MARA AND THE FIREBRINGER

Category: Edition 2015

Synopsis
Mara, fourteen year-old, sneered by her classmates for getting absorbed by weird daydreams, and dragged by her single mother to strange new age seminars, just wants to be a normal girl. But, when she starts to have visions of ancient Nordic gods, she discovers that she alone can gain entry into a world of gods, demi-gods, heroes and monsters, and that she alone can prevent the end of the world. Prophecy says the world will end when Loki, the cunning nemesis of the gods, is freed from his shackles and unleashes chaos. With the help of Reinhold Weissinger, university professor for Nordic mythology, Mara finds out that a fire giant named Loge has kidnapped Loki’s wife, and now Loki is more determined than ever to break free. Mara decides to look for help in another Nordic myth, Siegfried, the Nibelung hero.
