Description

"A surprise from the author of Chocolat," New York Times bestselling author Joanne M. Harris, "this pacy adult fantasy is narrated by Loki, the Norse god of fire and mischief" (Vogue). This novel is a brilliant first-person narrative of the rise and fall of the Norse gods--retold from the point of view of the world's ultimate trickster, Loki. A #1 bestseller in the UK, The Gospel of Loki tells the story of Loki's recruitment from the underworld of Chaos, his many exploits on behalf of his one-eyed master, Odin, through to his eventual betrayal of the gods and the fall of Asgard itself. Using her lifelong passion for the Norse myths, New York Times bestseller Joanne M. Harris has created a vibrant and powerful fantasy novel that the Sunday Sun recommends "to her long-standing audience with wit, style and obvious enjoyment;" The Sunday Times claims it "lively and fun;" and The Metro adds that "Harris has enormous fun with her antihero...this mythical bad boy should beguile fans of Neil Gaiman."

Review quote

"If everything you know about Loki begins and ends with the actor Tom Hiddleston, this book is for you. The way Harris writes him, you can't help but like him, even as he confesses to the most absurd and/or horrific deeds; well, you like him, but you wouldn't really want to be acquainted with him--being his enemy or his friend seems equally dicey. One has to admire the author for imposing her own take on the character."--Kirkus Reviews
