Publisher’s Synopsis: Freya, the Norse girlgoddess of love and beauty, is looking forward to a fun year at Vanaheim Junior High. But after receiving a mysterious prophecy from her magical jewel named Brising — that she is the key to stopping a big, bad doomsday—she is summoned to Asgard Academy by the mighty god Odin, and told to “bring her magic”. When she accidentally drops her beloved jewel off the Bifrost Bridge, it seems there’s no way she’ll be able to deliver the magic Odin expects of her now. However she soon learns that true magic can come from unexpected places. Will Freya manage to rescue Brising, stop doomsday, and unite her new Asgard Academy schoolmates?
Coming soon: Thunder Girls #2: Sif and the Dwarfs’ Treasure
“Freya has a positive attitude even though she doesn’t want to go to a whole new world. She manages to make friends even while dealing with the loss of her jewel. The mythology is well explained, and the gods and goddesses true to the original portrayals, with a middle grade friendly twist. The covers are bright and colorful, so these will sell themselves to young readers who like magic or fairy stories, and can never have a series long enough to suit them … I have a good collection of Greek and Roman mythology books, but struggle to find Norse title, so will probably purchase this series.”
—Karen Yingling, Library Media Specialist, Ohio USA
“A frothy…series starter to introduce the wide, entertaining mythological world.” (Fantasy. 8-12)
“… this book does not disappointment. A wonderful book that introduces the middle grade reader to Norse Myth.”
“A great, solid, book 1 of this series…I really appreciated the effort into getting much of the Norse mythology right.”
