About this audiobook

For as long as she can remember, Katje has dreamed of adventure and exploring faraway lands. The myths of the shield-maidens sparked her curiosity as a young girl — tales of strong, independent women that fought alongside the other Viking warriors and sailed on the open seas. After escaping an arranged betrothal to a much older man, she lands in the village of Fjallen, where women aren’t permitted to join the ranks. Katje is forced to sit back and watch from the sidelines; working as a fishmonger and pining for one particularly handsome raider from afar.

Posing as a man, Katje is able to finally serve, fight and sail, though she soon finds that her freedom comes at a price. Though her outward appearance is masculine, inside, Katje still has the heart and desires of a woman, and she can’t deny the feelings that surface for Ingmar, her friend and fellow man-at-arms. Ingmar is unlike anyone else in their raiding party — beautiful and brimming with humor and joy, even during their darkest times. Katje finds it harder and harder each day to mask her true feelings for Ingmar, but when her morals are pushed to their final limit, it takes everything for Katje not to reveal her true self. No matter what, she must keep her identity secret or she’ll risk losing her freedom, her will to fight and possibly the love of a fellow warrior and friend.
