Over the years, best-selling author Annie Bell has taken criticism for the brutal honesty and slanderous details in her writing. Under pressure to deliver a new book to her adoring yet fickle fans, Annie abruptly announces that she plans to write about the one big mystery left in her life: her mother. Shortly after she receives a call from her older sister Ronogh, a small-town shut-in who lives upstate not far from their childhood home, Ronogh has news: their mother is missing.


Annie is forced to return to her hometown to search for her mother, work on her book, and reconnect with her sister. But the mystery deepens when Annie uncovers ceremonial artifacts and ancient drawings alluding to Norse Mythology in her mother’s possessions. Despite Ronogh’s warnings, Annie enlists the town deputy and a local college professor to decipher some of the clues, but with each discovery she grows more confused about her mother’s role in these forgotten traditions.


Spiraling into obsession, Annie struggles to maintain her sanity. When her mother 

materializes, Annie must decide whether to heed the warnings, or step into the darkness in search of the truth.
