From the author of The Autumn Castle comes a dark tale of immortal love and loss that brings together Norse gods and mortals. Taking a job on an isolated island in the Sea of Norway, scientist Victoria Scott wants a quiet place to finish her doctoral thesis. But Victoria isn’t prepared for the strange shadows outside her cabin window, the rumors of a murderous hag who sucks one’s soul during sleep, and the tales of mythic monsters lurking in the forest. More frightening than the island’s nightmarish mysteries––to Victoria, everything is hauntingly familiar. When an enigmatic stranger appears on the island, Victoria’s sense of foreboding peaks. For she learns that they are connected by a conflict centuries old—one that can end only with her death…

In this inventive, short, yet perfectly formed novel inspired by traditional Norse mythology, Neil Gaiman takes readers on a wild and magical trip to the land of giants and gods and back. In a village in ancient Norway lives a boy named Odd, and he's had some very bad luck: His father perished in a Viking expedition; a tree fell on and shattered his leg; the endless freezing winter is making villagers dangerously grumpy. Out in the forest Odd encounters a bear, a fox, and an eagle—three creatures with a strange story to tell. Now Odd is forced on a stranger journey than he had imagined—a journey to save Asgard, city of the gods, from the Frost Giants who have invaded it. It's going to take a very special kind of twelve-year-old boy to outwit the Frost Giants, restore peace to the city of gods, and end the long winter. Someone cheerful and infuriating and clever . . . Someone just like Odd .

And deep in the black, twisted roots of the World Tree, the three Norns spin and weave the fates of everyone. Vidar must escape his destiny, but the price may be more than anyone can pay . . .

It’s time to kill the king. The city of Lund is under siege. The Bergkonge has sent an army of dark elves and frost giants to put an end to the resistance against his rule once and for all. In Lund the combined powers of the humans, dwarves, light elves, and the guardians of the arm rings of Yngvar wait to face those of the mountain king. For them, destroying the Bergkonge is not a matter of pride or a desire for victory, it is all about survival. Not only for Midgard, but all of the nine realms. Trapped in the dreamworld by the Bergkonge, the children of the heroes of the Danelands struggle to find a way to escape. Their mission to unlock the path to the Bergkonge’s lair complete, they long to return home to help fight in the final battle. As the frost giants attack Lund, it seems as though the guardians of the arm rings of Yngvar will hold the city on their own, but the queen of the dark elves has yet to attack, and the Bergkonge has yet to call his most deadly warriors to the battlefield. More than lives are on the line as the alliance between those in Lund, held together by the heroes of the Danelands, makes its one and only stand against the darkness of the mountain king. Can the heroes of the Danelands triumph over the forces of darkness once more, or are the nine realms doomed to cower for eternity under the shadow of the Bergkonge?
