GODS OF FIRE AND THUNDER
By Fred Saberhagen
Tor/ $24.95/ 319 pages
ISBN 0-765-30201-2

Book Review Haraldur the Northman emerges from Greek mythology [previous volume GOD OF THE GOLDEN FLEECE (2001) and the first three volumes of the Book of the Gods series] only to find himself adventuring among the gods, creatures, and other trapping of Norse mythology. He's soon adventuring with Baldur, a young warrior seeking to rescue his love, the Valkyrie Brunhild who is held captive in a magical ring of flames. Inspired more by the possibility of gold than true love, Hal joins Baldur in his quest. Before they get too far they are irregularly drafted into the troops of the god Wodan in a low-rent version of Valhalla. Reliable Saberhagen mixes gritty reality with myth and adds trademark humor for another enjoyable fantasy. If you are a Saberhagen fan, you'll also find his usual hints of a lost age of super-technology from which the gods may have sprung. -- Paula Guran (Original to this site, January 2003)
