In a world devastated by plague, Torvi and her sister Morgunn can only rely on each other. So when Morgunn is captured by a pack of terrifying wolf-priests, Torvi knows she’ll do whatever it takes to get her back – or die trying.
Torvi will face dark magic and danger on her quest to save her sister. She’ll encounter sea witches, magical night markets and a mythical sword with untold powers.
And she might just discover a life of adventure and wild freedom that’s more glorious than she ever dreamed of.
