Fun Facts About Norse Mythology – Hanky Panky Loki

The bad boy of the æsir is Loki.  Disarmingly handsome and witty, Loki represents one of the most intriguing figures in the Norse pantheon. His father was a giant (Farbauti), but his mother was a slender young thing (Laufey). Loki’s special talents included shape shifting, deceit, and flyting (the exchanging of insults).

He was also quite gifted with the opposite sex.   Loki had a son with his wife, Sigyn. With his giantess girlfriend, Loki fathered a serpent, a wolf, and a daughter. In addition, Loki gave birth to the horse Sleipnir (go HERE for the sordid details).

One of Loki’s mischievous episodes involved Thor’s beautiful wife, Sif, known for her gloriously long and golden tresses.  After their tryst, Loki cut Sif’s hair for a practical joke.  Thor was not amused.  When Thor threatened to rearrange his face, Loki agreed to buy a gold headpiece from renowned smithy dwarfs (Sons of Ivaldi) to replace Sif’s hair.  Oddly enough, Thor seemed less upset about the loss of his wife’s honor than her hair.

We all have our priorities.

DANICOVER7When Dani was a teen, she had it all; a starring role in her own television series, a wonderful family, and her health. A few years later, everything has changed for the worse—and her time is running short. All she wants to do before she dies is to fall in love, but when she’s kidnapped and taken to Asgard of Norse mythology, she becomes enmeshed in a quarrel between immortals. Prince Rein lends a hand in her quest to return home, and she begins to think the handsome elf has captured her heart. After a magical artifact goes missing, however, he may be forced to marry another woman to avert a diplomatic catastrophe. To find the artifact and save the prince, Dani must undertake a dangerous quest involving ogres, dark fairies, and underworld criminals. Ultimately, however, she’ll have to defy Odin himself.
