- In stock
It is a dark time for Asgard. The Allfather is trapped in a bewitched Odinsleep, inspiring an all-out assault from the Frost Giants. They evade the gods' defenses with uncommon ease, as if guided by augury. Heimdall, a quick-witted young warrior still finding his place amongst Asgard's defenders, believes it no coincidence that Odin lies enchanted and that the Giants are so well-informed. Sneaking into Odin's inner chambers, he discovers that the severed head of Mimir, a great source of wisdom, is missing. Accompanied by his sister, Lady Sif, Heimdall must quest across the Ten Realms to retrieve it, lest mighty Asgard fall.

"Mimir is packed with action and ideas, many of which come from Norse mythology itself... a book that is not quite fantasy or science fiction, but a mash up of the two genres... and then adds more action that I have ever read in such a book. For readers who enjoy their fantasy full on and nonstop, this will be a great read." -- SF Book
