An ancient evil has been unearthed, one that prophecy says no man can kill. Fortunately, some of the best warriors in the Nine Worlds are women. To face this threat, the goddess Freyja, chief of the Valkyries, charges her greatest warrior, Brunhilde, to recruit a force of Valkyries from all the Realms. Will they be strong enough to defeat the evil in the short time they have?
Spinning off from Thor: God of Thunder, Ride of the Valkyries explores the Nine Worlds of Norse mythology through the eyes of the Shieldmaidens of Asgard.
