Norway ​785 AD. It began with the betrayal of a lord by a king…

His kin slain, his village seized and its people taken as slaves, Sigurd wonders if the gods have forsaken him. Hunted by powerful men, he is unsure who to trust and yet he has a small band of loyal followers at his side. With them – and with the help of the All-Father, Odin – he determines to make a king pay in blood for his treachery.
