She does not know her own strength
"Great story, totally unputdownable! A story that drew me in from the start. I felt like this was a dear friend telling me about her life and found it hard to put the book down. It's hard to find good reads on Voelva magic - this is one for sure." ~ Graureiher
"I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about the Viking era. This author has an uncanny way of drawing you into the character's world. I thoroughly enjoy reading this saga." ~ Carla
In Viking Scandinavia in the ninth century, life is a matter of both fate and will. The gods smile on the brave, but the world holds plenty to fear. Heroes choose to be bold, and this is the story of a heroine.
The Danish girl, Signy, grows up fearless and a little wild. When she is ripped from the life she knows, she believes all she wants is to find a way back home, but the Norns (the goddesses of fate in Norse mythology) know better. They want her to stop hiding her own strength, and they use every choice she makes to bring her closer to knowing her true self. Fate will not be denied.
Events take the young Signy to the bustling market town, Birka, in the land of the Svear. The temperamental town völva, a Norse shamanic witch and healer, now owns her. On her first day in town, Signy already makes her first enemy, and more follow. Blinkered by her desire to find a way home, Signy is slow to spot both the dangers and the opportunities of her new life.
Will Signy sort friend from foe? Will she find a way to get back to her family? Will her strength hold? How will she even survive?

“These books walk the tight rope of historical reality and magical story telling, while making it look easy. The storyline grabs you from the beginning and keeps you wanting to know more. The author’s understanding of the period and gift for words submerges you in a realistic picture of the pre-christian viking world that leaves you with all the sights, sounds and smells even after the last word is read.” ~ naomi
