War herald of the Nine Worlds, Ted Callan, must build a cage from Surtur's bones, unearth the Bright Sword, and vanquish the fire giant once and for all.
But there's a snag in his master plan to slay the monster and save the world.
Ted has no idea how to do it.
So he hits the road and reunites the band. Hitchhiking back to Edmonton for his best friend's wedding, Ted fends off fanatical Surtur worshippers, makes a tentative peace with trickster Loki and prophetess Tilda, and learns he has three days left to live.
It's the end of the world as he knows it--time for Ted to face his doom.
