In “The Goddess of Nothing at All,” Sigyn, a daughter of Odin, has been trying desperately to obtain her title. To her, it seems that everyone in Asgard has a title but her. Sigyn has learned almost every skill there is to know. Since she wants to learn more, she goes on a journey to find Loki so that he teach her how to use wildfire. Her intention is to bring him back from being exiled from Asgard. Sigyn did not expect to fall in love with Loki, much less to get married and have his children.
The Norse gods in this book are not the same as in Marvel movies. The characters are a close representation of the actual gods in Norse mythology. No one really knows that much about Sigyn, except that she was the wife of Loki as well as the Goddess of Fidelity.
I loved the relationship between Loki and Sigyn at the beginning of the book. There were times when I didn’t want to keep reading because I knew that it wasn’t going to end well. The prophecy of Ragnarok that many of the gods talk about says that somehow Loki along with Sigyn will bring about the beginning of the end of Asgard. Dang it prophecy! Why can’t they just live happily ever after?
Sigyn does remain faithful to Loki even when she should cut ties with him. Most people would not stay married to the trickster god after some of the terrible things that he does. He betrays his wife and children in some interesting but awful ways. She stays by his side – always faithful.
There are so many twists and turns in this story. I highly recommend discovering all of the fascinating things that happen to Sigyn and many others because of Loki’s actions.
If you are a fan of Norse mythology, then you will love “The Goddess of Nothing at All.”
I cannot think of anyone that wouldn’t love this book. I’m not saying that they would be totally wrong but also maybe they wouldn’t be right either. Give the book a chance at least.
Thanks to The Write Reads for letting me participate in the book tour. You can find all of the posts from the tour on I’m a Voracious Reader’s blog. Sorry for being late. My Kindle was being a weirdo and kept returning the book to the library.
