Synopsis

The great Norse myths are woven into the fabric of our storytelling - from Tolkien, Alan Garner and Rosemary Sutcliff to Game of Thrones and Marvel Comics. They are also an inspiration for Neil Gaiman's own award-bedecked, bestselling fiction. Now he reaches back through time to the original source stories in a thrilling and vivid rendition of the great Norse tales. Gaiman's gods are thoroughly alive on the page - irascible, visceral, playful, passionate - and the tales carry us from the beginning of everything to Ragnarok and the twilight of the gods. Galvanised by Gaiman's prose, Thor, Loki, Odin and Freya are irresistible forces for modern readers and the crackling, brilliant writing demands to be read aloud around an open fire on a freezing, starlit night.

Norse myths are woven throughout literature, from Tolkein to George R R Martin, and are the inspiration for Neil Gaiman's marvelous fiction. Now Gaiman is returning to the stories he has always loved, to bring us his version of the adventures of Freya, Odin, Loki and Thor. This tremendous retelling of these stories of gods and giants has a mythical allure that will entice you to read these epic, witty and passionate tales again and again.
