Publisher's Summary

"A surprise from the author of Chocolat," New York Times best-selling author Joanne M. Harris, "this pacy adult fantasy is narrated by Loki, the Norse god of fire and mischief" (Vogue).

This 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. A number-one best seller in the UK, The Gospel of Loki 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.

Using her lifelong passion for the Norse myths, New York Times best seller Joanne M. Harris has created a vibrant and powerful fantasy novel that the Sunday Sun recommends "to her long-standing audience with wit, style and obvious enjoyment"; The Sunday Times claims it "lively and fun"; and The Metro adds that "Harris has enormous fun with her antihero...this mythical bad boy should beguile fans of Neil Gaiman".

    "Fantastic tale"

    The performance of this book was superb! The tale itself is well written, funny and engaging and the narrator really brought it to life.

    "A Fun Read"

    A truly enjoyable light read. This book does a lot of summary of stories in Norse mythology based on low key little more beef and it would have been 5 stars.

    It is hard to say which was most spectacular, the story or the performance of it!

    Anyone familiar with Norse myth will revel in this title.

    "Loved this!"

    I enjoyed every minute of this story. It almost seems like a pre-sequal to Runemarks. There are so many similarities between the two books.

    "Norse, parahistory, very entertaining!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yep. The reader did VERY well using inflection and attitude to reflect different characters. The story was good and oddly coming first-person from the "villain" and made me want to learn ancient norse runes.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gospel of Loki?

    Loki and Hades getting down before bringing the curtain down on the Aesir.


    What about Allan Corduner’s performance did you like?

    Pretty much all of it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Generally, no, though there were a few times where I was like "Hell yeah, X is going down" just for it to happen. Not saying it was predictable, but inevitable in a good way.


    Any additional comments?

    Book 2? From Odin's perspective, if done well will rock the genre.

    "A fun romp through mythology"

    This story stays true to the classic tails... From an certain point of view. It made me think and view the Norse myths from angles I had not considered. I'll be listening to this again.
