By Johanne Hildebrandt

Freya – the Story of Valhalla is the first part in the trilogy.
Freya lives on the island of Vanaheim in the Baltic Sea sometime during the Bronze Age. Freya is a young priestess of the moon goddess and the daughter of Vanaheim’s queen. One day the chief of Hallunda arrives to inform them that a warlike people –the Æsirs – who burn and pillage on the mainland has attacked his country. Freya and two other priestesses are sent to mediate a peace between the different groups. But their mission fails and the war becomes a fact. Freya is set on revenge, but then the extraordinary thing happens when Freya rescues the Æsir chief’s son Thor and they find themselves falling in love.
