Amy Lewis is on her way to her grandma’s, but she’s being pursued by a very bad wolf. Galaxies away, Loki is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover, and has no idea what he’s done wrong, this time anyway. However, he does know Odin is up to something wicked. In this tale that is equal parts “Once Upon a Time” and “American Gods,” a nice Midwestern girl and a jaded Loki must join forces to outwit gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors. If Amy can convince him not to be distracted by human gadgets or three day bender, they just might pull it off. This first volume of "I Bring the Fire" is for anyone who suspects mischief makers have their own redeeming qualities, or just wants a good romp through modern Earth, ancient Asgard.

However, you must read into the book where there are dark passages that clues the reader into more of the rich history adding to the ominous ambience of the series. The book also introduces the people and kingdoms of this distant world as well as setting the stage in a powerfully rich and dynamic saga. The Sword of Souls, named after the very powerful translation of "Talquardez-Solstas" from the language of its mysterious maker that men will literally be driven to madness by their own lusts for power.

The young boy travels through the Southern Steppes of his very homeland beforeentering the kingdom of Gwarvarik through the aid of a Najarian Druid in the form of a great black wolf who befriends the young boy. Together, the two enter the Forbidden Temples of Adajahara where the druidic wolf departs the young boy, leaving him in the charge of a small flock of sheep. In Adajahara, Lithius recovers the very powerful weapon, the Sword of Souls, and many secrets of both the sword and the region around him. Alone, he begins to uncover the dark secrets and the historical horrid violence of the past. Young Lithius begins to master the sword and begins to wield it strength only to realize that there are others who will literally kill to obtain it.
