‘THE MONSTROUS CHILD’ by Francesca Simon

I bought this book last week and couldn’t put it down. I love mythology books and this is about the life (albeit eternal) of Hel, the Queen of Hel in Norse mythology. Banished to Hel by Odin she spends most of her time brooding on the wrongs done to her.

Brilliant book, and the funny thing is the next book I started to read followed on from this one, although it was by a completely different author. Obviously, both authors followed the tales of Norse mythology.
