Peace has prevailed in Wessex for several years after the Battle of Ethandun. King Alfred has turned his attention to parts of England such as Northumbria and the city of Eoferwic York that are occupied by two Viking warlords, Erik and Sigefrid.
A cleric brings Alfred news of a holy vision, dreamt by the Abbot Eadred of Cumberland, that tells that Saint Cuthbert wants the Danish slave and son of the warrior Harthacnut, Guthred, who is in the hands of slave-traders, to be appointed as King of Cumberland.
Uhtred, along with Hild and Halig, rides to Eoferwic in search of Thyra. Erik and Sigefrid leave the city in the hands of the Dane Haesten, before leaving with an army to maraud in Scotland.
Soon afterwards, the people of Eoferwic rebel and reclaim the city. Uhtred encounters Father Beocca in Eoferwic.
Beocca asks him to help him buy the slave and tells him where to find Kjartan. Guthred sees no danger in integrating the Danes into his army and agrees.
Sihtric, one of Kjartan's illegitimate sons swears allegiance to Uhtred. Abbot Eadred systematically builds mistrust of Uhtred, telling Guthred that Uhtred is a pretender to his crown.
King Guthred tries to raise an army to reclaim Northumbria from the Danes, beginning with Eoferwic. Guthred wants to negotiate a truce with Erik and Sigefrid.
He offers them the fortress of Dunholm in exchange for Eoferwic, but for this they must join forces to defeat Kjartan. Lord Aelfric, Uhtred's uncle, agrees to send soldiers if Uhtred is disposed of.

Ragnar claims Dunholm. Three years later, Uhtred has his own estate, Coccham Cookham , in Wessex. Gisela and he have a son Young Uhtred and a daughter Stiorra.
Mercia is being raided by Danes. Sigefrid and Erik have returned and plan to occupy the fortress of Beamfleot on the Temes river and the city of Lunden in Mercia, thereby blocking supply chains to Wessex.
Aethelwold has been to Daneland and tells Uhtred of a speaking corpse, Bjorn, who has visions of the future. Alfred visits Coccham to reprimand Uhtred for hanging a thief without a trial.

While the armies of Wessex and Mercia attack Lunden, and find it empty, the Danes raid the camp where Aethelflaed resides.

Erik is becoming smitten by Aethelflaed. Haesten has other plans for her. Erik rescues Aethelflaed from assault and they grow closer.
Lady Aelswith overcomes her animosity towards Uhtred and asks Alfred to send him to rescue her. Alfred sends Aethelred and Uhtred to Beamfleot to negotiate the ransom.
Odda tells Alfred that if the ransom is too much it will cripple Wessex, and the money will be used to raise an army against Alfred.
But if Aethelflaed is left with the Danes she will be a trophy used to humiliate Alfred. Odda suggests that she takes her own life to avert disaster.
Although the ransom for Aethelflaed amounts to the entire wealth of Wessex, Alfred decides to pay it, even though it will lead to the slaughter of hundreds of his men by the army that the Danes will raise with the payment.
Odda reiterates that the costs of saving Aethelflaed will destroy Wessex. Alfred dismisses Odda as his advisor.
Aethelflaed writes to Uhtred to ask him to help her escape with Erik. Sigefrid suspects Erik has become too attached to Aethelflaed and locks her in a cage in the main hall of the fortress where all Danes can ensure that she is imprisoned.
Odda raises the fyrd of his estate in Devonshire to attack Beamfleot. Three nights before the ransom is to be paid, Uhtred leads a night raid to rescue Aethelflaed.
