Heimdall Leads First Heroic Fantasy Prose Novel Set in Marvel's 'Legends of Asgard' Line

'The Head of Mimir' arrives on October 6, but you can preview the excerpt now!

Head of Mimir

The previously announced Marvel prose novels collaboration with Aconyte Books kicks off this October with the release of THE HEAD OF MIMIR by fantasy and horror author Richard Lee Byers.

The Head of Mimir is the first prose novel of the LEGENDS OF ASGARD line, which is set in the legendary realm of Asgard and rich in Norse-inspired mythology. These fantastical stories celebrate heroism, adventure, fate, honor, and myth. Raise a flagon of ale and enjoy tales of the extraordinary exploits of heroes and heroines from the Ten Realms.

The Head of Mimir

In The Head of Mimir, the young Heimdall must undertake a mighty quest to save Odin – and all of Asgard. It is a dark time for Asgard. The Allfather is trapped in a bewitched Odinsleep, inspiring an all-out assault from the Frost Giants. They evade the gods’ defenses with uncommon ease, as if guided by augury. Heimdall, a quick-witted young warrior still finding his place amongst Asgard’s defenders, believes it no coincidence that Odin lies enchanted and that the Giants are so well-informed. Sneaking into Odin’s inner chambers, he discovers that the severed head of Mimir, a great source of wisdom, is missing. Accompanied by his sister, Lady Sif, Heimdall must quest across the Ten Realms to retrieve it, lest mighty Asgard fall.
