Synopsis: Freya has decided on a career change; unfortunately, as the Norse goddess of love, it’s complicated. Filled with bitter hatred over a ruined relationship, Freya has come to loath love and recently stole a powerful weapon, Vidar’s Boot, to take over as goddess of war and ignite the battle that will end all life: Ragnarok. Anya, one of her Shieldmaidens (virgin teen warriors), uncovers the evil plot, steals the boot from Freya, and hides it in a labyrinth under what, three thousand years later, becomes Fenway Park. Anya stays in Boston to watch over the boot. Due to her immortality, she has remained a teenager in appearance, attending high school a few dozen times. She befriends an awkward young man, Jack, who is devastated when she suddenly runs off during his sixteenth birthday party. She leaves him a coin and cryptic message, warning of a boot and impending doom. Fourteen years later, Jack, and his best friend, Donald, own a pawn shop in present day Boston. In the middle of a trying afternoon, Freya arrives, brandishing a sword and a flute, which she forces Jack to play. The hunt is on! Anya, whose immortality has been revoked, returns, introducing Jack and Donald to a host of mythological creatures. Once he discovers Freya’s intentions, Jack vows to lead the group in a race against Freya through a series of challenges in the dwarf inhabited caves and tunnels leading to the boot chamber.
