Prince. Mercenary. Exile. The lost throne of Norway must be won in foreign lands. 1030 AD. Some men are gifted a crown. Others have to fight to claim it. Exiled from Norway, Harald Sigurdsson, brother to murdered King Olaf, must battle mercilessly for survival in the lands of the Kievan Rus. His brother's legacy gifts him a warband of hardened warriors and entry to the court of Prince Yaroslav the Wise. By his wits, sword and skill in battle, Harald must learn not just to survive but to triumph. He fights for glory, for fame, and to regain his family's battle-stolen throne. But his greatest challenge may not come from battlefield foes but from those who stand by his side.
