Three hundred years have passed since half of Earth froze, and the human race has settled other planets under the supervision and control of a military contractor that harnessed the powers of the higher mind. But when the daughter of a warrior clan who made her fortune in the contractor’s service discovers a dark secret beneath their dominion, she must learn to fight like the old gods.
This story is woven into the Norse myth of Odin, the one-eyed, all-seeing god of war, magic and wisdom. He is a complex figure, associated with poetry and inspiration, madness and battle fury. He is also a shapeshifter and considered fickle, not to be trusted.
No one knows whose side he’s on.

A white stone cabin. Inside is a bunk bed against a wall with a large statue of the god Odin watching the cabin. He appears as a gray-beared, muscular man with a white/blue/gray mantle with an eagle helmet. On his shoulders perch two great black ravens. Hugin is carved into a ribbon curling around ones foot. On the other, the marble ribbon reads: Munin. Odin holds a spear, the name Gungnir etched into its shaft. On his other hand, he wears a ring, Draupnir. A wolf and a hunting hound sit at each foot. Again, a ribbon runs over each's forepaws. Geri and Feri, they read.
