New York Times bestselling author Susan Krinard continues the thrilling urban fantasy series that began with Mist in Black Ice.
Centuries ago, all was lost in the Last Battle when the Norse gods and goddesses went to war. The elves, the giants, and the gods and goddesses themselves were all destroyed, leaving the Valkyrie known as Mist one of the only survivors.
Or so she thought.
The trickster god Loki has reappeared in San Francisco, and he has big plans for modern-day Earth. With few allies and fewer resources—but the eyes of the gods and goddesses of an old world upon her—it's up to Mist to stop him before history repeats itself.

Krinard's able sequel to Mist expands upon the story of the god Loki's plan to end the world by capturing the lethal weapons the Valkyries hold in safekeeping. In his way are the goddess Freya, her daughter Mist, and an ever-growing army. Dainn, an elf who is struggling to contain his feral side, knows that Mist doesn't just need to be protected from Loki whose lust for Dainn is menacing but also from Freya, who is playing a game that may result in Mist's demise. The introduction of Loki's son Danny adds an intriguing dimension. His abilities are vast but unknown, as are his loyalties. The only snag is Dainn's inexplicable reluctance to tell Mist about her mother's plans, but readers who are more interested in supernatural action won't mind the plot holes.
