Fantasy

Blurb

The goddess Freya is determined to thwart the death of her son Baldur, the god of beauty and strength, whose death would set off the chain of events leading to Ragnarok and the demise of all nine realms, including Asgard. In Midgard, the realm of the Folk, newly-crowned Queen Lifa strives to preserve Asvajar's way of life by meeting social upheaval and a slave rebellion with force. The realms of gods and Folk collide as both seek to prevent the destruction of everything they know.
