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.

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA PRESENT DAY, LATE DECEMBER
Anna Stangeland woke abruptly, clutching the pendant so hard that the worn edges nearly cut into her fingers. The sheets were halfway off the bed as if she’d been thrashing, though she knew a person didn’t move when she dreamed.
Orn hopped down from the headboard and settled on the bed, cocking his head so that one bright eye was fixed on hers. She shivered, expelled a shuddering breath, and released her hold on the flat piece of stone, letting it fall back to her chest.
Praise for Mist
“Mist, despite believing herself to be the least of the Valkyrie, is stubborn and determined to fight for her adopted world. It’s a fast-paced, gripping thriller, with a few interesting twists and turns and some excellent divine conspiracy.”—Booklist
“A brilliant concept—Norse fantasy in a modern setting. Highly recommended!”—C.J. Cherryh, award-winning author of Intruder
“The talented Krinard draws from the world of Norse mythology as she introduces a dark new urban fantasy series featuring a disillusioned Valkyrie. [P]lenty of deceit, drama and action!”—RT Book Reviews
“A kick-ass Valkyrie with baggage teams up with a brooding elf to battle Loki and a band of Jotunar (frost giants)… Krinard’s background as a romance novelist lends her an ability to write well-defined, multi-dimensional characters who help this story stand out in a crowded field.”—Publishers Weekly
