Everyone’s favourite trickster god is back for a brand new adventure. We can’t wait to share The Testament of Loki with you on the 17th May 2018. Over the next few days we’ll be giving you a sneak peek at The Testament of Loki.
Ragnarok was the End of Worlds.
Asgard fell, centuries ago, and the old gods have been defeated. Some are dead, while others have been consigned to eternal torment in the netherworld – among them, the legendary trickster, Loki. A god who betrayed every side and still lost everything, who has lain forgotten as time passed and the world of humans moved on to new beliefs, new idol and new deities . . .
But now mankind dreams of the Norse Gods once again, the river Dream is but a stone’s throw from their dark prison, and Loki is the first to escape into a new reality.
The first, but not the only one to. Other, darker, things have escaped with him, who seek to destroy everything that he covets. If he is to reclaim what has been lost, Loki will need allies, a plan, and plenty of tricks . . .
Meet the characters in Loki’s latest adventure . . .
Loki – Your Humble Narrator. Not-quite demon, not-quite god. Handsome, charismatic and brilliant hero of this troubled tale. World traveller, lover of jam tarts and sometime survivor of Ragnarók. Rumours of my death are not entirely inaccurate, still pending, facing enquiry.
Jumps – seventeen-year-old human. Not entirely impossible. Has an inexplicable love of things with pictures of animals on them.
Evan – pizza lover and games freak. RPG player extraordinaire.
Stella – gossip; mean girl; lover of shiny, spangly things. Strangely irresistible to humans of the opposite sex.
Twinkle – fluffy white dog.
Odin – Allfather. Onetime leader of the gods, blood-brother to Yours Truly.
Thor – son of Odin; the Thunderer. All bark, no bite.
Freyja – Warrior Princess. Apparently.
Sleipnir – horse. Kinda.
Jormungand – giant snake.
Smá-rákki – goblin.
Nancy Wickerman – girl of the Folk.
Jonathan Gift – academic with delusions of grandeur.
Gullveig-Heid – the Golden One; the Sorceress. Nasty, vengeful, venal, vain. All my favourite qualities in one irresistible package.
The Oracle – Mimir’s Head. Harbinger of Last Times. Prophet of the New Age. Keeper of Runes. Whisperer of Secrets. As slick as a sackful of weasels, and about as trustworthy.
