The Vikings had killed Ailill's parents, raped his sister and kidnapped him. Stripped of his family, his home, his faith and his freedom, he saw no future but slavery. Then he was mistaken for a priest and rescued by the Norwegian noble Erling Skjalgsson. Now "Father" Ailill must face the dangers of life in a hostile land, the enmity of those who cling to the old gods, and the political turmoil of a nation being born.
