Solveig and her royal siblings, Harald and Asa, are stranded. They must live out the winter in an old hall hidden away on a frozen fjord. While their father is off to war, he has ordered his family to stay at the hall under a royal guard. He promised his children and men that he would send supplies and eventually a boat to bring them back home. But as the winter months draw out and their supplies run low, mysterious deaths start to occur. Solveig can tell that these deaths are no accidents. There are traitors among their small party. When enemy ships come into the fjord, the true traitors come to light. Solveig and her siblings must escape to keep their royal lineage safe.
