2020 IBPA Award Winner: “Even if, like me, you have a lifelong obsession with Norse myths, I promise you you’ve never seen them like this.” —Lev Grossman
In the midst of a bloody battle between giants, Asgardian gods, and humans, deceit and betrayal run wild. One warrior must fight to discover who she can trust and beat the odds to determine the ultimate fate of her people.
She trained her whole life to become the strongest warrior of Jotunheim, to become the beloved champion of her gods. But when the time came to finally prove her strength, Vei was cast into the sea by the very god she fought for.
Rescued by a Viking ship, Vei returns to Jotunheim, home of the legendary giants. There she finds herself caught in the Meistarileikir, a bloody game between the humans, the giants, and the gods of Asgard that will determine who will have the right to rule the land of Midgard. Having lost the confidence of her own god, Vei must take her place in the Meistarileikir and fight not only for the control of Midgard, but for her very life, in this epic battle against daring warriors, fearsome monsters, and even the gods themselves. A bestseller in Sweden, Vei weaves together an incredible tale that pits man against God and God against God in an outstanding Hunger Games-meets-Norse mythology graphic novel.
