Vikings: Brietta's Song
This is completely original and won't have any relation to 'Vikings' on History Channel. Brietta's Song is about a young, willfully stubborn Viking girl who is forced into marriage with a man she is a complete stranger with. Her life will be at stake when she is involved with a scandalous affair that some assume was constructed by the Maker of Mischief himself. How far will she be willing to go to gain her freedom?
Brietta Heimrsen [protagonist; she is a teenager living during the Viking times in Scandinavia and is forced into a marriage with a total stranger even though she is in love with her childhood friend
Brynja Folkvathr [Brietta's mother]
Heim Folkvathr [Brietta's father]
Calder Mikkelson [Brietta's fiance/husband and an ally to her father, Heim]
Geirmund Haraldson [lover to Brietta and a childhood friend, has an older brother but he is a minor character]
Edyis Ulfr [sister to Brynja Folkvathr]
Eira Ulfr [daughter of Eydis, cousin of Brietta]
Also, the Norse gods won't really have major involvement in this story, only briefly mentioned here and there.
I love historical fiction! Mostly historical fiction about European history from the Ancient times to 1920s. :) My favourite subjects right now are Ancient Greece/Rome, Viking Golden Age (if you want to call it that) Renaissance and Baroque Era.
