Joanne Harris signing The Testament of Loki
JOANNE M. HARRIS will be signing THE TESTAMENT OF LOKI at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Friday 18th May from 6 – 7pm
The world has ended. Ragnarok has come to pass. Asgard has fallen and the old gods have been defeated.
Loki, who betrayed every side and still lost everything, is spending an eternity lashed to the side of a rock in the deepest and darkest prison in all the Worlds. For centuries, he and his fellow gods are forgotten as the world of humans moves on into the modern age and they become nothing more than fairy tales.
But Loki knows how to play the long game. As mankind once again starts to dream of the Norse Gods, albeit through the medium of video games, he plans an escape through the river Dream. To his surprise, he finds himself inhabiting the body of a teenage girl, Jumps, whose insecurities, problems and obsessions come as a shock. As they share the same corporeal form, however, Loki’s confidence and Jumps’ self-doubt begin to soften each other and they develop an unexpected bond. But Loki is not the only one to have escaped back into the world of humans….
