This volume has three books inside, each of which stands alone but compliments the volume as a whole. The first book deals with the birth of the giants; the gods who brought about their deaths; and the worlds' creation, destruction, and renewal. The second book focuses on Heimdall's trip to Earth and how Svipdag (Od) became influential to the gods in their conflicts. The third book deals with the journey of the soul in the afterlife, and contains many obscure elements that only lifelong scholars have studied. This volume contains something for everyone interested in Norse Mythology, no matter how familiar with it they may be.
