The Head of Mimir: A Marvel Legends of Asgard Novel (Paperback)
The young Heimdall must undertake a mighty quest to save Odin – and all of Asgard – in the first heroic fantasy novel set in Marvel’s incredible Legends of Asgard
It is a dark time for Asgard. The All-Father is trapped in a bewitched Odinsleep, inspiring an all-out assault from the Frost Giants. They evade the gods’ defenses with uncommon ease, as if guided by augury. Heimdall, a quick-witted young warrior still finding his place amongst Asgard’s defenders, believes it no coincidence that Odin lies enchanted and that the Giants are so well-informed. Sneaking into Odin’s inner chambers, he discovers that the severed head of Mimir, a great source of wisdom, is missing. Accompanied by his sister, Lady Sif, Heimdall must quest across the Nine Realms to retrieve it, lest mighty Asgard fall.

“Epic fantasy at its best. Swords and sorcery, swash-buckling action and illusion, twisting and turning politics of men and gods.”
— SF Crowsnest
“Traditional fantasy fare fueled by its fast-paced story and swash-buckling fun.”
"Mimir is packed with action and ideas, many of which come from Norse mythology itself… a book that is not quite fantasy or science fiction, but a mash up of the two genres... and then adds more action that I have ever read in such a book. For readers who enjoy their fantasy full on and nonstop, this will be a great read."
