Exciting re-imagining of Norse mythology

Most myths have some some basis in fact. As Matt Larkin explains, even the Prose Edda suggested Odin was originally a man. In the first of a series, Larkin takes the same approach - while showing the beginnings of Odin's struggles to unite the 9 tribes in a dying Ice Age land. I have read several authors try to imagine the beginnings of this most fatalistic of mythologies. But Larkin's re-imaginning, set in an Ice Age bedeviled by evil in the mist that escaped from below in an earlier cataclysm, gives us a dark, gritty, fast-paced tale of the lives of the men and women who would become gods. The best re-imagining of Norse mythology since Snorri compiled them.
