Oi, you snivelling pig-dogs! Are you ready for a Viking adventure?
Velda is a small girl with a big axe, and she knows how to use it. Alongside her misfit crew, she's living her best Viking life, sailing the seas in her very own longship and teaching anyone who thinks she's 'just a little girl' a lesson.
But when a raid on the vault of the treasure-obsessed Count Stollenberg goes wrong, Velda is forced into a deal to bring him the legendary Frost Hammer. The only teensy tiny issue is that it belongs to the Frost Giants, who are anything but teensy tiny. Velda and her crew must trek across snow and ice to break into the giants' mountain home, but it seems the Frost Giants are happier to see them than they expected. A bit too happy, in fact...
Join Velda on her mission as she schemes her way out of scrapes and battles enormous enemies, all while proving she's the awesomest Viking around.
