Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology, a re-telling of the stories of Norse Gods, was first published in 2017. The brilliantly lively and humorous tales, reimagined by Neil Gaiman, took the reader on an exploration of Asgard with Odin, Thor, Loki, Freya, and many other intriguing characters from the creation of the Nine Worlds and the epic origins of Gods all the way to Ragnarök, the end of the world.
