The Gospel of Loki Synopsis

The novel is a brilliant first-person narrative of the rise and fall of the Norse gods - retold from the point of view of the world's ultimate trickster, Loki. It tells the story of Loki's recruitment from the underworld of Chaos, his many exploits on behalf of his one-eyed master, Odin, through to his eventual betrayal of the gods and the fall of Asgard itself. Using her life-long passion for the Norse myths, Joanne Harris has created a vibrant and powerful fantasy novel.

The Gospel of Loki Press Reviews


'a fun read, and a nice new slant on the old tales' Fortean Times

'A chatty, cheeky style that works a treat' SFX


'Moves at a cracking pace and it's a lot of fun' -- Jonathan Hatfull SciFiNow
