The battles between the Norseland and The Isles is over, but new battles await in the farthest reaches of the northern fjords: an icy wasteland inhabited by trolls, dwarves and goblins.
With enemies behind and enemies ahead, Calum and Lena must answer the call of destiny. Their apprenticeship as duelva and vala will ready them to serve Odin's legacy, but only an assured command of the runes can bring triumph in the looming final battle against the ancient forces of chaos.
