the Nordic lands that would become Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and England.

A devout believer in the old Nordic gods, Sigrid is visited regularly in her dreams by the goddess Freya, who whispers to her of the future. Though Sigrid is beautiful, rich, arrogant, and matchlessly clever, her uncanny ability to foresee the future and manipulate the present guides her through dangerous politics as a bloody war between Vikings and Christians rages on.

Sigrid’s father wants her to marry Erik, a local king, to secure the peace between the Goths and the Swedes. Thinking she is doing Freya’s will, she accepts the marriage offer, only to find that her destiny lies not with Erik but with Sweyn, a warrior who dreams of dethroning Harald Bluetooth, the legendary ruler of Denmark. Will Sigrid sacrifice her will for the greatest Viking kingdom of all time, or will she follow her heart at the risk of losing everything?

***Cianna – #NerdGirlSunshine’s  Review***
Really outstanding book! Sigrid is such an inspiring women and goes on a journey to become the best she can be. She is young and naive at the beginning of this book, and by the end, she is strong and smart. She has proved herself and saved her life and the lives of many others. If you have an interest in Norse mythology, then you should read this book. The dedication to the Gods and Goddesses was inspiring and the ties to history really made the book grounded and engaged in the story. I cannot wait for the next book. I need to see what comes next because I want Sweyn and Sigrid to be together, and rule together! Here’s to hoping!
