After Freya escapes from the Finemdi Corporation, her quest to defeat her enemy takes her to Hollywood. There she disguises herself once again as Sara Vanadi, now an up-and-coming star on a scandalous television series. Freya knows that today’s modern gods live on the screen, and she desperately needs strength from her believers. With sinister forces at her heels, an ancient enemy returned and a threat lurking in the shadows, Freya must walk a dangerous line between mortal and goddess. Because if she loses her humanity, who will save the world?

There's far more to Sara Vanadi than meets the eye. In her prime, she was Freya, the Norse goddess of love, beauty, war and death --- though that past hardly seems to matter now. For an ancient goddess in the 21st century, true believers --- and the strength they bring --- are painfully hard to find. But when a new, rising power threatens to remake the world by bending the divine to its will, Sara realizes her days of hiding have ended, and a chance to claw her way out of the history books has arrived. She'll just need new clothes and a manicure before she gets started.
