The orphan children of the late chieftain, Sten Brightsword, have made a promise that they will try to rescue one of their friends, Ulf, who has been kidnapped by the dreaded Jomsviking and sold as a slave. The brother and sister, Ahl who is sixteen and Ingir who is a year older, must first get the permission of the island council, the “Ting”, to embark on their mission. But the members of the “Ting” will only agree on the condition that girls must not go on the voyage. However, Ingir is not one to give in easily.
The “Ting” allows Ahl to borrow a new ship called the “Eagle” and appoints Bertil. an old sea captain, to sail it. They cross the Baltic Sea and find the land of the Rus where they think that Ulf is in captivity. However, the journey is fraught with danger. Not only do they have to travel through waters infested with pirates, but one of their own countrymen plots to kill Ahl.
Their luck runs out when they try to help a vessel under attack by robbers and the crew soon find themselves in as much trouble as the friend they are trying to rescue.
