Return to Asgard : Thor

By Justine Werklund All Rights Reserved ©

Adventure / Fantasy

Blurb

Orphan Jack, is a troubled teen. Expelled from yet another school, as a last resort, his parents send him to live with his aunt in the sleepy town of Burden. A chance for him to start over again. There he meets the beautiful, yet aloof, Everly, whom, not only seems strangely familiar, but has secrets about Jack she's not willing to share. After an attack almost kills him, she finally agrees to tell him the truth: Jack is a Nordic god. Not just any god either, but Thor the god of thunder. He must unravel the dark secrets that surround the devastation of his kind, as well as unlock the memories that lay dormant in his mind. All the while trying to escape death and battling the throws of high school.

by Justine Werklund

A guide to pronouncing some of the Old Norse words used in the book:

Aesir (eh-seer) - the Norse gods of Old.

Alfheim (ahlf-hehm) - the world of the Light Elves.

Asgard (as-guard) - the Aesir and Asyunjur’s home world.

Asyunjur (a-sin-yur) - the Norse goddesses of Old.

Baldr (bah-l-der) - the god of innocence. He is the most beautiful of all the gods and was given the gift of invincibility by his mother Frigg. The one weakness, mistletoe, which Loki found out about and manipulated Baldr’s twin brother, Hodr, into killing Baldr, ultimately setting the gears in motion for Ragnarok.

Bifrost (bi-vr-oh-st) - the rainbow bridge connecting Midgard and Asgard which was destroyed during Ragnarok.

Bróðir (bra-theer) - Norse word for brother. A term used by Finna.

Eir (ehr) - the goddess of healing

Fenrir (fen-rear) - Loki’s son, who is also a wolf. Killed Odin during Ragnarok.

Folkvangr (folk-van-ger) - After the Aesir - Vanir war, Odin and Freya agreed to share all warriors who fall during battle. Odin will take half to Valhalla while Freya take the other half to her domain. Folkvangr is often depicted as a meadow.

Hodr (haw-der) - Baldr’s blind brother, the one who was manipulated by Loki to throw the mistletoe spear that killed Baldr

Heill (H-eyel) - a formal greeting, similar to “hello”

Jotunn (s.) (yo-tune); jötnar (pl.) (yo-tun-ar) - the Old Norse word for Giants.

Jörmungand (yo-mun-gan) - the giant serpent that circles the Earth; Loki’s son; that falls from the sky during Ragnarok and kills Thor.

Loki (lo-key) - the trickster god. He is half Giant, half Aesir. Usually he cause more trouble than good, though he has helped Thor in several adventures.

Mjölnir (m-ole-neer) - Thor’s hammer. Was constructed by dwarfs and was originally for Loki, but Loki’s deception backfired and it ended up choosing Thor as it’s wielder.

Mimir (mee-mer) - The god of knowledge. Before Ragnarok, Mimir was beheaded by a Frost giant and Odin found the head and used it for council. After Ragnarok, Mimir was reborn whole and his human name is Thomas Finley.

Nipt (neept) - Norse word for sister. A term used by Biorn.

Sif (sehf) - Thor’s wife and goddess of the harvest and Earth. Her most prominent trait her golden hair, the colour of crops. It was taken from her by Loki, who gave it to the Giants. Thor then forced the trickster to make a golden wig for Sif.

Thor (th-or) - god of thunder. One of the strongest gods, and is usually depicted as a hothead, little brain and all muscle. He is killed by Jörmungand during Ragnarok.

Útgarða-Loki (ewt-gar-tha lo-key) - the king of the Giants. His name means “other Loki” and was used in mythology as a way to differentiate between him and the trickster Loki.

Vanir (van-ere) - another class of gods on Asgard. While the Aesir are more war-like, the Vanir are usually gentler. They are almost like a sub-group to the Aesir.

Valhalla (val-hale) - Odin’s domain. Warriors who have perished during battle are brought to Valhalla by the Valkyries. There is a hall of feasts and it is a place of happiness.

Yggdrasil (igg-dra-sil) - The tree connecting all the nine worlds. She is also the tree of knowledge, and in this book, has a human form.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...
