Clytie finds herself questioning Odin's orders when Psyche is charged to retrieve the soul of a shape-shifter named Storm. The Shifter falls, defending Clytie at the hands of a giant. As she runs to him, a spark ignites in her core, triggering an emotion forbidden to Valkyries. Realizing what the feelings hold, there is only one thing she can do, run.
Clytie turns her back on everything and everyone she has ever known. Doing so puts a target on her back, calling for Odin to put a price on their heads. Alerting all who serve him to hunt the duo down, even by the hands of her sister.
Odin is furious with his Valkyrie for disobeying him, proving the Well right. He accepts the War is coming and that Clytie will be the goddess who dethrones him.
