Publisher's Summary

Odin, jarl of an Aesir tribe, earns the attention of a goddess by slaying a giant. His valor prompts her to give him the apples of immortality - in return for marching against the gods of Vanaheim. He must risk everything to overthrow those he once worshipped, but doing so offers him the only chance to free the world from the mists of Niflheim. And before he can march on gods, he must make his own people see him as one.

Masterful story telling

Would you consider the audio edition of The Apples of Idunn to be better than the print version?

The characters are brought to life with the voices. It is very entertaining.

What did you like best about this story?

I felt the characters were well rounded. Intrigued to learn more.

What does Michael Pauley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As mentioned above, Michael Pauley gave an identity to each character that added weight to the words spoken. Excellent narration.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When he learns there will be a child

Any additional comments?

Excellent narration. I look forward to hearing more books by narrator and hope this series continues. Enjoying the journey.

My first book of Norse Mythology

I've been told that this book does not follow the Norse mythology and that it is just a novel, but when I first listened to it I genuinely thought that it was a very descriptive and captivating narrative of the story of Odin. Starting from when he was still a human.
I loved it!
