Loki is a member of a secret and ancient order of assassins, charged with getting close to the king of Asgard and monitoring his every step, waiting for the order to end his life. But when the time finally comes, he finds killing Thor far more difficult than he could have dreamed, and that the situation is not as simple as he'd thought.
Balance in all things, he tells himself, but the Brotherhood’s words offer him no comfort. It had been simple until now… taking a dozen lives to spare the thousands at their mercy had been easy for him over the years, just tasks assigned and completed, and balance restored.
But this is Thor’s life, and for what?
