    Summary

    With a wedding comes peace—peace between clans, peace across the mountains, peace in every fjord...
    And chaos within Randvi’s very being.

    When she meets a wolf amid an unkindness of Ravens, she hardly expects the craving to invite such long teeth into the meat of her heart.

    -

    “If he hurts you,” she hisses, her breath warm on Randvi’s ear, “I am too far in drink to keep from striking him.”

    Randvi twists to meet her gaze for an instant, their stares clashing. She wets her lips with a nervous dart of her tongue and finds strength in the hungry way Eivor tracks it. “Stand near and let me look at you, and it will be smoother for me.”

    She does not linger to see the slight widening of Eivor’s eyes at that, the flare of her nostrils and the clenching of her jaw. Randvi turns and follows her husband to their bridal couch to the wingbeat cadence of her racing heart.

    Summary

    Every saga comes to an end. The last runesign carved, the final silver-tongued phrase spoken, the closing breath let out from victorious lungs as a hero's story closes.

    But those sagas do not always finish with high glory and soaring, glittering death. Sometimes the end is quiet, a contented sigh or the whisper of a loving touch brushing across very, very tired shoulders.

    Sometimes our heroes live for a while yet—afterwards.

    Summary

    “Your vision is clear.” Valka levels her with an even look, and Eivor could feel the fight steadily beginning to drain out of her. “You will betray him—you will betray Sigurd.”

    And there is a moment, an awful, horrible moment, where she thinks, Randvi.

    Or;

    Eivor, hiding away after her meeting with Valka and the arrival of her brother Sigurd, broods.

    Summary

    Even now, that firestorm of hair strewn out across the bed brings Eivor to her knees in a way much closer to worship than repentance.

    Summary

    Dani could never keep the beast inside forever, but she fought with claws and jaws and fire until it was too much.

    OR:

    Small moments of hurt and slaughter and pain, but also of love and of kisses and of a life well spent
