Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Green has given me more than I could have ever asked for. While most people are familiar with Roman and Greek mythology, my passion has always been about the Aesir. Green tells the story of Asgard from the founding of 'Yggdrasil' The World Tree, to Odin's vision of the day of Ragnarock in one continuous narrative. This book is perfect for research or for those who just enjoy a good story.
