After the destruction of their village by a tyrannical king, Thyra and her father flee their homeland with a small band of survivors including severely wounded kinsman Bjorn. While pursued by the king’s best warriors, Thyra’s feelings for Bjorn deepen, and she realizes his injuries are too deadly for her herbal skills to cure.
In a race for refuge and healing, they encounter Magyar fighters, medieval royalty, a Sami tribe, and even a pod of friendly dolphins. When Thyra’s father becomes ensnared by their enemies, Thyra must do the unthinkable in a desperate attempt to save him and her people.
