When the ability to see those destined to die turns from a curse into a blessing, Bryn Halbrook reluctantly embraces her new reality - that she is Valkyrie. A real, honest to goodness, in the flesh Valkyrie, no longer a figment of Old Norse lore, but a real being who seeks out the dead who are fated for the halls of Valhalla in service of the great God Odin.
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.
Ragnarok is upon the worlds, and the time to fight is now. They come from all of the Nine Realms. Dark Elves, Dragons, Frost Giants, Elves ... They all come to fight for Odin. And they answer to Valkyrie Brynhildr. While Bryn grieves, struggling to cope with Sigrun's death, she knows too there is no time for tears. Odin is still a shade of himself and though there is no sign of Loki in all of the Nine Realms - Thor knows he is hiding in Midgard. As the Warriors gather, Bryn must head the offensive and enter the Human Realm in search of the Trickster and his henchman.
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.
