About this title

Synopsis:

I come to Jötunheim to fight and conquer such evil giants as you are . . . In the action-packed stories of Norse mythology, both gods and mortal heroes speak loudly and swing mighty weapons. In A. & E. Keary’s dramatic retelling of these beloved old myths, a wise hero named Odin rules the great city of Asgard, keeping guard over the earth and waging war against evil giants. Tales of Norse Mythology relates his remarkable exploits, along with those of many others, including Thor, Odin’s headstrong, warlike son; Baldur, who awoke to find the shadow of death in his heart; and Frey, the king of the elves who brought summer wherever he went. There are treacherous villains, like Loki, who became wicked upon discovering the half-burnt heart of a woman. Mythical creatures abound, from the great and fearful serpent Jörmungand to mischievous dwarfs working in gold and diamond mines. The stories also lead readers through many fantastic realms like the Abodes of Death. with its beds of unrest, , curtains of weariness, and walls of despair. In Tales of Norse Mythology you will discover: · What Odin gave up for a draught of wisdom · Why cunning dwarfs mixed the blood of a giant with honey into a golden mead · Which mysterious maidens run the golden threads of time through their cold fingers · What happened to those who ate Idūna’s powerful apples · What Tyr sacrificed to keep others safe from the savage wolf Fenrir · How the mischievous Loki was severely punished for his evil-doings · And much more! This incredible volume will keep readers completely engrossed in these dramatic myths of valor, magic, and danger.
