(From the publisher):
Nigel Frith's adult epic fantasy brings together the deities and monsters of Northern myth into a fast-moving narrative which blends mystery, horror, suspense and humour. It tells the story of Balder, the god of sunlight, and his love, the Vana Iduna, and how they are finally re-united and recounts the adventures of Odin, Thor and the wicked god, Loki, in their attempts some to preserve, some to end, the hero's life. Giants, dwarves and elves inhabit a landscape of forest and plains, through which the Aesirs of Asgard journey to avert prophesied evils.
