Few civilizations lead such brutish, jealous, and war-like lives, as the Vikings. A culture based on conquering and strength, the Vikings had deep-seated beliefs in gods who were just as problematic as their people. These beliefs created a colorful and captivating society of born warriors.

In Norse Mythology: To The Gates of Valhalla, I deconstruct a thriving nation of people and the beliefs, rituals, and myths that helped them become a formidable force in Europe after 800AD. Explore the open waters with me, and I’ll take you on a journey through the best Viking tales!

In this book you’ll read about:

  • Asgard and the gods that rule there
  • The story of Loki and how he almost won
  • How Mjollnir came about and what it did in the world
  • Why Odin only had one eye, and what happened to the other one
  • The adventures of Thor, and some of his greatest conquests
  • The days of the week and how we owe them to the Norse gods

These are stories of adventure, battle, and furious glory! Delve into the dark depths of Norse mythology and be swept away by the past, and its many lessons.

Finally! The BEST Edda!

The presentation is clear and truly gives a pleasant foundation to the sonnets, and why they were deciphered the manner in which they are in the book. It additionally gives a pleasant comprehension about the history, just as the Vikings and their way of life which is a tremendous piece of the sonnets and their experience. This book places it into all the more effectively gotten language, while as yet remaining consistent with what it initially said. Very prescribe!

Amazing.

Coming into the book, I only knew the basics of Norse Mythology so I was excited to learn more about it. It is clear has a great interest in the subject and he put a lot of care into it. These are stories that have been told over and over again and this is another retelling to pass through the countless generations these stories have survived.

A great start for learning about Norse Mythology.

I thought I knew Norse mythology from school. I knew nothing about Norse Mythology. This seems like a great start for learning about Norse Mythology.I was wrong. I have learned so much more. I love that the resources are at the end of the chapters, it makes it easier to research what I want to know more about.

Journey Through the Twisted Mythology .

I found this book to be overall well written. I like the way the author gave the reader a thorough introduction to the actual myths prior to presenting them. Here, the reader gets chatacter info that is very useful by the time the myths are presented. Very nicely made book and filled with illustrations. Should be enjoyed for years to come.
