Herein are 24 illustrated easy-to-read Norse and Viking legends, including the Song of the Valkyries, rewritten with young adults in mind. Here you will find the legends of the Norse and Viking inhabitants of Asgard – Odin, Freya, Thor, Loki, Heimdall, Baldur and many others. These are the legends of the actions and feats of these high-dwellers before time itself had begun. These legends also give valuable background to the Marvel movies of Odin, Thor, Loki, Heimdall, Sif and others which will give you the reader more understanding about how the legends of Thor, Loki and other Scandinavian legends came to be.

But do not be put off - these are the contemporary versions of these legends and stories re-written with young adults in mind, and not the heavy, hard to understand versions which academics would revel in.

The legends in this volume are:

I the beginning

II. Yggdrasil

III  odin at the well of wisdom

IV  odin and the all-wise giant

V  the stolen wine part i.

VI  the stolen wine part ii

VII. Loke’s theft

VIII  thor’s hammer

XI  the theft of the hammer

XII  the finding of the hammer

XIII  the apples of life Parts I & II

XV loke’s wolf

XVI  the fenris wolf

XVII  defeat of hrungner

XVIII  thor and skrymer

XIX thor and the  utgard-king

XX  thor and the midgard serpent

The Valkyries’ song

XXI  the dying baldur

XXII  the punishment of loke

XXIII  the darkness that fell on asgard

This volume also includes a vocabulary which gives the spelling and pronunciations of the names of the characters in the legends.

So, we invite you to curl up with these illustrated, ancient Northern legends and immerse yourself in the tales and lore of yesteryear.
