How to be a Hero
by Cat Weldon

Whetstone is a viking thief and Lotta is proving unsuccessful as a valkyrie, but when they stumble upon each other, their lives are changed forever.

Whetstone has lost his precious talking cup so will do anything to make amends, and Lotta is eager to gain approval from Valhalla so they embark on a journey to achieve a rightful heroic status.

However, Loki, the trickster god wants that magical cup and plans to unleash chaos across the nine worlds.

Can Whetstone prove a hero?

Funny, silly, but also a great, fast-paced adventure introducing readers to the fascinating and sometimes bizarre world of the vikings and their Norse Gods. This is the first in a trilogy.
