Exile of Fenrir
“We were only five when the gods looked at us in fear.”
Fenrir is speaking of him and his siblings. As the children of the trickster Loki, they have good reason to be feared. However, this is not the reason the gods of Asgard fear them. Fenrir, Jormungand, and Hél are some of the few shapeshifters in Norse Mythology. Fenrir has the ability to shapeshift into a great wolf and is capable of taking on even Asgard’s mighty gods.
This is Fenrir’s story of his time in Asgard. His journey takes him from Valhalla, the great hall of Odin, to the depths of the Underworld, all the while facing triumph and tragedy and uncovering the mysteries of the Norse mythological world.
Join Fenrir in his tale of adventure, conflict, and heartache as he is forced to live amongst the gods of Asgard.
Exile of Fenrir is an original work rooted within the world of Norse Mythology. In this novel, Fenrir takes part in and witnesses some of the mythological tales that were told by our real world’s Vikings.
I received a charming paperback copy of Exile 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.
