Notes

Description
"When a banished witch falls in love with the legendary trickster Loki, she risks the wrath of the gods in this fierce, subversive debut novel that reimagines Norse myth. Angrboda's story begins where most witch's tales end: with a burning. A punishment from Odin for refusing to give him knowledge of the future, the fire leaves Angrboda injured and powerless, and she flees into the farthest reaches of a remote forest. There she is found by a man who reveals himself to be Loki, and her initial distrust of him grows reluctantly into a deep and abiding love. Their union produces three unusual children, each with a secret destiny, who she is keen to raise at the edge of the world, safely hidden from Odin's all-seeing eye. But as Angrboda slowly recovers her prophetic powers, she learns that her blissful life--and possibly all of existence--is in danger. Angrboda must choose whether she'll accept the fate that she's foreseen for her beloved family...or rise to remake their future. From the most ancient of tales, this novel forges a story of love, loss and hope for the modern age"--,Provided by publisher.
Description
Esta historia comienza en el lugar exacto donde suelen terminar las vidas de las brujas: en la hoguera. Angrboda parece condenada a acabar también allí. Este es el castigo de Odín por haberse negado a contarle el futuro. El fuego la deja herida y sin poderes, por lo que huye a los confines más profundos de un bosque. Allí es donde la encuentra un hombre, Loki, y el recelo inicial de la bruja acabará transformándose en un amor profundo y duradero. De su unión nacen tres hijos peculiares, cada uno con un destino secreto, y que Angrboda está dispuesta a criar en los confines del mundo, escondidos y a salvo de Odín y de su ojo que todo lo ve. Pero a medida que Angrboda recupera lentamente sus poderes proféticos, descubre que su idílica vida, y seguramente toda la existencia, está en peligro. Con la ayuda de la feroz cazadora Skadi, con quien comparte un vínculo cada vez más estrecho, Angrboda deberá elegir si aceptar el destino que ha visto para su querida familia. o alzarse y reescribir el futuro.
