Publisher's Summary

It all began with Ragnarok, with the Children of the Light and the Tarnished ones battling to the death in the ice and the dark. At the end of the long battle, one Valkyrie survived, wounded, and one valraven - the steeds of the valkyrie.

Because they lived, Valdyrgard was not wholly destroyed. Because the valraven was transformed in the last miracle offered to a Child of the Light, Valdyrgard was changed to a world where magic and technology worked hand in hand. 2500 years later, Muire is in the last city on the dying planet, where the Technomancer rules what's left of humanity. She's caught sight of someone she has not seen since the Last Battle: Mingan the Wolf is hunting in her city.

Is there more?

A very interesting novel about the begging and reincarnation of the world. This is my first Elizabeth Bear novel. Its very intriguing and I will likely explore Ms. Bear's other titles.

This story jumps around between various memories and present day events of the main character, but seems to transition very well. It's somewhat dark and yet there is hope in this book. This book feels like Norse mythology at the end of the world.

Kate Reading is one of my favorite narrators! She plays the reluctant heroine very well.

I only wish the ending wasn't so abrupt. I wonder if there is or will be an additional book.

Sometimes hard to follow

I found this book a worthy listen, but at times hard to follow. It seems to jump around a bit. I selected the book because Kate Reading and Michael Kramer are some of my favorite narrators and it was worth a credit for the book
