THERE ARE SOME BOUNDARIES THAT SHOULD NEVER BE CROSSED
Midgard is a funeral pyre. Ragnarök, the doom of the gods, has brought the Empire of the Heavens to ruin.
For some, the harrowing promises a new beginning. Mother Jörð will rise again, and new gods will return to the golden tables of old. But Iðunn Lind, keeper of the great World Tree Yggdrasil, no longer believes in ancient prophecy or the hand of fate.
Across the veil, Churchwarden Michaels is stuck dealing with his own personal Ragnarök – and just how to save his neck now that three Viking crosses have appeared overnight at St. Mary’s.
When the boundaries between realities fracture, the two guardians discover that the gods not only play dice with the Vikingverse, they are rolling snake-eyes.
In this new chapter of the Vikingverse, the tapestry of time unfurls in deadly new ways:
• An Arabian ambassador faces a dead reckoning in Viking Ireland…
• A Jomsviking Jarl sails to far-flung lands beyond the record of the sagas…
• A lone Runesmith defends the Pax Nordica against the Mongol horde…
THE RESURRECTION IS AT HAND, AND HEAVEN ON EARTH AWAITS THE FAITHFUL – BUT WILL THE FUTURE BE KRISTIN OR ÆSIR?
