Asa is the daughter of a Viking chief whose clan is struggling to survive a never-ending winter. All the able-bodied men head to sea in search of food, leaving behind the children, the elderly, the sick—and Jorgen the skald, the wise man who will stop at nothing to take over the clan. When Asa learns the skald wants to kill and eat her beloved horse, she runs away—but soon realizes she has to return and try to save her mother and clan. And when she meets a strange woman with one good eye, who talks to her two ravens, Asa’s adventures really begin….

Praise For…


"Wilson’s dramatic prose brings to life the harsh conditions of life along the wintry, rocky seashore, Rune’s indomitable spirit and Asa’s fierce determination. Classic storytelling."--Kirkus Reviews



"Although the story takes place over just a few days, Asa matures tremendously, becoming someone capable of sacrificing greatly for the good of her people. Outside of some references to Odin and draugrs, not much places the story as explicitly “Viking,” but the strength of the storytelling should keep readers rapt through the brutal but satisfying conclusion."--Publishers Weekly
