A to Z Challenge – J is for Jotunn

As part of the A to Z Challenge for the month of April. I’m posting about my Valkyrie world. I will try to present elements of the world without being too spoilerific 😉

So today is the letter J which stands for Jotunn.

Within the world of the Valkyrie series I’ve used a number of different creatures. Bear in mind that I have taken a tiny bit of artistic licence in using the Norse mythological creatures in Bryn’s world.

The land of Jotunnheim is one of the Nine Realms within Norse mythology’s Cosmic World. Jotunnheim is the home of the Jotunns, or frost giants. Within Bryn’s story, the frost giants are large creatures who look human, except for their pale, bluish skins, ice-like eyes, and the ability to turn into ice and into piles of stones. Jotunn can change their size at will, and can generate spears of ice from their fingertips. Add to those skills the ability to draw a glamor around them and mimic other people, and we have a very dangerous creature, poised to run riot over the Midgard world.

Bryn’s skills are pitted against the frost giants on more than one occasion. Not to mention the fact that she has to battle the worst Jotunn there is, the Trickster Loki.

So come back Monday for K

For the rest of the alphabet see below:

A is for Armor |   B is for Blood  |  C is for Creatures  |  D is for Dwarfs  | E is for Einherjar  |  F is for Fenrir  | G is for Gungnir | H is for Huldra  |  I for Impossible
