Written in Venom is awesome. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I’ve even shared it with friends who have all loved it.
It’s an interesting re-telling, but I didn’t like how any of the gods were portrayed; too black/white.
My favourite re-telling is “Loki: Why I Began the End”. It has humour and not starkly black/white characters.
I think I enjoyed it mostly because it was nice to see Loki not portrayed as just a dick for the sake of being a dick, which I see a lot in modern interpretations of the myth. It definitely has it’s flaws, but all fiction does. I enjoyed it as a story.
thats a good reading list.
thanks for mentioning the “spiritual protection” book, it went straight to my wish-list.
thanks also for mentioning elizabeth’s books. reminds me that i wanted to read more of her work. “trickster, my beloved” is so awesome.
