Francisco, and all the portable electronic devices they could want. But
everything changed when Dr. Walker lost his job in the wake of a mysterious
incident. Now in dire straits, the family must relocate to an old Victorian
house that used to be the home of occult novelist Denver Kristoff—a house that
feels simultaneously creepy and too good to be true.
By the time the
Walkers realize that one of their neighbors has sinister plans for them, they're
banished to a primeval forest way off the grid. Their parents? Gone. Their
friends? A world away. And they aren't alone. Bloodthirsty medieval warriors
patrol the woods around them, supernatural pirates roam the neighboring seas,
and a power-hungry queen rules the land. To survive, the siblings will have to
be braver than they ever thought possible—and fight against their darkest
impulses. The key may lie in their own connection to the secret Kristoff legacy.
But as they unravel that legacy, they'll discover it's not just their family
that's in danger . . . it's the entire world.

In Viking times, Norse myths predicted the end of the world, an event called Ragnarok, that only the gods can stop. When this apocalypse happens, the gods must battle the monsters--wolves the size of the sun, serpents that span the seabeds, all bent on destroying the world.
The gods died a long time ago.
Matt Thorsen knows every Norse myth, saga, and god as if it was family history--because it is family history. Most people in the modern-day town of Blackwell, South Dakota, in fact, are direct descendants of either Thor or Loki, including Matt's classmates Fen and Laurie Brekke.
However, knowing the legends and completely believing them are two different things. When the rune readers reveal that Ragnarok is coming and kids--led by Matt--will stand in for the gods in the final battle, he can hardly believe it. Matt, Laurie, and Fen's lives will never be the same as they race to put together an unstoppable team to prevent the end of the world.
