What happens when the serpent stops eating his tail? It devours the world from the inside out. Those were the words Lydian told Janneke so long ago. Now Janneke has defied the Laws of Winter to bring back not only the man who might be able to stop the end of the world but also the innocent life she was forced to sacrifice to do so. Stranded in Niflheim, the realm of the dead, they are forced to find the entryway to the Bifröst if they want to get back to the world of the living. Tensions rise between Soren and Lydian as Lydian's erratic visions bring him into a position of command: something the Erlking cannot allow. Lydian is certain that if they can hunt down Nidhug, the dragon that's shriek will bring about Fimbulwinter, a three year winter which kickstarts Ragnarök, they can stop the end of the world from beginning. But they'll have to navigate the terrifying realm of the dead to hunt it down. They aren't the only ones hunting though--Hel does not take defiance lightly and back in the Permafrost a traitor is on the loose. For the first time the hunters will become the hunted and their very enemy could be right in front of them. THE COVER IS MADE BY THE WONDERFUL @seventhstar!!
