Description

The great Norse myths, which have inspired so much of modern fiction, are dazzlingly retold by Neil Gaiman. Tales of dwarfs and frost giants, of treasure and magic, and of Asgard, home to the gods: Odin the all-father, highest and oldest of the Aesir; his mighty son Thor, whose hammer Mjollnir makes the mountain giants tremble; Loki, wily and handsome, reliably unreliable in his lusts; and Freya, more beautiful than the sun or the moon, who spurns those who seek to control her.

From the dawn of the world to the twilight of the gods, this is a thrilling, vivid retelling of the Norse myths from the award-winning, bestselling Neil Gaiman.

Review quote

'The halls of Valhalla have been crying out for Gaiman to tell their stories.' -- The Observer 'Beautifully told and a lot of fun.' -- Mail on Sunday 'Gaiman's voice is engaging; often quirkily humorous ...the narrative, always crisp and direct, combines an adult's insight with a childlike sense of wonder at the magic of it all.' -- The Spectator
