When Thor returns with a trophy after a fight against Ymir, king of the frost giants, Thor's brother Tyr becomes jealous of his brother's exploits. He feels people have forgotten he gave up a hand in order to leash Fenris. So he sets out on a quest with the Enchantress's little sister, Lorelei on a quest to steal Surtur's sword in order to prevent Surtur from killing Odin during Ragnarok.

I thought Tyr, the Norse God of War and the eldest son of Odin, was an odd choice for the main character of

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

'The Sword of Surtur' is the latest entry in the Marvel Legends of Asgard. This book tells the story of Tyr, who driven by a feeling of inadequacy and loyalty, tries to prevent Ragnarok by stealing the Sword of Surtur

This was a fun book to read, and it was actually a faster read than it looks like. I was reading it over breaks at work, but some readings from an online class took precedence and I had to set this aside, but once I was able to start reading it again, I finished it pretty quickly. It is about Thor's older brother Tyr, the Asgardian God of War. I knew very little about this character (other than his appearing in the occasional issue to fight with Thor for some reason or another), so it was fun to ...more

I have been provided with an advance copy of the new Legends of Asgard book The Sword of Surtur by CL Werner, published by Aconyte Books, so here is the honest review I promised in exchange for the book.

So here is an important disclaimer which is always important to put out there first. I have a casual work contact with Asmodee to demonstrate board games for them in stores and at conventions. Asmodee being the parent company of Aconyte the publisher.

I am going to try my best to not let that clou

The Marvel Legends of Asgard range is one of the more interesting series that Aconyte Books is producing, due in large part to the fact that I have to keep reminding myself when reading them that these stories are actually taking place in the Marvel Universe. The Sword of Surtur, and the previous book in the series the Head of Mimir, feel like more than simple super hero stories, stories about larger than life costumed heroes fighting criminals; these books are huge, sweeping fantasy epics that ...more

I received a copy of The Sword of Surtur in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The Sword of Surtur: A Marvel Legends of Asgard Novel, written by C.L. Werner is the latest Marvel Novel to grace the stands. It's also a bit of a dream come true for me, seeing C.L. Werner working with Marvel (and more specifically, with Asgard).
Even the God of War has the ability to feel overshadowed by his younger brother. So when Thor brings yet another victory to Odin's feet, Tyr may not be in the best min

A Legends of Asgard novel

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

When Thor's half-brother Tyr becomes jealous of the thunder god's celebrated achievement, it doesn't take much for the sorceress Lorelei to lure him into her scheme to steal a fragment of Surtur's sword from Muspelheim.


If you decide to read The Sword of Surtur, you should be prepared for a high level of immersion in Norse mythology - I say this because some o

Epic Fantasy is not my usual read, but I enjoy Thor type movies. I was actually looking for books to get for my friends pre-teen age children because I am way out of touch with that realm of new type of reading!

I have to say that this book at first had me skeptical, but after about the third chapter I was hooked! I even read aloud snippets to my husband who is a fan of anything Marvel! He can’t wait to see if this comes out in audio form.

Tyr, the God of War does so much for his people and family

I absolutely love Norse mythology, and I have loved what Marvel has produced in the Legends of Asgard series. So I was so excited to see Tyr, the God of War and older brother to Thor, get featured in "The Sword of Surtur". The book really feels like an epic fantasy, instead of how you would think the story would go with the Marvel movies or the comic books.

This book ticked all my boxes and absolutely blew my expectations out of the water. I love how the author stayed true to the Norse Mythology

I enjoy Norse mythology. A lot. Maybe too much? Nah! No such thing! "The Sword of Surtur" is a brilliantly written novel focusing on Tyr (you might have only heard of him as Thor's big brother, but he's also the God of War). It's adventurous, exciting, and very easy to read. I loved it and want more books like this - especially if they are written by C L Werner!

My thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley. This review was written voluntarily and is e

On one hand this is the story of a man trying to prove his value to his family. On the other hand it's a story about a man trying to prove that his pride did not put him in a position that he cannot handle. And then there's his half brother who goaded him into the whole situation in the first place just to start a fight between himself and his younger brother. Tyr going through the realm of fire all for a sword was a good story. I'm familiar with the Marvel comics Thor stories and Tyr rarely sho ...more
