An exciting new novel set 115 years in a future where the Norse Gods are alive and well!

Some doors should never be opened.


“My name is Haldor Olsen. I was happy once. I had everything a man could want: great job, beautiful wife, and an amazing son. In a flash it was ripped away. What remains is a raging ember of what I once was.

The Hrymar came without warning, hungry for slaves. At first attacking ships, and then our first colony on Epsilon Eridani. Now they’re coming for Earth. I have to stop them… somehow.”

Humanity’s doom was seeded in 2013, when two researchers deciphered a puzzle on an ancient Scandinavian runestone, leading to contact with an enigmatic alien race, and hinting at the very origins of intelligent life in the Galaxy. A century later though, millions would wish they’d never unlocked that secret.

The benevolent aliens, the Alfar, uplifted mankind technologically and taught them that 180,000 years ago, the Norse Gods seeded their world, as well as Earth. The Gods instructed the Alfar to shepherd humanity to the stars once they’d advanced enough to unlock the secret on the runestones; this great gift became a curse.

As man plied the stars and began colonization, they encountered other advanced races, including the Hrymar, depraved slave traders.

In 2128, Haldor Olsen, an explorer, and sometime spy, becomes a reluctant hero when his home is attacked and he’s faced with losing everything he loves. He travels hundreds of light-years in a frantic race around the Galaxy to save mankind from enslavement by an inhuman enemy.


Brothers will fight and kill each other,

sisters’ children will defile kinship.

It is harsh in the world,

whoredom rife an axe age,

a sword age shields are riven,

a wind age, a wolf age before the world goes headlong.

No man will have mercy on another.
