A precarious truce exists between Aethelflaed's Mercia and Northumbria, now ruled by Uhtred of Bebbanburg's son-in-law, Sigtryggr. Under the cover of this fragile calm, Uhtred must begin his campaign that will end with the assault on Bebbanburg, the great fortress that is rightly his and was stolen from him in childhood.
