Nothing ever happens in Norway. But at least Ellie knows what to
expect when she visits her grandmother: a tranquil fishing village and long,
slow summer days. And maybe she'll finally get out from under the shadow of her
way-too-perfect big brother, Graham, while she's there.
What Ellie doesn't anticipate is Graham's infuriating best friend, Tuck,
tagging along for the trip. Nor did she imagine boys going missing amid rumors
of impossible kidnappings. Least of all does she expect that something powerful
and ancient will awaken in her and that strange whispers will urge Ellie to
claim her place among mythological warriors. Instead of peace and quiet,
suddenly there's a lot for a girl from L.A. to handle on a summer sojourn in
Norway! And when Graham vanishes, it's up to Ellie—and the ever-sarcastic, if
undeniably alluring, Tuck—to uncover the truth about all the disappearances and
thwart the nefarious plan behind them.
Deadly legends, hidden identities, and tentative romance swirl together in
one girl's unexpectedly epic coming-of-age.
