Tales of Valhalla
Norse Myths & Legends,
by Martyn Whittock and Hannah Whitock.
Valhalla and its pantheon of gods and heroes have always fascinated readers. Here they are dramatically retold and set in the wider Viking world. This rich new interpretation includes both myths (stories, usually religious, which explains origins, why things are as they are, the nature of the spiritual), and legends (stories which attempt to explain historical events and may involve historical characters, but are told dramatically and may include supernatural events). We encounter anew the might Odin, Loki the trickster, Thor on his many adventures, giants, Valkyries, Sigur the dragon-slayer. and more.
