The Sword of Surtur Review

The Sword of Surtur: A Marvel Legends of Asgard Novel

By C.L. Werner

I received a free copy of The Sword of Surtur from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

Envy drives the God of War into a realm of fire to reclaim his glory, in this epic fantasy novel of Odin’s greatest heroes, in Marvel’s Legends of Asgard

Tyr, God of War, elder brother of Thor, embarks on a quest to regain his honor and place at Odin’s side. Spurred on by loyal young Bjorn Wolfbane and the bewitching Lorelai, the trio set out to steal a sliver of Twilight, sword of the fire giant Surtur, who will one day bring about Ragnarok and destroy Asgard. But the fiery realm of Muspelheim is fraught with volcanic trolls, lava kraken, and Surtur’s brood of murderous warriors. Tyr must overcome his own feelings of inadequacy and the motives of his allies or risk triggering the apocalypse and cursing his name forever.

Summary from Goodreads.

The Sword of Surtur was not what I expected going into this. For some reason I thought that it was going to be set in the MCU as an extended series. Turns out that I was wrong.

I personally just could not get into this. Going into it with the wrong expectations probably did not help, but I was constantly confused as to what was going on, and more importantly who was who.

We follow Tyr, Bjorn and Lorelai in this adventure, and I was constantly getting Tyr and Bjorn confused. Not only that, the actual storyline was very confusing for me. While I was able to grasp the general idea of what was supposed to be occurring, the actual reason as to why the characters acted the ways that they did is beyond me.

I personally am not interested in following any of the other books that are related to this one.
