I received a copy of The Sword of Surtur in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The Sword of Surtur: A Marvel Legends of Asgard Novel, written by C.L. Werner is the latest Marvel Novel to grace the stands. It’s also a bit of a dream come true for me, seeing C.L. Werner working with Marvel (and more specifically, with Asgard).

Even the God of War has the ability to feel overshadowed by his younger brother. So when Thor brings yet another victory to Odin’s feet, Tyr may not be in the best mindset. Perhaps that is why he agrees to take on a dangerous adventure.

One that, if it works out the way he hopes, could very well save his father. That alone would make all the risk worth it. And so, Tyr, Bjorn Wolfbane, and Lorelai set out to steal the sword of Surtur from where it lies: in Muspelheim.

“But one didn’t ignore the All-Father, not even when you were the God of War.”

The Sword of Sutur is the perfect read for any fan of Marvel, who also appreciates the origin of the world Thor sprung from. This is a novel that merges lore and legend with the fantastical elements of Marvel, and it does so seamlessly.

This novel really is everything I could have asked for. It has one of my favorite epic authors, combined with Marvel, as well as the myths that created Thor to begin with. The focus on Tyr was a major boon as well.

Tyr is the God of War, and yet he rarely seems to come up these days. C.L. Werner provides some insight to his adventures, as well as his past. It’s a wonderful blend, as he takes on yet another epic adventure – with great risks.

I actually kind of love that Thor, Odin, and Loki took a back seat for this story. Yes, they were present, but they were far from being the center of attention. All of that went to Try and his allies (regardless of how trustworthy they may or may not be).

It made for a thrilling tale, one that came with plenty of risks and potential consequences. Arguably, it had a stronger sense of that, since it wasn’t making use of one of the series main protagonists.

I do not know if we’ll be seeing more of Tyr in book format, but I sincerely hope so. Even if not, it’s comforting to know that there are plenty more Asgard books out there to dive into, with more on the way.
