Odin still hasn't woken from his Odinsleep with war escalating between Asgard and Jotunheim. A
young Heimdall begins to think something is amiss with Odin. Even though it's forbidden, He and his sister Sif, sneak into Odin's chamber to discover the problem where they see the Head of Mimir is missing. They are discovered exiting the chambers and labeled as traders where they go on a quest to find the missing head with mystical powers.

Byers was a good choice for a book about the Norse Gods. He's w

This was a fun book to read. I did not really know what to expect, but I had fun reading the Tales of Asgard trilogy and hoped this would be along the same lines as that series of stories. I was not disappointed. It focused on the siblings Heimdall and Sif, which turned out to be a nice surprise. The character development was pretty good (view spoiler); both characters are developed rather nice ...more

The world of Marvel's Thor is an interesting one, one that manages to mix together super heroics, Norse mythology, and in later years, science fiction. The recent big screen adaptations have very much pushed the sci-fi angle, which I've enjoyed, but the downside of this is that viewers got very little fantasy with their Thor. The Head of Mimir, in contrast, has very much embraced the mythology behind the original comics, and has provided readers with a high fantasy adventure that's sure to thril ...more

Thank you to NetGalley, Aconyte Books and Marvel Entertainment for providing me with an ARC of The Head of Mimir: A Marvel Legends of Asgard Novel by Richard Lee Byers for an honest review. I've voluntarily read and reviewed this copy. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Being a very enthusiastic Marvel fan, I was super excited to get my hands on a copy of The Head of Mimir. This is my first time reading a Marvel novel instead of the comics and I was immediately sold when I learned that the mai

A rip roaring adventure with a great moral for teens and adults.

I was expecting more from this title. It's a good story but i got the feeling that it could be told in half the pages. And it's not so epic as advertised. ...more

With Asgard under siege by armies of Frost Giants, and Odin trapped in an unusually long Odinsleep, the thoughtful young warrior Hemidall worries that his fellow Asgardians are underestimating their enemies. Speculating that something supernatural is affecting his king’s sleep, Heimdall and his sister Sif slip into Odin’s inner sanctum and find that the Head of Mimir, a powerful relic said to possess great wisdom, has been stolen. Despite the evidence of an intruder, and the suggestion of a trai ...more
