Freyja's Daughter by Book Resume:

A beautiful bounty hunter created by the goddess Freyja is out to find her kidnapped sister in this paranormal romance series debut. Though bounty-hunter Faline Frey has magical abilities, she’d rather rely on perp files and handcuffs than her huldra powers to take down a suspect. With the local Hunter authority out keep supernatural Wild Women like her in check, it’s better to avoid their unwanted attention. All that changes the night she heads out for a date, hoping to get lucky—and gets screwed instead. Now her sister is missing, the Hunters are on her tail, and the one person offering to help is her ex-lover, Officer David Garcia, who has just enough ties to the supernatural world to be dangerous. To unite her fellow Wild Women against their common foe, Faline will need to convince them to do the one thing she fears most—exhume their power buried deep beneath centuries of oppression.

The Poetic Genesis of Old Icelandic Literature by Mikael Males Book Resume:

This book assesses the importance of poetry for the Old Icelandic literary flowering of c. 1150–1350. It addresses the apparent paradox that an extremely conservative form of literature, namely skaldic poetry, was at the core of the most innovative literary and intellectual experiments in the period. The book argues that this cannot simply be explained as a result of strong local traditions, as in most previous scholarship. Thus, for instance, the author demonstrates that the mix of prose and poetry found in kings’ sagas and sagas of Icelanders is roughly contemporary to the written sagas. Similarly, he argues that treatises on poetics and mythology, including Snorri’s Edda, are new to the period, not only in their textual form, but also in their systematic mode of analysis. The book contends that what is truly new in these texts is the method of the authors, derived from Latin learning, but applied to traditional forms and motifs as encapsulated in the skaldic tradition. In this way, Christian Latin learning allowed for its perceived opposite, vernacular oral literature of pagan extraction, to reach full fruition and to largely replace the very literature which had made this process possible in the first place.

Eddic, Skaldic, and Beyond by Martin Chase Book Resume:

Eddic, Skaldic, and Beyond shines light on traditional divisions of Old Norse–Icelandic poetry and awakens the reader to work that blurs these boundaries. Many of the texts and topics taken up in these enlightening essays have been difficult to categorize and have consequently been overlooked or undervalued. The boundaries between genres (Eddic and Skaldic), periods (Viking Age, medieval, early modern), or cultures (Icelandic, Scandinavian, English, Continental) may not have been as sharp in the eyes and ears of contemporary authors and audiences as they are in our own. When questions of classification are allowed to fade into the background, at least temporarily, the poetry can be appreciated on its own terms. Some of the essays in this collection present new material, while others challenge long-held assumptions. They reflect the idea that poetry with “medieval” characteristics continued to be produced in Iceland well past the fifteenth century, and even beyond the Protestant Reformation in Iceland (1550). This superb volume, rich in up-to-date scholarship, makes little-known material accessible to a wide audience.

The book begins with an Introduction that helps put Scandinavian mythology in place in history, followed by a chapter that explains the meaning of mythic time, and a third section that presents in-depth explanations of each mythological term.

We learn of the ongoing struggle between the gods, who create the cosmos, and the jötnar, or giants, who aim to destroy it. In the enchanted world where this mythology takes place, we encounter turbulent rivers, majestic mountains, dense forests, storms, fierce winters, eagles, ravens, salmon and snakes in a landscape closely resembling Scandinavia. Beings travel on ships and on horseback; they eat slaughtered meat and drink mead. Spanning from the inception of the universe and the birth of human beings to the universe's destruction and the mythic future, these sparkling tales of creation and destruction, death and rebirth, gods and heroes will entertain readers and offer insight into the relationship between Scandinavian myth, history, and culture.

The Handbook brings together readable, jargon-free essays written by established and emerging scholars from diverse geographic, institutional, gender, and national backgrounds. In particular, it explores how the term "global comics" has been defined, as well the major movements and trends that will drive the field in the years to come.

But is there more to Loki, or have we only scratched the surface? Playing With Fire is part historical exploration, part heartfelt devotional, written from the perspective of a devotee who has walked with this often misunderstood deity for over two decades. Go deeper with Loki and be surprised. Go all the way, and be transformed.

The Prose Edda by Jesse L Byock Book Resume:

The Prose Edda is the most renowned of all works of Scandinavian literature and our most extensive source for Norse mythology. Written in Iceland a century after the close of the Viking Age, it tells ancient stories of the Norse creation epic and recounts the battles that follow as gods, giants, dwarves and elves struggle for survival. It also preserves the oral memory of heroes, warrior kings and queens. In clear prose interspersed with powerful verse, the Edda provides unparalleled insight into the gods' tragic realization that the future holds one final cataclysmic battle, Ragnarok, when the world will be destroyed. These tales from the pagan era have proved to be among the most influential of all myths and legends, inspiring modern works as diverse as Wagner's Ring Cycle and Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.

