Uhtred finds himself tricked into a marriage with Saxon girl Mildrith to pass on a debt owed by her late father and ensure his service to Alfred. When the Danes take the fortress of Werham Alfred declares a truce with hostages on both sides - one being Uhtred to spy on the Vikings and find out their larger plans. Here he meets Brida, who has left the Saxons and is now the mate of Ragmar and it is down to Ragmar that Uhtred is able to escape back to Mildrith and their new-born child. However a large Danish fleet is sailing into Wessex.
