Jerry is a single parent raising his teenage daughter in the city of Toronto. As the year moves towards winter, he starts having strange dreams, training in traditional weapons with what seem to be Viking warriors. But the dreams aren’t really dreams, and the warriors are Æsir and their allies. There is a great evil coming, and he’s being forged into a weapon to face it. The boundary between life and death may not be as stable as he’s always thought and the Draugr are rising.
