“A well-told tale of the Norse gods.… Binder’s voice swoops and soars, now angry, now gleeful and now mocking, as Loki tells these stories of the gods run amok.” —Providence Journal
NOT a story for children
They broke into his home. They kidnapped his sons and daughter. Left his wife bound and gagged on the floor, where she choked and died. He had once helped them, been their friend and blood brother. The story of Loki echoes the cycles of violence and revenge playing out across our world. Told with a blend of poetry and prose, humor and horror, it offers no solution — but a glimmer, perhaps of understanding and compassion.
LOKI RAGNAROK is the Viking Armageddon retold by the trickster. In the shadow of prophecy, a family is torn asunder, leading to betrayal, torture, madness and revenge.
It begins with Loki, chained to a rock, listening for the trumpet that will announce the end of the world. Loki tells his side of the story.
“For nearly a thousand years, the tale of Ragnarok – the Norse myth of Apocalypse – has painted Loki as a Satan-like evil. With a fast-paced blend of prose and poetry, award-winning author Mark Binder offers an epic revision of the Eddas with modern resonance.”
– Duval, Between Myth, Lies, and History
LOKI RAGNAROK gives a horrific villain a voice with measures of rage, humor and compassion.
“Mark Binder has a knack for blending ancient mythology with modern storytelling techniques to create a vibrant and contemporary tale.”
