Excuse me? Can I recommend a book to you? Odin’s Child by Siri Pettersen

Well well well.

I wasn’t sure if day would ever come but here we are. Finally the English translation of my favourite Norwegian fantasy series is on its way to the UK. And it’s on NetGalley! Just look:

Yes I like the cover. No actually I LOVE the cover

I read this a few years ago and in Norwegian the series is complete. Odin’s Child is the first in a trilogy about Hirka a girl who doesn’t fit in.

Let me give you the details:

Title: Odin’s Child

Author: Siri Pettersen

Publication date: 23rd March 2021 (UK)

Synopsis:

An epic fantasy trilogy from Norway about thousand-year-old secrets, forbidden romance, and what happens to those who make a deal with the devil comes at last to the United States!

“Imagine lacking something that everyone else has. Something that proves you belong to this world. Something so vital, that without it, you are nothing. A plague. A myth. A human.”

Fifteen winters old, Hirka learns that she is an Odin’s child – a tailless rot from another world. Despised. Dreaded. And hunted. She no longer knows who she is, and someone wants to kill her to keep it a secret. But there are worse things than humans, and Hirka is not the only creature to have broken through the gates…

‘Odin’s Child’ is unique fantasy with Norse roots. An epic clash of xenophobia, blind faith and the right or will to lead.

The first in a trilogy, Odin’s Child is a thrilling modern fantasy epic.

I originally gave the first book 5 stars 🙂 the second book I gave 3 stars (mainly because I was in a reading slump and didn’t realise) and the final book I gave 4 stars. Its a worthy series or epic proportion.

Go request a copy now!

No I don’t get payed for this. And no I’ve not been asked to do this. This is just me wanting English speakers to read this beauty of a book.

Maybe you have a goal this year to read translated fiction? TA-DA! Here’s your pick!

BTW the ship in here is good! I totally ship them no matter what!

Anyway. Doesn’t it sound interesting? The cover is pretty cool right?
