Norse-mythology-infused alternate world: the United States
Seventeen-year-old Soren Bearskin is trying to escape the
past. His father, a famed warrior, lost himself to the
battle-frenzy and killed thirteen innocent people. Soren
cannot deny that berserking is in his blood--the fevers,
insomnia, and occasional feelings of uncontrollable rage
haunt him. So he tries to remain calm and detached from
everyone at Sanctus Sigurd's Academy. But that's hard to do
when a popular, beautiful girl like Astrid Glyn tells Soren
she dreams of him. That's not all Astrid dreams of--the
daughter of a renowned prophetess, Astrid is coming into her
own inherited abilities.
When Baldur, son of Odin and one of the most popular gods in
the country, goes missing, Astrid sees where he is and
convinces Soren to join her on a road trip that will take
them to find not only a lost god, but also who they are
beyond the legacy of their parents and everything they've
been told they have to be.
