Instead of death, Alfred chooses public humiliation for Uhtred and for Aethelwold, who absconded from the monastery. Uhtred returns to his estate with Mildrith and Leofric. His marriage with Mildrith is struggling because he did not agree that his son should be baptized. Uhtred and Leofric dress as Vikings with the intention of raiding Cornwalum with some of Alfred’s men to acquire some wealth. Aethelwold stalks them and persuades Uhtred to let him join the group. The raid is unsuccessful because the villages are too poor. They encounter Brother Asser who introduces him to King Peredur of the Britons. He convinces them to attack a rival, King Callyn, for an ample reward. Callyn turns out to be a Danish warlord, Skorpa. They join forces to fight Peredur for his wealth, but Uhtred is betrayed by Skorpa who steals the treasure. Uhtred meets the sorceress and shadow queen, Iseult, and is smitten. Iseult shows them where another stash of silver is stored. Uhtred repays his estate’s debt to the church with some of the spoils. He tells Mildrith that their marriage is over. Alfred learns of Uhtred and Leofric’s raid. They are condemned to a fight to the death.
Uhtred and Leofric lead a raiding party to Cornwall, on a mission for wealth and independence. The party becomes mercenaries for a Cornish King and Uhtred attracts the attention of a beautiful sorceress queen named Iseult. Iseult’s charms and the promise of silver make Uhtred feel like he finally has the chance of a new start. However, when he returns to Wessex he is faced with the wrath of King Alfred and a judgment that leaves both his life and the life of his best friend Leofric hanging in the balance.
