Choosing is a bad idea, because Desi always makes the wrong one, and sometimes there are no do-overs. Certainly not this time, when all has been lost and Desi can’t even save herself, let alone her friends. For Desi, the hardest thing is letting someone help her, to accept their sacrifice on her behalf. But that’s exactly what she’ll have to do in order to save the worlds from Helena’s destruction.
The goddess of Helheimer, long imprisoned by Desi’s father, Loki, is free at last, and she’s bent on reclaiming what once was hers. The nine worlds will be drawn into war, over Hell, over Earth, with innocent humans meaningless collateral. While Michael and the Gardians of Asgard, along with the golden-armored Valkyrie lead the battle for freedom, it’s Desi who holds the destiny of all the worlds in her hands.
Can she set aside her doubts, once and for all, and claim the gifts that are hers to bear? Can she accept the sacrifice that is made for her and Become all that she was created to be?
Her final choice will define not only her future, but the fate of humankind, forever more.

Everyone thinks she is unhappy with her world, but just because none of them would choose Helheimer doesn’t mean it isn’t perfect for Hel. People seem to forget that she created the place—rocks and ice and all. She loves being the only warm thing because it draws her subjects nearer. She likes being the only source of beauty, the only bosom of comfort. And she’ll do anything in her power to see Helheimer restored to her once more.
And now that she is free, her power is not to be trifled with.

Loki is misunderstood. From time immemorial people have mistaken him to be evil, only focused on his own interests, but nothing could be further from the truth. The reason he fought with Odin in the first place was because Odin was willing to risk the eternal nature of the Gardian soul to chance, to choice—whereas Loki meant for every one of his brothers and sisters to gain Ascension. He was the only one who truly cared.
But Michael and Thor, Desolation and Odin all misunderstood him. They wouldn’t listen. They didn’t care to.
Only Loki cares. Only Loki loves truly.
And now he is forced to live in the gods-forsaken frozen realm of Helheimer where he has to be content with Odin’s cast-offs—those who didn’t win at Odin’s little game of do-or-die. Still, it’s something. And Loki hasn’t given up. Odin is an unfit guardian of Midgard, and Loki intends to unseat him and claim his rightful place at the head of the verdant Earth. Perhaps then he will be able to give his people what they most want, what they most deserve.
After all, he knows what’s best for them—better than Odin ever could.
