aesir kidsTHE AESIR KIDS. They’re the children of the Norse gods, with incredible strength, magical weapons and monsters for pets. They’ve got problems with school, bullies, family issues and attacks by giants. And when Asgard, the home of the gods, is threatened with utter destruction, it’s up to the children of Thor, Sif, Loki, Freya, Balder…along with some very extraordinary friends…to save it. THE AESIR KIDS tells the story of… THRUD, the teenage daughter of Thor, who has to balance fighting trolls and giants with her after-school job waiting tables at Valhalla… FIRE, young master of flame, the son of the three mysterious Norns and perhaps the key to saving the Nine Worlds… MAGNI AND MODI, Thrud’s younger brothers, whose strength is matched only by their knack for getting into trouble… ULL, the greatest skier of the gods…except for, maybe, SKADE, the four-year-old goddess of skiing… TJALFI, the human boy who can run like the wind… ROSKVA, Tjalfi’s sister, who can hear something happening many miles away… FORSETI, the level-headed son of Balder, who’s as good with a bow as he is with a written test… NOSS, the beloved daughter of the Goddess of Love… HELA, the sensitive little girl who hates her destiny of growing up to be the Goddess of Death… Along with other gods, godlings, light-elves, trolls, dwarfs and creatures, these young heroes must find a way to save the universe…and find the core of courage within themselves. THE AESIR KIDS is a fantasy novel based on many actual characters from Norse mythology. It’s the first published collaboration between author James Grant Goldin and his eleven-year-old daughter, Charlotte Goldin.
