The story begins on a calm day in Midgard. But... the serenity is disturbed by sinister rumblings from the depths of the earth: the monstrous beast Garm is breaking free. Ragnarök, the end of the world, is about to begin. In this captivating story, we will get to know not only the Norse gods Odin, Thor, Frey and the most intriguing of them all, Loki, but also the evil forces of the serpent of Midgard and the wolf Fenrir. They will challenge the gods in a battle if cosmic dimensions. This will lead to tremendous chaos and an apocalyptic end. The story of Ragnarök is accompanied with commentaries and explanations. The mesmerising illustrations breathe life into the story; rich with authentic symbols, they remind one of an enigmatic grimoire, and draw the reader's eyes to them over and over again. The story of Ragnarök is based on Iceland's most important contribution to Western literature: Völuspá (The Prophesy of the Sorceress) from the Poetic Edda. The poem is over 1000 years old but is preserved in the manuscript Codex Regius dating to around 1270.
