Description

You are your father's daughter... A young Viking woman picks up her sword and goes in search of retribution and justice. In 934 the English are fighting the Norse for supremacy over the North. Worship of the old Norse gods is challenged by Christianity. Traditional loyalties are tested and revenge can be swift and violent. In Cumbria a man is outlawed and killed. Faced with a life of destitution and servitude, his daughter Sigrid's only option is to appeal to the King of Norway to reverse his judgement on her father and allow her to inherit the family farm. But Norway is far away and Sigrid has only her wits and her skill with the sword to help her cause. Sigrid sets out to regain her birthright, encountering kings, warriors and villains on her quest. While her fighting skills earn her admiration, she must also learn about duty, honour and loyalty if she is to grow from a headstrong teenager into a woman and a respected warrior.

Author Biography

Born and bred in Sweden, Marianne grew up on stories about the Vikings and their world. She arrived in England to find that most peoples' knowledge about Vikings could be summed up as `rape and pillage'. Marianne tries in her books to give a more nuanced view. She loves the Lake District where the Shieldmaiden trilogy is set. Marianne's poetry and short stories have found their way into various magazines and anthologies but mainly she writes historical adventures with women at the centre of action.
