'And so he sets a fire, to sear his soul and purge away all that stands in his desperate path, to forge his focus and save the ones for whom he walks his bitter road. Now his illness, cured in flame, sails away on tendrils of smoke until the heavens weep for all he loved. 'We march to Ragnarok,' he says to no one as he hefts his mighty sword. 'Behind us, all we were, before us, only bloody battle. You carry lightning in your eyes, my friend, bolts as numerous as grains of sand. Your burden is nigh, the last to die, for there is fury in my hand.'' —:Scrawled onto a wall of the last temple of Loki before the world burned. An ancient evil, imprisoned by the gods until the end of time, has broken free in our modern world. The Norse gods imprisoned the trickster Loki for a heinous crime long ago, and it is foretold that he will bring about the end of the world when he escapes. As Loki begins to tear the world of humans apart with tricks and lies, causing panic and desperation, the gods must fight against him. But the gods have long forgotten their divinity and live as ordinary humans among us. A computer programmer, a soldier, a porn star, and a lounge singer were all once part of Loki's royal family, gods and goddesses worshiped by the Norse people, and they must learn the truth about themselves and find a way to fight Loki before it's too late. Ragnarok, the final battle and death of the gods, is at hand. With every advantage on Loki's side, the fate of the world rests on the shoulders of a handful of unlikely heroes. The Wolves of Ragnarok is a fast-paced, thrilling journey that will transport you from modern society into a world of magic and mythology. Loki's devious designs will keep you guessing until the very end.
