The novel is a brilliant first-person narrative of the rise and
fall of the Norse gods - retold from the point of view of the
world's ultimate trickster, Loki. It tells the story of Loki's
recruitment from the underworld of Chaos, his many exploits on
behalf of his one-eyed master, Odin, through to his eventual
betrayal of the gods and the fall of Asgard itself. Using her
life-long passion for the Norse myths, Joanne Harris has created a
vibrant and powerful fantasy novel.
