The Norse myths are woven into the fabric of our storytelling - from the novels of Tolkien to the worlds of comics and superheroes. They are also an inspiration for Neil Gaiman's own award-winning, bestselling fiction.
Now Gaiman reaches back through time to the original source stories in an epic and electrifying retelling of the great Norse myths - thrilling tales of dwarfs and frost giants,of treasures and magic, and of Asgard, home to the gods: Odin the all-father,highest and oldest of the god; his mighty son Thor,whose hammer,Mjollinor,was forged by dwarfs and makes the mountain giants tremble; Tyr the one-handed,Frigg queen of the gods.Loki,wily and handsome, reliably unreliable in his lusts; Frey,brother of Freya,she more beautiful than the sun or the moon,who gives short shrift to the gods,giants and ogres who seek to control her.
Gaiman's gods are thoroughly alive on the page - irascible, visceral,playful,passionate - as he leads us from the beginning of everything to Ragnarok,the inescapable final downfall of the gods. . . .
