We lusted for an even greater prize: one that can never be lost or stolen or burnt... Raven and his fellow Vikings have suffered. Good men have died. Hard-won treasure has been lost. But for these Norsemen, there is something more precious than gold or silver, and that is fame - for this is what a warrior leaves behind when he has breathed his last. And so the brotherhood sail for Constantinople, the city they call Miklagard. There, it is rumoured, both riches and glory are to be found, but the journey takes them through unknown and dangerous waters - from the wind-whipped marshes of the Camargue to the treachery and faded glory of a once-mighty Rome. For Raven and the Wolfpack there is a high price to pay for the fame they seek. Miklagard's streets may seem paved with gold, but they also run with blood . . . A brilliant, brutal new chapter in the story of Raven, this is historical fiction at its most authentic and exciting.

Amy Lewis is on her way to her grandma's house. She's being chased by a very bad wolf. Galaxies away Loki, Norse God of Mischief and Chaos, is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover and with no idea what he's done wrong--this time anyway. He does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he's forgotten... Amy's and Loki's fates are about to collide. They'll have to work together to defeat gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors. If Loki can remember what he's forgotten, and Amy can convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets, Earthly pleasures, or three day benders, they just might pull it off... I Bring the Fire is for everyone who suspects chaos and mischief makers might have their own redeeming qualities, and anyone who just wants a good fantasy romp through modern Earth, ancient Asgard, and beyond!

Excellent, highly recommended, two thumbs on fire." - Loki, Norse God of Mischief and Chaos (and God of Fire) "Eight hooves up. As one of Loki's children, I approve." - Sleipnir, eight-legged horse child of Loki "This is not an accurate representation of the Norse Pantheon. Pure fantasy, a fairy tale, don't believe a word of it." - Odin, All Father, leader of the Norse Gods "I am supposed to be the hero in Norse Mythology!" - Thor, Norse God of Thunder

She sees, coming up a second time, earth from the ocean, eternally green; the waterfalls plunge, an eagle soars above them, over the mountain hunting fish. After the terrible conflagration of Ragnarok, the earth rises serenely again from the ocean, and life is renewed. The Poetic Edda begins with The Seeress's Prophecy which recounts the creation of the world, and looks forward to its destruction and rebirth. In this great collection of Norse-Icelandic mythological and heroic poetry, the exploits of gods and humans are related. The one-eyed Odin, red-bearded Thor, Loki the trickster, the lovely goddesses, and the giants who are their enemies walk beside the heroic Helgi, Sigurd the Dragon-Slayer, Brynhild the shield-maiden, and the implacable Gudrun. This translation also features the quest-poem The Lay of Svipdag and The Waking of Angantyr, in which a girl faces down her dead father to retrieve his sword. Comic, tragic, instructive, grandiose, witty, and profound, the poems of the Edda have influenced artists from Wagner to Tolkien and speak to us as freely as when they were first written down seven hundred and fifty years ago.
