Loki, the Trickster, has a scheme guaranteed to make him the absolute ruler of the Nine Worlds. The only one with a prayer of stopping him is Valda, a 15 year old Dwarf girl who doesn't even know that she's a part of his plan. Everything revolves around Valda... and a magic pendant... and a raven... and some dwarves... and the gods... and the elves... and even a wyrm or two. It's complicated, but Loki's plans are never simple. Along the way Valda has to deal with being turned into a Valkyrie. That's a good thing for a Dwarf girl who has dreamed about traveling outside of her stifling mountain home and seeing the world. What's bad is that the other Valkyries resent her and if she fails at any of her tasks her entire family will be banished to the icy cold wastes of Niflheim. The story takes you on a wild ride, galloping through the familiar people and places of Norse mythology, yet throwing in plenty of twists and turns that stay true to the spirit of the sagas. Valda & the Valkyries is suitable for readers of all ages who are looking for a light-hearted, adventurous story.Biographie de l'auteur :
Mark Neumayer has been soaking up books on mythology almost as long as he has been reading. And that’s despite the best efforts of the elementary school librarian to get him to read Dr. Seuss “with the other kids.” Now he is writing his own books and quite happy about that. Mark has lived in New York, Florida, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Ohio. He currently lives with his wife Theresa and his son Taliesin in North Carolina, where he is working on the next book in the Valda series. You can find him on Facebook.
