Please join us for the launch of Thunder Road by Chadwick Ginther on Thursday, September 6 at 8:00 pm at McNally Robinson Grant Park in the Atrium.
Thunder Road: In a flash, Ted Callan’s world exploded and amid the flames he saw the incomprehensible, the burning figure of the fire giant Surtur. Before long, Ted learns that the creatures of Norse folklore walk among us and his fate is forever tied to them.
Ted wants nothing more than to have his old life back. No more magic. No more smart-ass gods. To get it, Ted is willing to fight his way through any creature of legend. The problem is, if he succeeds, it might just be the end of the world.
