Bjorn said in a small dead-level voice: 'If that ever happens to me, I wonder if I shall tell them what they want to know.'

It is the Vikings' fierce determination never to betray the whereabouts of their Lake District stronghold which enables them to resist the Normans' brutal attacks.  But as warriors from young Bjorn's village are captured and tortured, he wonders if he too will be able to maintain their 'Shield Ring'.

Along with Frytha, the orphaned Saxon girl who sought refuge in the village, Bjorn is destined to play a vital role in the Vikings' survival and his courage is tested to the limit in this brilliantly compelling adventure story, published here for the first time in paperback.
