Joanne M. Harris - The Testament of Loki (2nd Hand Hardback)
Joanne Harris returns with her second homage to Norse mythology in this taut, epic and brilliantly told novel.
The follow up to The Gospel of Loki, The Testament of Loki is part of the Rune series which also includes Runemarks and Runelight. It can be read as a stand-alone story or as part of the longer sequence.
A combination of mythology and playful magic-realism, The Testament of Loki pits the Norse gods against the challenges of a modern world where nothing is quite as they expect.
. . . Ragnarok was the End of Worlds.
Asgard fell, centuries ago, and the old gods have been defeated. Some are dead, while others have been consigned to eternal torment in the netherworld - among them, the legendary trickster, Loki. A god who betrayed every side and still lost everything, who has lain forgotten as time passed and the world of humans moved on to new beliefs, new idol and new deities . . .
But now mankind dreams of the Norse Gods once again, the river Dream is but a stone's throw from their dark prison, and Loki is the first to escape into a new reality.
The first, but not the only one to. Other, darker, things have escaped with him, who seek to destroy everything that he covets. If he is to reclaim what has been lost, Loki will need allies, a plan, and plenty of tricks . . .

"An ingeniously skewed retelling of Norse mythology. It's fun and you'll keep going to the end." - Callum Shephard, Starburst Magazine
"A surprise from the author of Chocolat, this pacy adult fantasy is narrated by Loki, the Norse god of fire and mischief." - Violent Henderson, Vogue.
