Suddenly the two are transported to another time and place. In a parallel world, Odin, the father of the Viking gods, has sought out a Wise Woman to hear her knowledge of the past, present, and future.

He wants to know if there is anything he can do to avoid predicted Ragnarok – the destruction of the world. The Prophecy of the Seeress is based on a thousand-year-old Norse saga called Voluspa. Our modern world has a lot to learn from ancient Seeress. Do we have the time to heed her dire warnings?
