    Summary

    To pay for the Viking army that helped the Emperor Basil defeat the Bulgars, the Princess Anna was sent to the North to marry the barbarian prince, Khan Vladimir. She wasn't happy about it.

    This is not a graphic story: there's no sex and no violence. But it is a story about a woman who is forced into a marriage she doesn't want at all.

    “Why do you come back here,” she asked, “when you have all of Alexandria before you, and any sea you please?”

    Summary

    “Why is he here?” Alexia asked me softly, when Anders was not in hearing.

    “I do not know,” I admitted.

    But I did. There is a thing between you and me that is as strong as love, Anders had said: and that drew him to us, far more strongly than the sea ever drew me.

    “It is only a scratch, Jestyn, you need not worry. I’ll have some ale and be well enough in the morning, but I should be glad for your help in binding it up.”
     
    Thormod would have called it a scratch if his arm were nearly hacked off.
