Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A gripping story based on the Siegfried and Brunnhilde tale from Nordic myth.

Sigurd has a fabulous but frightening future predicted. To start with, he must leave everything he knows to go and fight a dragon and from there descend into the Underworld. Sounds bad enough, but when you know that the dragon lives on a futuristic, industrially-ruined moonscape that was once Hampstead Heath, the scene is set for a brutal fight on an epic scale. Unhappily for Sigurd, he meets the love of his life in the underworld, and his efforts to rescue his lover will cause heartache and grief for both of them, and anyone who ever meets them.

Synopsis:

The second in MeLvin Burgess's Volsunga duo, now reissued to appeal to a whole new generation of fans.

Fifteen-year-old Sigurd, son of King Sigmund, is the last surviving member of the Volson clan. His father's kingdom — the former city of London — is gone. And his father's knife, a gift from the gods, has been shattered to dust. 

Armed with a powerful sword forged from the remnants of the knife, Sigurd faces death, fire and torment as he travels through Hel and back to unite his country once again.
