It’s 843 Anno Domini and Francia is being terrorized by Vikings and their heathen magic. Something is killing cows, removing the flesh, and etching the skeletons with runes. Has this evil been unleashed by a pair of Viking corpses and rune stones discovered in fresh graves? An ex-knight newly turned priest is forced to partner with a stubborn Frankish peasant to solve the riddle of the runes and battle Viking magic. Will they be able to save the village and its cows?
