In her prime, Freya was the Norse goddess of love, sexuality, magic, beauty, war, and death; and that’s just to start. She commanded armies, conquered kingdoms, and seared her name across the known world. But time is cruel. Seasons turned, and she was left behind. All that’s left of her legacy, empire, and faith… is Freya herself. And she is about to make one hell of a comeback.

“Matthew Laurence has written a fantastic character, and working with Rovio Entertainment to launch Freya is an exciting opportunity. Freya’s story as a forgotten god in a modern world is fresh and compelling. I can’t wait for readers to meet her.”
Erin Stein, Imprint Publisher, Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group
