       Additional Information  
      Life in tenth century Norway had never been easy for Tore Nordahldatr. As a woman her life has a limited number of options; but, when a family with a vendetta slaughters her kin, her life changes forever. In order to escape her own death sentence, she must live disguised as a young man until her older brother can return from sea with the Viking chieftain and settle this intertribal dispute. What she doesn't count on is falling in love with the man who befriends her, or unknowingly being taken in and "raised" by the very family who wants her dead. After accidentally taking a sword sacred to the god, Tyr, Tore appeals to the goddess Sif for protection. Sif strikes a bargain with Tyr. If Tore, living as Eirik the Silent Graafell, proves herself worthy of the sword in battle, she will be allowed to live and go free. Even if Tore is able to fulfill her bargain with the gods, dealing with her brother will be another matter. When he returns he wants revenge and he wants blood. Tore pleads for the life of Brock Thorvaldsson. Will her brother let him live? Will Tore be left alone again? Will all turn out right in this world across the Swan Road?
