The Fortress and The Fire
A thousand years after Ragnarok, the battle in which the Aesir and the Vanir were all but destroyed, Vidar, a son of Odin, must return to the Nine Worlds to face a threat greater than any he has ever known-a masked destroyer bent on finishing the devastation that Ragnarok started. Armed with a magical sword forged in violence, hatred, and blood, Vidar must lead his unlikely allies through Jotunheim, frigid realm of the frost giants-on a desperate mission to find and stop the madman in the mask before Vidar's universe is consumed in cold fire.

About Michael Jan Friedman
Michael Jan Friedman is the author of more than 70 books of fiction and non-fiction, about half of them set somewhere in the wilds of the Star Trek universe. In 1992 Friedman wrote Reunion, the first Star Trek: The Next Generation hardcover, which introduced the crew of the Stargazer, Captain Jean-Luc Picard's first command. Over the years, the popularity of Reunion has spawned a number of Stargazer stories in both prose and comic book formats, including a six-novel original series. Friedman has also written for the Aliens, Predator, Wolf Man, Lois and Clark, DC Super Hero, Marvel Super Hero, and Wishbone licensed book universes. Eleven of his book titles, including the autobiography Hollywood Hulk Hogan and Ghost Hunting (written with SciFi's Ghost Hunters), have appeared on the prestigious New York Times primary bestseller list, and his novel adaptation of the Batman & Robin movie was for a time the #1 bestselling book in Poland (really). Friedman has worked at one time or another in network and cable television, radio, business magazines, and the comic book industry, in the process producing scripts for nearly 180 comic stories. Among his comic book credits is the Darkstars series from DC Comics, which he created with artist Larry Stroman, and the Outlaws limited series, which he created with artist Luke McDonnell. He also co-wrote the story for the acclaimed second-season Star Trek: Voyager episode "Resistance," which guest-starred Joel Grey.
