When raiders come to Daelfjord, Frida is taken away from her home and everyone she’s ever known, doomed to a life of slavery. Although she belongs to Agnarr, lord of Groenthjal, she can’t seem to escape the attention of Deagal, the town’s resident magician. Sparks fly as their personalities clash, but it is eventually Daegal who helps her escape from the raiders.
The magician has his own plans for Friday’s newfound freedom, however, and it isn’t for her to return home to Daelfjord. Instead, he is convinced that her very existence was prophecized and that she will be instrumental in battling the evil forces coming from the Borderlands. All Frida wants is to return home, to her comfortable life of healing the sick and wounded, but it seems that fate has other plans for her. Will she eventually get what she wants? Or will she only trade Agnarr’s slavery for Daegal’s control?
