Reviews

A terrific, detailed introduction of these wonderful stories and the pantheon of characters in them . . . their writing is vivid and lively . . . a great addition to any library. -- Rosi Hollinbeck * San Francisco Book Review *
With recent volumes, such as Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology and J. R. R. Tolkien's posthumously published The Legend of Sigurd & Gudrun, appealing more to readers strictly interested in creative takes on classic Norse tales, this title attracts new readers by offering solid retellings and contextual information that serve as a valuable introduction to this rich tradition. * Library Journal *
