Much against her wishes, her father, King Thorsson decides to make a last epic voyage to Bear Island. Betrayed by his heir and Freya’s soon-to-be-husband, Sven, Thorsson is captured by The Beast, a tormented man, trapped in the body of a beast, cursed by his God, and rejected by his family and people. Freya goes to the beast to save her father. He is living in furious isolation and fear, struggling to control the raging animal within, clinging fiercely to the former honour he had as a man, until redemption - in the form of Freya - arrives. Drawn to her beauty and courage, he falls in love, until he has to make the choice between sacrificing himself or lose the love that has given him reason to live. Freya herself pushes aside dreams of a lost love and chooses to sacrifice herself for the good of the people and her father, even if this means going against her heart».
