Somewhere between getting sentenced to death by the king of England, avoiding execution only to be kidnapped by Viking slave merchants, and being robbed of his beloved foster family by a ruthless, power-hungry monarch, Gabriel has become obsessed with revenge. It helps a bit that, during his years of enslavement in Iceland, he was forced to take part in a perverse mimicry of gladiatorial "Roman games" while Vikings made wagers against his survival.

But soon they are tracked down by Matilda's men, and Brylieva allows herself to be captured in hopes of saving Gabriel's life.
