Publisher's Summary

Before the tide of Christianity cast its influence over the greater part of the Western world, magic and tradition were rich in the lives of the Nordic people. These great men and women of lore speak to us of glorified battles, strong noble bloodlines, and honor in the face of adversity. We celebrate the incredible tales of Loki and Frigga and the mighty Thor and the all-powerful Odin. Now the annals of history have offered us the great gift of studying and understanding this magnificent culture. Listeners young and old alike have the opportunity to explore this fascinating and awe-inspiring collection of religious stories and rich traditions belonging to such a complex belief system. 

Discover for yourself the magic and mystery in the stories of Baldur, Heimdall, and Idun. Uncover the ancient tale of the fortification of Asgard, the great kingdom of the Nordic gods, and the chilling story behind the binding of Fenrir.

Even though thousands of years have passed since these cultural stories were first shared around the forges and fires of the Nordic populations, they still entrance and inspire us with the great deeds of the human race and the incredible gods who watched over them. Find your own wealth of inspiration among the tales of the great gods and goddesses once worshipped by the Vikings.

Not worth it

Perhaps as a intro to Norse mythology for children. Minimalistic information an 1/2 stories.

interesting book.

Wish it went into a little more depth (and I'm not sure if I agree with it 100%), but gives you a lot of information & food for thought.

Great short intro and overall overview

I am new to Norse Mythology and found this to be a great overview and quick start to learning. I picked up the Kindle edition as well for reference. Great job!

Great book but a bit repetitive

This was an amazing book and I loved hearing about all aspects of Norse Mythology, although the book itself is repetitive and tends to tell the same stories over and over

Exactly what I've been looking for!

I usually don't like to listen to a book being read but this was actually a very pleasant experience.

Excellent primer

Haven’t read Norse mythology in many years. This was a terrific primer with an introduction naming each deity with a synopsis of their importance before telling a few stories.

The language beautifully descriptive.

Not for those who know things.

Just no. Research the Children of Odin instead. Seriously, if I could get a refund, I would.

Meh

This reads like an undergrad term paper and is kind of all over the place. The historical texts are merely referenced but never quoted. I’d was hoping for a lot more.
