Chapter Summary Edit
Calder, the notorious coward, charmer, schemer and youngest son of the former King Bethod of Northmen, is a prisoner of King Black Dow. He lives in some luxury with his beloved pregnant wife Seff, the daughter of the war-chief Caul Reachey. However, he a prison all the same, for plotting as usual to depose Dow and claim his father’s chain for himself.1
Suddenly, there’s a thumping at the door from Caul Shivers,2 a horribly scarred one-eyed Northman and Dow’s enforcer. Shivers announces that Black Dow wants him. As Shivers leads him away, Calder starts working on him saying that Dow doesn’t give him the respect he deserves. However, Shivers with a face as cold as death just says in his broken whisper, “Dow wants you.”

- Calder is introduced here with a sweet scene with his beloved wife, to foreshadow a far more sympathetic portrayal of him than the original trilogy. Personally, I still can't forgive him for killing Forley.
- After Shivers' face-heel-turn in Best Served Cold, he's now firmly on the villainous side during this book.
