I received a charming paperback copy of Exhile of Fenrir recently from Author Peter Curson. This tale follows the legendary Norse gods, chronicling the life journey of Loki’s son, Fenrir.
I’ve always loved mythology and with Norse mythology being a particular favourite of mine, I was eager to dive into this read. I was not disappointed.
When Fenrir is brought to Asgard, home of the Gods, he is forced to submit to their ways or face grave punishment. We witness great injustices dealt to him by his supposed betters owing to the nature of his birth race.
Fenrir presents as a strong minded individual that struggles to find the balance between logic and instinct. His story flows beautifully with a reliable second person narration. I got a real sense of the urgency that he was feeling and was rooting for him from beginning to end.
This was a remarkably crafted tale of love, loss, and ancestry that touched my heart.
I would rate this book 5 stars.
Recommended for lovers of fantasy and mythology.
