Yngvild and Noren have grown up as ordinary kids in a fishing village on the west coast of Skyss. They've learnt to look after themselves in the harsh winters and to look after others. 

In their eighteenth year Noren is one of the taller members of his boats crew. No other member of his crew can row as long as he does. At the annual fishermeet he won the net throwing competition against all comers. 
    
 Yngvild is nicknamed 'the Fierce'. At the age of 14 she helped see off some raiders by bouncing a practice arrow off the helmet of their leader, twice. She's a reserve on the boat crew and looks after the sheep. Yngvild and Noren are more than just friends, her mission is to get Noren to acknowledge this, and then do something about it.
    
The community is lead by Old Bjorn, who is unspeakably ancient, with pure white hair. No-one knows exactly how old he is. Yngvild and Noren have both grown up in his household, Noren being a foundling.
    
Fate has other plans. Noren is not the foundling he believes that he is. Secrets kept for nearly two decades are about to be revealed, and the consequences may be international. Who knows what will happen when Yngvild and Noren find out their true heritage...
