The Valkyrie

Ex nihilo nihil fit: From nothing, nothing comes.

The god-born: Sigrun Caetia
The summoner: Trennus Matrugena
The archmage: Kanmi Eshmunazar
The godslayer: Adam ben Maor
And the man who brought them together in Rome's service: Antonius Valerius Livorus.

Together, they pursue a great mystery: Some believe that the world is about to end. Certainly, prophecy indicates so. Some of the gods are making provisions for that day, including reviving the custom of human sacrifice. How do they stop this, and how deep does the mystery go? And why is Sigrun prophesied to be the sole survivor of Ragnarok?
