The Forty Swords arrive at night and, under the cover of darkness, murder an entire village. Only two people survive the slaughter: the infant Elsbeth and her grief-stricken father, Dag, who slips into a ten year coma. He awakens to find that not only has his daughter grown up alone, she's thrived despite him.
Setting off on a revenge quest that will span the breadth of Viking Age Europe, they find that the key to repairing their damaged relationship lies in the swords they carry. Sword Daughter is all about
the power of redemption and the resiliency of family, and a visually stunning tribute to samurai cinema.
The first issue of Sword Daughter is out today. It will be collected in a trade paperback edition next November: pre-order it now.
