Outline

Leif awakens in Mariam’s lodgings, having been rescued from the cold, and discovers that she is terminally ill. Harald meets with Gestr, a slaver, and agrees to protect his boat on the journey to Constantinople but must first find a crew. He recruits the warrior Kaysan, con man Batu and the blind Pecheneg Kurya who can guide them along the Dnieper river. Leif invites Miriam to join them whilst Vitomir and his supposed servant Eleana join the crew carrying a precious silver chest. Together, the crew leave Novgorod on a sled but shortly after beginning their journey, one of Gestr’s slaves dies from the cold. In London, Emma discovers that Aelfwynn, one of her ladies-in-waiting and Godwin’s lover, is the sister of the assassin and that Godwin has proposed marriage. In Jomsborg, many of the pagan refugees whose ancestors aren’t from Jomsborg are forced into labour as Harekr goes raiding, leaving his nephew Jorundr in charge. Hrefna, a young girl who idolises Freydís, is tricked by Jorundr to journey alone to a nearby boneyard to prove her worth. Freydís finds Hrefna injured and defends her from a wild boar, before returning her home.
