I read The Gospel of Loki a couple of years ago and it was one of those books that really grew on me. It stuck with me long after I finished the last page and I really think that it ignited my interest in Norse mythology. I had assumed it would be a standalone novel, so you can imagine my delight when I saw it was getting a sequel.
I absolutely adore Neil Gaiman and snapped up a copy of this book in hardback within a month of publication. I'm a huge fan of mythology, but know so little about Norse mythology. This is a great introduction to the world of Thor, Loki, Odin, and the whole host of gods and goddesses that inhabit Asgard that have becoming more and more mainstream.
