Rebane Nordstrom, an expert sniper in the ranks of ODON, (an elite reconnaissance unit in frozen, post-apocalyptic Europe twenty-five years after the nuclear holocaust), doesn’t know how to give up ... ever.
Escaping prison and avoiding being blackmailed into becoming a double agent, Rebane realizes some enemies are too big and strong to be overcome alone. No woman is an island ... not even one as capable as Rebane Nordstrom. Help is around the corner, but sometimes, looks are deceiving.
A desperate alliance between two women from the opposite sides of the war between the Russian Federation and the European Union is forged, and the totem animals and Gods of the North yield immense power for those who stop and pray. The extreme weather can wipe out entire armies and personified nature, magic, and omens shield Rebane from an overpowering and cruel enemy.
Rebecka Jäger was born in Northern Finland. She studied history at the University of Helsinki and screenwriting at Aalto University’s Department of Film, Television, and Scenography.
She wrote professional texts throughout her career but decided to learn the delicate art of writing fiction later on. She mastered the craft in different writer’s workshops—always keen to become a better writer.
Her work ranges from dystopian to historical and stays mostly within the thriller genre. She is a passionate hunter and musher. Arctic nature is a recurring theme in her writing.
“The future roots in the past and humanity may never learn. Aggression runs deep inside our genome. That’s what keeps us at the top of the food chain: as the ruling species which can kill and torture at will. Great gifts come with great responsibility—something we haven’t learned yet.” —Rebecka Jäger
