Description

‘Burning ice, biting flame; that is how life began’

The extraordinary Scandinavian myth cycle is one of the most enduring, exciting, dramatic and compelling of the world’s great stories.

The Penguin Book of the Norse Myths compellingly retells these stories for the modern reader, taking us from the creation of the world through the building of Asgard’s Wall to the final end in Ragnarok. You’ll discover how Thor got his hammer and how Odin lost his eye, the terrible price of binding the wolf Fenrir and why Loki the trickster can never be trusted.

The Norse myths are as thrilling to read as they are of vast cultural and historical importance. In this gripping book Kevin Crossley-Holland brings alive the passion, cruelty and heroism of these unforgettable stories.
