Brida and Uhtred reach a village whose inhabitants have been massacred in revenge for his supposed murder of Ragmar, strengthening his resolve to avenge himself on his uncle and reclaim his kingdom. In East Anglia they see the fierce Danish warlord Ubba murder pious king Edmund but are forced to run as Ubba also believes Uhtred killed Ragmar. Finally they reach Wessex where Beocca, the Saxon priest he knew as a boy, introduces Uhtred to Alfred, younger brother of king Aethelred. Alfred has an intelligent spy network and aims to unite all the kingdoms into a single England. Anxious to help Uhtred warns him that a Danish force is about to attack Winchester.
