Summary
Dioses antiguos, héroes mitológicos y figuras legendarias se dan cita en la obra narrativa más importante del extraordinario Neil Gaiman. Días antes de salir de prisión, la mujer de Sombra, Laura, muere en un misterioso accidente de coche. Aturdido por el dolor, emprende el regreso a casa. En el avión, se encontrará con el enigmático señor Miércoles, que dice ser un refugiado de una guerra antigua, un dios y también el rey de América. Juntos se embarcan en un viaje extraño a través de los Estados Unidos, mientras una tormenta de dimensiones épicas amenaza con desencadenarse.Poco a poco descubriremos que Miércoles es una encarnación de Odín y que está reclutando viejos dioses, cuyos poderes han disminuido por el tiempo y la falta de creyentes, para participar en una guerra contra los nuevos dioses: aquellos que conforman la tecnología moderna
