Hammer of Thor is unexpected. I thought it would be about gods and goddesses of Norse mythology, but I was pleasantly surprised. Instead of being all about Valhalla, it's about a man named Frank Kader. Frank is an ordinary guy—except for the fact he wields magic. An adept, he heads from Minnesota to California to join the West Coast Guild. The year is 1939.
Frank's skills save him from a long series of incidents that would have killed a lesser man. He travels the world across the U.S., to war torn Europe, and all the way to China. Along the way he makes an interesting group of friends as well as some powerful enemies. He must pit his skills against theirs in order to save himself and his friends from disaster.
Hammer of Thor is an incredibly complex novel that intertwines true events with a great deal of imagination. Spanning eleven years, readers watch Frank as he grows more powerful and finally faces the ultimate foe—a god of Valhalla!
I greatly enjoyed Hammer of Thor and recommend it to anyone who likes novels that pair recent history with a paranormal twist. Five Golden Acorns
