In the legendary land of the Vikings, even the most ordinary boy can become a hero.
It isn’t easy being ordinary in Danmark, especially for twelve-year-old Gorm. Growing up in a land of fearsome Vikings, where warrior kings rule and his own father is a daring explorer; Gorm would like to become known for more than a stomach that won’t stop grumbling.
When his dad goes missing, Gorm sets out on a quest to find him. Along the way he meets Godefred, the great Danish Sea-King, who has problems of his own. As their fates become entwined, rumors and lies threaten to rip Gorm’s world apart. It will take more than courage for him to see his quest through, and Gorm will need friends. It’s too bad he’s no longer sure who he can trust.
