Is this Ragnarok, or just California?The NorseCODE genome project was designed to identify descendants of Odin. What it found was Kathy Castillo, a murdered MBA student brought back from the dead to serve as a valkyrie in the Norse god’s army. Given a sword and a new name, Mist’s job is to recruit soldiers for the war between the gods at the end of the world—and to kill those who refuse to fight.But as the twilight of the gods descends, Mist makes other plans. Journeying across a chaotic American landscape already degenerating into violence and madness, Mist hopes to find her way to Helheim, the land of the dead, to rescue her murdered sister from death’s clutches. To do so, she’ll need the help of Hermod, a Norse god bumming around Los Angeles with troubles of his own. Together they find themselves drafted into a higher cause, trying to do what fate long ago deemed could not be done: save the world of man. For even if myths aren’t made to be broken, it can’t hurt to go down fighting…can it?

And I like ongoing well enough where each book tells one tale and is done, but nobody seems to write tho...

This isn't really what I expected out of this book. Not sure what I really did expect, but a broken prophecy wasn't really it. They broke it at some points (some good, some not) but it might have been kinder to have let the worlds die (several died anyway, I think Midgard might have been the last on...

She bands with a few of the norse pantheon to see what's going on and to try to make things better or even to find out what is going on. She wants to find her sister as well. The ...

A fun read. I enjoyed how the author used Nordic mythology in a present day end of the world scenario. The characters were not deepley written, but they still managed to suck you into their world and make you keep reading just to find out how they would get themselves out of the messes they end up i...
