Ben and his brother are forced to adjust to life in Titan Town after their home is attacked, and they are captured, by Vikings. Ben joins the town guard that winter, where he meets Commander Ryan, a former serf like himself. When the commander puts the town on the verge of war with his decision to strike the neighboring town of North City, Ben gets caught up in the plot. Meanwhile, Ben also has to deal with his brother's mischief in the town, and the will of Jill, a superior guard whom he becomes infatuated with. With the shadow of war now over Titan Town, the mettle of Ben and the guard will be tested.
