Thoron (Daughters of Freya Book 2)
Born as a princess, destined to serve the Norse gods
Thoron grows up in an Irish village with her grandmother, a pagan – unaware that she is the daughter of the Norwegian King, Haakon Haakonsson.
At fourteen Thoron leaves the Emerald Isle, and sails to her royal family just as the bloody battle for the kingship enters its last dramatic phase.
The burden of her heathen inheritance weighs heavily upon her shoulders, and she finds herself forced to battle against everything her father stood for.
In the 13th century, Norway was enjoying the peak of its power and influence.
But everything was controlled by men!
Thoron is the second book in the standalone Series «Daughters of Freya» which will be a total of seven books – all Epic Tales inspired by true events in Nordic history.
1) Freydis (launched)
2) Thoron (launched)
3) Driva (will be launched early 2021)
