Perhaps you know the myths.
Furious, benevolent Gods.
A tree that binds nine realms.
A hammer stronger than any weapon.
And someday, the end of everything.
But few have heard of me.
Looking back, it’s easy to know what choices I might have made differently. At least it feels that way. I might have given up on my title. Told my father he was useless, king of gods or no, and left Asgard. Made a life somewhere else.
Maybe I would never have let Loki cross my path. Never have fallen in love.
But there’s no going back.
We were happy once.
And the price for that happiness was the end of everything.
The Goddess of Nothing At All by Cat Rector deserves more than five stars, but that is what I can give on typical rating systems! So know, this is like 500000000☆ for me!!
Norse mythology and LGBTQIA+?! Like this is everything. The characters…the romance…the twists…the writing…I don’t want to write a review, I just want to read this again!!
The mythology is clever, with a unique spin while keeping to the original. The writing is magnificent with powerful characters and backgrounds.
Just go read this. Please and thank you! You won’t be disappointed!!
Thank you to Storytellers On Tour for the free review copy and opportunity to honestly review on the tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Cat Rector grew up in a small Nova Scotian town and could often be found simultaneously reading a book and fighting off muskrats while walking home from school. She devours story in all its forms, loves messy, morally grey characters, and writes about the horrors that we inflict on each other. Currently, she lives in Belgium with her spouse. When she’s not writing, you can find her playing video games, spending time with loved ones, or staring at her To Be Read pile like it’s going to read itself.
The Goddess of Nothing At All is her debut novel.
