- Full Description
Very handsomely drawn. In the midst of a bloody battle between giants, Asgardian gods, and humans, deceit and betrayal run wild. One warrior must fight to discover who she can trust and beat the odds to determine the ultimate fate of her people. She trained her whole life to become the strongest warrior of Jotunheim, to become the beloved champion of her gods. But when the time came to finally prove her strength, Vei was cast into the sea by the very god she fought for. Rescued by a Viking ship, Vei returns to Jotunheim, home of the legendary giants. Minor nudity.
There she finds herself caught in the Meistarileikir, a bloody game between the humans, the giants, and the gods of Asgard that will determine who will have the right to rule the land of Midgard. Having lost the confidence of her own god, Vei must take her place in the Meistarileikir and fight not only for the control of Midgard, but for her very life, in this epic battle against daring warriors, fearsome monsters, and even the gods themselves.
A bestseller in Sweden, Vei weaves together an incredible tale that pits man against god and god against god in an outstanding Hunger Games meets Norse mythology graphic novel.
The artwork here is very well done. The giants are impressively GIANT and their interactions with humans is clever and very well done. Our heroine begins the story unconscious and floating on the ocean, as good as dead before she is rescued. But even her rescuers see that she is not one of them, and they nearly toss her back to drown. But with wit and intelligence, she recruits their help in her quest to return and stop the war back in her homeland.
Oversized, which nicely helps enrich the panoramic panels and the unearthly land of legend come to life.
