A powerful god, a magical tattoo and a rebellious teenager. What could possibly go wrong?
Christian, an unruly English teenager, stumbles onto a mysterious tattoo parlor. Possessed by the Rune God, Hagalaz, he becomes immortal, gifted with magical powers which allow him to harness the forces of nature.
Only problem? Hagalaz God of Disruption, is intent on making Christian’s life a living hell.
Oh, and did I mention the Settlers, a mysterious group with a dark and devastating secret?
It is up to Christian and his new Tribe of four, each gifted with their own celestial passenger, to uncover that secret.
But nothing is what it seems, and it will take much more than the powers of a few long-forgotten gods to stop the impending global disaster that threatens to destroy everyone and everything in its path.

‘I’m trying!’ I shouted back as more lightning flared out of my fingertips and crashed to the street below, tearing up pavement like paper. So far I hadn’t hit anyone, but it was just a matter of time as lightning was firing off left and right.
Hagalaz was really getting into his stride. I had to do something, but what?
