Publisher's Summary

Thor has broken the sword Tyrfing so that it cannot strike at the roots of Yggdrasil, the tree that binds together earth, heaven, and hell. But now the mighty sword is needed again to save the elves in their war against the trolls, and only Skafloc, a human child kidnapped and raised by the elves, can hope to persuade Bölverk the ice-giant to make Tyrfing whole again. But Skafloc must also confront his shadow self, Valgard the changeling, who has taken his place in the world of men.

Poor performance

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Use a British English speaker rather then an American one.

Would you be willing to try another book from Poul Anderson? Why or why not?

I like Poul Anderson and have read very many of his books, so I was looking forward to this.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

This is supposed to be an English faery tale. I could overlook the American accent of the narrator - just - but the moment he tried to imitate an English accent was like being hit with a bucket of icewater. Very, very poor.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Don't know - I had to give up after just one chapter.
