Jace’s old life is gone. Earth is a memory, replaced by a game world where survival itself is a challenge. But even if given a choice, Jace would never go back. He is a Northblood now, descendant of a proud barbarian lineage that once reigned over the chill realm he now calls home.
Despite the challenges beaten so far, nothing can prepare him for the looming contest. Long buried beneath sheets of ice in the far north, a barrow has been opened. The evil that struck down the Northblood during the height of their power rises again.
What chance do Jace and his friends have against the darkness that brought down a nation? Listen to find out.
Carrie Summers is a game programmer by day and a writer every other minute she can squeeze out of the universe. She dreams of living forever, takes a break occasionally to go rock climbing, and hopes someone will eventually invent a cure for sleep.
