'This book is about playfulness and trickery and their darkside...there is a sly humour to this novel - both the narrator's and at his expense.' - The Independent

The rise and fall of the Norse gods - retold from the point of view of the world's ultimate trickster, Loki.

It 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 life-long passion for the Norse myths, Joanne M. Harris has created a vibrant and powerful fantasy novel.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'...a fun read, and a nice new slant on the old tales.' - Fortean Times

'Allan Corduner's charming voicing of our antihero makes us sympathise with him more than we ought to; imaginative accents for the huge cast of gods, giants and demons, and splendid musical effects add to the fun' - The Times

'This book is about playfulness and trickery and their darkside...there is a sly humour to this novel - both the narrator's and at his expense.' - The Independent

'...the first foray into adult fantasy fiction by the author of Chocolat is lively and fun.' - The Sunday Times

'Harris has enormous fun with her antihero...this mythical bad boy should beguile fans of Neil Gaiman.' - The Metro

'...retells the sagas for adults, in all their wintry, saucy, grandiose, melancholy glory.' - The Financial Times

“Norse Myth with a twist”

I loved this; I have been reliably informed that this is not the first time that Joanne Harris has written about the Norse Gods; this is however, the first time she has done so with an adult audience in mind. What she... More
