Fun Facts About Norse Mythology – Dwarves, the Go-To Guys

If a dwarf in Norse mythology could play any character in modern movies, he would play Q from the James Bond films.  Q was responsible for providing Bond with a myriad of marvelous spy technology and wondrous inventions.  (Mood music HERE). Similarly, when the gods of the Norse Pantheon wanted some fantastic object custom-made, they knew whom to call.

One of the coolest dwarf-made toys is a ship made by the Sons of Ivaldi for Freyr.  Skidbladnir was known as the best of ships and nifty-keen because of its ability to be folded up like a napkin and stored in a pocket.  When unfolded, however, it was large enough to hold all the gods complete with their weapons of war.  Its sails always found a good wind and therefore Skidbladnir could be navigated anywhere.

Q would have been jealous.

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.

Dani & the Immortals is available for the Kindle HERE

  1. Dwarves like Q. That is so original, great, and true that I’m all shades of jealous that i didn’t write or think of that. Well done!