He went secretly, having assumed the likeness of an old man, and striving thus to disguise himself. But the asas were wiser, for they see into the future, and, foreseeing his journey before he came, they received him with an eye-deceit. So when he came into the burg he saw there a hall so high that he could hardly look over it. Its roof was thatched with golden shields as with shingles..."

Sparks by E. J. Wenstrom Book Resume:

The author of Tides delivers “fierce battles and passionate personal struggles . . . a rewarding escape into a very creative and fully imagined world” (HillRag). Being Chosen by the Gods doesn’t mean much when They have abandoned you. Jordan was raised to save his people from the coming war. All his life he has trained to eliminate the rebel army of demigods and demons foretold to turn the middle realm of Terath to dust. Now, the final battle has arrived. But everything that made Jordan special is stripped away—his prophetic ability to hear the Gods, his leadership over his people, and even his faith. As the rebels send a new threat—the most powerful wizard of all the ages—to destroy Jordan and the people of Haven, he has never felt more lost. So, when the golem who served as Jordan’s only friend and childhood protector disappears, Jordan ventures to solve at least one problem in his dark, broken world, even if it means breaking into the Gods’ home and hunting Them down. No matter the cost, he’ll bring back a soul for his friend . . . or die trying. “The finale delivers on everything the series has been building up to. It is dramatic, oddly sad, and gloriously beautiful . . . I do hope for more prequels, more sequels, more chances to adventure in this vibrant world and walk with these characters, who after this powerful journey, have become closer than family.” —Readers Lane “With each book, Wenstrom gives us more and more depth to her world and characters.” —Danielle DeVor, author of The Marker Chronicles

Asgard: Northern Magic by Olga Kryuchkova; Elena Kryuchkova Book Resume:

This book will acquaint you with many of Norse paganism’s key concepts and practices, specifically those originating in Scandinavia, Germany and Iceland. Norse paganism is the ancient religion of the Germanic peoples and is often associated with runic magic. Runes are ancient symbols that were used by the priests and magicians of long ago during the consecration of acts of magic, while predicting the future and during the assembly of amulets. Norse paganism is a lens for viewing the world that differs from those of the people of the South and East; people developed their own philosophy in the harsh climate of the North. There are several branches of Norse paganism, with one of the main ones being Troth. Troth is a path through which an aspirant may learn about the Norse gods and goddesses as well as about the cultural traditions of the Norse people. Another branch is the runic galdr, which revolves heavily around a constant, magic induced transformation of runes. Galdr is a specific magical technique which magicians use to change the inner and outer worlds according to their own desires. Seidhr is yet another branch of Norse paganism. Like Norse runeology, Seidhr involves various signs and symbols and comes with its own set of techniques, but besides that, the two hold very little in common despite popular misconception. Followers of seidhr come under a trance during which they come to understand the will of the gods. This book is written in a simple and comprehensible manner, as it is intended to serve a wide range of readers interested in ancient occultist teachings, alternate history, mythology, runic magic, runic meditation and ancient Germanic and Scandinavian customs, rituals and beliefs. The authors of this book have worked to forge extensive scattered materials on Norse paganism into one complete work. In engaging with the pages of this book, you will become familiar with the realm of the ancient Northern gods, the prayers recited i

Encyclopedia of Ancient Deities by Charles Russell Coulter,Patricia Turner Book Resume:

Throughout history, humans have pondered the question of their existence. In nearly every society, part of the answer has included some form of god or goddess. For the Mayans, one such deity was Ajtzak, who tried to create humans from wood; for the Yorubas of Africa, Shango controlled the thunder and lightning. The Chinese of the Shang dynasty era worshipped Shang Ti. Evil deities were also part of the answer, as in the case of the Kuvera, the Hindu chief of evil in the Vedic period, and Tu, the Persian or Islamic demon of fatal accidents. All of the known ancient gods, many heretofore obscure or known only from mythological literature, are included in this exhaustive reference work. The focus is on their origins, histories, and functions. The people who believed in each deity are identified, along with alternate names or spellings both old and modern. The descriptions that follow are of the functions, origins and physical nature of the deities. Extensive cross references are provided for alternate spellings and names.
