Brunnhilde, a Valkyrie, searches for an understanding of mortal love and hopes someday to experience it.
While Brunnhilde goes about her quest, a secondary story involves a struggle to possess and control the magical horde of gold known as the Rhinegold, now transformed into quantum electronic devices of immense power. The god Wotan contends with two aliens in a three-way scrum.
This ancient myth is now told as a scifi tale with aliens replacing the fantasy creatures. Beautiful goddesses, magical gold, quantum electronics, aliens, a murderous god, great heroes: what more could a reader want?
