Reviews

"Mortals, do you dare follow the god of "strength and weather and mighty muscles" on a tour through Norse mythology?...Larson's dark, operatic tableaux of melodramatically posed figures clad in outsized headgear and geometrically patterned cloaks add a comically Wagnerian tone... Return trips are definitely in the offing." --Kirkus Reviews

"In this third entry in the Secrets of the Ancient Gods series... Shecter assumes the rough-and-tumble voice of 'everyone's 'good-buddy' god, ' Thor, introducing more than a dozen myths and the gods central to them.... Larson's delicately etched pen-and-ink illustrations have a creepy, Goreyesque edge... Extensive character descriptions, source notes, and a glossary round out this entertainingly informal introduction to Norse legends." --Publishers Weekly
