Release date: March 4, 2015
Subgenre: Fantasy, Norse mythology

About Ragnarok:

Loki vowed Asgard would burn.

Bohdi Patel, latest incarnation of Chaos, wants nothing to do with Loki’s psychotic oath.
Stranded on the icy world of Jotunheim with Amy Lewis, his friend Steve Rogers, and an unlikely band of civilians, magical beings, and elite military, Bohdi just wants to keep himself and his friends alive … but when you’re Chaos incarnate, even the simplest goals are complicated.

If Jotunheim doesn’t kill them, Odin will, and if Odin doesn’t, the secrets they harbor might.

In the final installment of I Bring the Fire, Bohdi, Amy, Steve, and their companions learn that Chaos cannot be contained, some secrets cannot be kept, and some vows cannot be broken. 

This is the sixth and final book of the I Bring the Fire series. Book 1, Wolves, is free.



Amy Lewis is a woman at war … with her brain. She is riding on a make-shift sled of branches and duct tape. The sled is hitched to the back of a stealth-bomber equivalent of a snowmobile, and is racing over the ice of Lake Balstead in Jotunheim, land of the Frost Giants. The lake is filled with man-eating, claw-flippered, horned orcas that will pop out and eat anything or anyone who stops too long. Amy is stranded here with unlikely company—her grandmother Beatrice, Bohdi Patel, Steve Rogers, his daughter Claire, an elite military team, the Frost Giantess Gerðr, and Loki’s family—his ex-wife Sigyn, and their sons, Valli and Nari. Amy’s dog Fenrir and her spidermouse, Mr. Squeakers, are also with her. Odin blew up the World Gate to Chicago during what should have been a short exploratory mission. Without a way home, they’re making a break for the Iron Wood, hoping the Frost Giants there will be friendly. If the whales don’t get them, Odin will, and if Odin doesn’t get them, Jotunheim’s winter will—unless they get to the Iron Wood in time. Terror should be enough to keep her awake. Still, Amy’s fighting the urge to fall back on the gear behind her and go to sleep. If she falls asleep she will roll off the sled. If she rolls off the sled, she will die.
But if she dies … she will be asleep.
Amy shakes her head and sits up with a start. Last time her brain hopped on that train of thought she wound up running her car off the road.
Her obviously traitorous brain whispers, “But that was all because of Loki. There’s no Loki here. It’s safe to rest your eyes for a moment.” Her eyelids start to droop ...

About C. Gockel: 

C. Gockel got her start writing fanfiction, and she is not ashamed! Much. She received emails, messages and reviews from her fans telling her she should 'do this professionally'. She didn't; because she is a coward and life as a digital designer, copywriter and coder is more dependable. But in the end, her husband's nagging wore her down: "You could be the next '50 Shades of Gray' and I could retire!" Unfortunately, the author isn't much for writing smut. She is sad about this; she'd love for her husband to be able to retire and just work for her so she could nag him.




  1. This is a fantastic series. The characters are rich, the storylines are fantastic yet credible. I don't want the series to end!

  2. I agree with Misty,this series is wonderful. Mrs. Gockel has taken myths to a whole new level!
