Publisher's summary

Blades clash in this prequel to Ubisoft's next hit video game, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Norway. Mid-9th Century CE. Eivor, a Viking warrior, observes a village raided by a neighboring kingdom. Bloodshed and mayhem erupt as she seizes the attack in her own favor—but will her victory be a blessing to her clan or a terrible curse? Elsewhere, another Viking searches for a different kind of prize, one of crucible steel . . .[1]

Plot summary

Eivor Varinsdottir, Tora Auzoux, and Dag Nithisson watched as Kjotve the Cruel's clan lead a raid on a Rygjafylke village. Thinking that this independent village would bow to her father, Eivor barreled into battle, her companions soon following.

One of the attackers, Roscoe, managed to get a few hits on Eivor and revealed that Kjotve had told him of the raid on Eivor's village and how Kjotve himself had killed Eivor's biological father. Unwilling to die on her knees, Eivor cut the man's legs off and left him for dead.

At the end of the battle, Dag was injured and one of the attackers escaped. The village elder approached Eivor, who then claimed the land for King Styrbjorn, jarl of Stavanger. The village elder then drew his sword against Eivor and was quickly killed. The others in the village did not challenge the claim.

Tora noticed that Roscoe was gone, with only a trail of blood remaining. Eivor heard noises coming from a building and went to investigate, asking Tora to make sure the villagers would dress Dag's wound. Inside the building, Eivor found a pale woman with many tattoos, who attempted a feeble attack with a broom, which was quickly avoided.

Though her grasp on sanity was tenuous at best, the attacker revealed her name and position: Gull, slave to Kjotve. Interested by her stories, Eivor decided to take Gull as a gift for her father.

Arriving back at Stavanger, King Styrbjorn was incensed to hear that Eivor had claimed the village, attacking Kjotve's forces. The Jarl also took note of the collar and robes Gull wore and said that she was a prized slave and she would be missed, meaning that Eivor had unwittingly brought disaster and death to Stavanger.

Meanwhile, at Dniester Trail, Bulgar, Sigurd Styrbjornson visited the swordsmith Tekin, looking for a blade of crucible steel. Tekin had such a sword, an Ulfberht blade he had crafted for his brother who was killed by Norsemen for his silks. Tekin and two others attempted to ambush Sigurd, who easily killed Tekin and another but left the youngest alive. Sigurd took the sword, named "Vengeance", as a prize. Knud, Sigurd's cousin, entered the blacksmith shop as the youngest attacker told Sigurd of the "richest man alive" as a plea for their life.
