In the heat of battle and bloodshed, the realm of Jotunheim falls to Asgard. Amid the slaughter, Borr, the Aesir king, spares his enemy’s infant son. The youth is spirited back to Asgard and spends the first twelve years of his life locked in a dungeon—until Prince Odin vows to uphold his father’s dying wish. United in blood as brothers, Odin frees the boy and swears no harm shall come to him. His name? Loki... Peace has reigned for twenty-four years when Loki and Thor, Odin’s son and heir, embark upon a secret mission deep into the heart of Asgard. But when a Jotunn warrior hiding among the locals makes an attempt on Thor's life, that stability is set on a knife’s edge. Now the king of Asgard, Odin is convinced that the rival kingdom of Jotunheim is once again preparing for war. As Odin readies his armies for the inevitable battle, Loki covertly sets out to Jotunheim to discover the truth and stop a needless war.
