Bryn Halbrook had always seen the glow. But it is only when her best friend dies that she discovers the meaning of those beautiful golden auras - Death. Alone, lost in the foster system, she struggles to understand who she is and why she was cursed with the ability to see the soon-to-be-dead. The new foster kid, Aidan, isn't helping any.
Valkyrie-in-training Bryn Halbrook just can't catch a break. With her boyfriend stuck in Hel and the taunting laughter of Loki still ringing in her ears, she struggles to concentrate on her training and duties in Odin's realm. The last thing she expects or wants is more adventure - but then treachery, a shocking abduction, and a chilling discovery send her forth on another perilous, globe-hopping mission. In the exciting sequel to Dead Radiance, Bryn encounters dwarfs and dragons, new friends and old foes - but the worst enemy of all may be the person she trusts most.
Struggling to accept the loss of her wings, Bryn's not sure if she can be a real Valkyrie anymore. But when a mysterious prophecy claims she will be the reason the All-Father dies, she is determined to ensure the prediction will not come to pass. A visit to the three fates who live beneath the great Tree of Life sends Bryn racing against time to find the missing Heimdall and his horn.
