Odinsbarn: Ravneringene 1 | Siri Pettersen
13 posts | 18 read | 1 reading | 7 to read
Forestil dig at mangle noget alle andre har. Noget som beviser, at du hrer til i denne verden, noget s vigtigt, at uden det, er du ingenting: En pest, en myte - et menneske. Som 15-rig opdager Hirka, at hun er et odinsbarn en halels rddenskab fra en anden verden. Foragtet. Frygtet. Og jaget. Hun aner ikke lngere hvem hun er, og er tilmed p flugt for sit liv. Men dette er kun begyndelsen, og Hirka er ikke den eneste rddenskab, der er kommet fra en anden verden, men mske den eneste, der ikke er kommet for at drbe. Odinsbarn er en storslet, spndende fantasyfortlling med rdder i nordisk mytologi.En historie om at skille sig ud fra mngden, om fremmedhad, fordomme, magtbalancer og krlighed. Det er den frste af tre bger om pigen Hirka i trilogien Ravneringene.

I was a bit concerned when I read that it's an YA book, BUT after I read it I can say it does not read like your standard YA. It's from Norway, and I hope it will be translated to English soon, because it had a bit of this classical fantasy feeling meets a Norse mythology inspired world. The author really took her time to flesh out the characters and their journey (some might say it drags a little, but I enjoyed the slower pace).

DuckOfDoom @julesG you wanted to know if I liked it 😁 8mo
julesG Thanks!!!! It's still on my list. I think we have a similar taste in books, so knowing you liked it is the tipping point. 😉 8mo
julesG PS: have you seen the original Norwegian cover? The German edition is very tame. 8mo
DuckOfDoom @julesG it's just hidden - when you open the book, the rest of the illustration is right there. But I had the same thought when I saw the original cover on Goodreads 8mo
julesG Ah, makes sense. 8mo

Found today in my local bookstore - fantasy from Norway.
The title would be something like Child of Odin in English, from the Ravenrings series. Can't wait to start this 😍

JazzFeathers Fantasy from Norway?????? 😍😍😍😍 l'd love to be able to read it. 9mo
DuckOfDoom @JazzFeathers I hope it will be released in english, too. It was already translated into a ~10 other languages, so I think the chances are good 😀 9mo
julesG I have it on my rebuy-watchlist, let me know what you think of it. 9mo

Leniverse Er dette voksenbøker, eller passer de for sånn det yngre sjikt av YA-lesere? 12mo
hilded De er rettet mot det eldre sjiktet av ungdom, så antagelig litt for mye for de yngste. Men flott for voksne og, jeg koste meg skikkelig med serien som 35-åring ? @Leniverse 12mo
Leniverse Ok. Jeg er alltid på jakt etter fengende norsk litteratur til ungene, så det ikke bare går på engelsk hele tiden. Får legge meg denne serien på minnet og se det an om et par år. ☺️ 12mo
hilded Ser den, god måte å holde norsken vedlike for de vil jeg tro. Nå vet jeg ikke hvor gamle de er, men 14-15 og oppover er nok en fin alder for disse. Hun har en for det litt yngre sjiktet også som har fått ok kritikker her, den har jeg imidlertid ikke lest selv. @Leniverse 12mo
Leniverse Takker! 12mo

Here is me hoping this excellent book will get translated to English soon so that more people will get the chance to read it!

julesG This looks interesting! 2y
kamoorephoto Omg this cover, what the heck?! 2y
hilded It's great @julesG! Fantasy mixed with some nordic mythology. The world building and the characters are amazing. It's a trilogy that have received lots of praises here in Norway, and are slowly being translated to other European languages as well. I heard rumours that it may be translated to English at some point, fingers crossed! 2y

hilded I know @kamoorephoto, it's so deliciously creepy! 2y
julesG I hope it's either translated into English or German, my Norwegian is too basic to read a book. 2y
julesG Ha, it's not only available in German, I can also get it from the library. (the German cover is more tame, though) 2y
hilded That's great @julesG 👍To bad they changed the cover, but hope you will enjoy it when/if you read it 😊 2y
julesG They cropped the image so that the bloody part is not in the picture, just the rest of the tail(?). So they show more of the left side of the picture. 2y
hilded Good guess, it is a tail indeed! @julesG 2y

The writing here is so good, and I keep thinking I want it to be translated to English so all my bookish friends can read it and love it, too. I am at the beginning still, but the world building and the character development just touch me, and I am eager to know more about how things work here...

#booktober day 27: a creepy cover. Siri Pettersen's Odinsbarn must have one of the creepiest yet extremely pertinent covers ever. The second one is creepy too, but not AS creepy, and I don't own the third one yet.

This book has the most awesome characters. Hirka, Rime, Ilume, basically just all of them. I really liked this book and I hope it'll be translated into English one day, because this is a really good fantasy book!
