The Gospel of Loki by Joanne M. Harris

With his notorious reputation for trickery and deception, and an ability to cause as many problems as he solves, Loki is a Norse god like no other.  Demon-born, he is viewed with deepest suspicion by his fellow gods who will never accept him as one of their own and for this he vows to take his revenge.

But while Loki is planning the downfall of Asgard and the humiliation of his tormentors, greater powers are conspiring against the gods and a battle is brewing that will change the fate of the Worlds.

From his recruitment by Odin from the realm of Chaos, through his years as the go-to man of Asgard, to his fall from grace in the build-up to Ragnarok, this is the unofficial history of the world’s ultimate trickster.

The first adult epic fantasy novel from multi-million copy bestselling author of Chocolat, Joanne Harris.

Peer & Press Reviews

An entertaining story skillfully written as if it was simply told by Loki himself sitting right next to the reader.

Fantasy Faction

It has the right amount of epic fantasy and tongue-in-cheek humour…  Harris skillfully weaves the stereotypical evil Loki into a self-aware but misunderstood antihero… a wonderful piece by a wonderful author.  Well worth your time.

The Tempered Pen

Harris has enormous fun with her antihero… this mythical bad boy should beguile fans of Neil Gaiman.

Metro

This book is about playfulness and trickery and their darkside… there is a sly humour to this novel – both the narrator’s and at his expense.
