But then she notices some spots on her skin. She writes them off as a rash, but things only get worse. She´s tired all the time, her hands and feet are numb and her face starts to look like day-old pizza. By the time her seventeenth birthday rolls around, she´s tried every cream and medication the doctors have thrown at her, but nothing works. When she falls doing a routine cheerleading stunt and slips into a coma, her mystery illness goes into overdrive and finally gets diagnosed: Hansen´s Disease, aka leprosy. Abby is sent to a facility to recover and deal with this new reality. Her many misdiagnoses mean that some permanent damage has been done, and all of her plans suddenly come tumbling down. If she can´t even wear high heels anymore, what is the point of living? Cheerleading is out the window, and she might not even make it to prom. PROM! But it´s during this recovery that Abby has to learn to live with something even more difficult than Hansen´s Disease.

In the economically recessed ´80s, the violent winds of change swirl in the drug world. The Canadian federal government is forced to privatize the job of defending the border. The only constant is Kurt Sorensen, a pillar of law abiding society. As a decorated U.S. Border Patrol Officer defending the southern border in El Paso, Texas, his keen skills, strong work ethic, classic Nordic looks and affable, good humor are a breath of fresh air in a region stifled with the burgeoning terror of warring drug gangs just across the border in Juarez, Mexico. But while his wife, Lupe, and twins Mark and Matthew are birthday shopping at the Mercado in Juarez one afternoon, Kurt, loving father and devoted husband loses everything he lives for as they are killed in an extremely vicious and apparently random ambush in broad daylight. Kurt chooses to leave the painful memories behind as he returns to his peaceful, stunningly beautiful hometown, North Walhalla, Manitoba. Instead of finding peace and tranquility as a Canadian Border Officer, Kurt is suddenly swept up in a vortex of evil and injustice that seems to have followed him northward. In a valiant attempt to protect Walhalla from succumbing to a sudden infiltration of death, drugs and destruction, Kurt engages in a long-distance battle with the infamous drug lord, `El Cabron¿, only to be shocked to his core at the revelation of the drug gang¿s silent business partner. With nowhere else to turn, Kurt draws on his ancestral Viking spirit and strength to recruit a secret militia to right the wrongs in society, delivering justice swiftly and in stealth. Powerful forces and matching wills of the militia, the drug lord, and the ominous third party are on inescapable collision courses, which intersect at the gates of Viking Heaven - Walhalla. 1.
