In a poor town, a young girl flees from home with a childhood love upon discovering that her parents have sold her into slavery. The two wind through dark mountain passes until they reach a meadow of poisonous flora. Her mind filled with memories of a difficult past, the girl chooses to end her life peacefully among the weeping lillies. The boy holds the love of his life in his arms as she passes away.
Years later, Asgard, the realm of the gods, remains locked in an eternal struggle between the benevolent Aesir and the demonic Vanir. With the end of the world approaching, Odin, lord of Asgard, summons Lenneth Valkyrie to his side. Possessing the ability to hear the thoughts and feelings of men and women in their dying moments, he charges Valkyrie to search Midgard, the world of mortals, to recruit and train the souls of worthy warriors to join the ranks of the Aesir in the Sacred War.
But who is Valkyrie, and why does she resemble a young silver-haired girl who died tragically years ago? With the outcome of the war resting upon her shoulders and time running short, Valkyrie takes flight to the battered lands of Midgard.
