She Wolf

Publisher: Chicken House

Ylva is crouching at the edge of the snowy forest when she hears her mother cry out from inside the trader’s hut.

Paralysed with fear, she watches as a huge tattooed man and his companion emerge from the hut. The man has only three fingers on one of his hands. His sword is dripping with blood.

Seared by grief, Ylva vows to avenge her mother’s death but, armed only with an axe, what chance does a young Viking girl have against a band of pillaging outlaws?

Intense and compelling action from the very first page will draw readers in to Ylva’s story of survival, revenge and redemption in the brutal winter landscape of Northumbria AD 866.

Suffused with tales of the Norse gods, ongoing conflict between warring Vikings and resentful Anglo-Saxons, and Ylva’s very personal journey through despair to hope, this is another stunning and original read from a master storyteller.
