Atomic: An I Bring the Fire Short Story Kindle Edition
This short story takes place before I Bring the Fire. Sigyn's name means Victory woman, but she's often portrayed as weak for her selfless support of her husband. I never held much by that interpretation.

In this story C. Gockel gives us the back story to Loki from his ex wife's point of view. We can see that Sigyn is a good wife and tries to not only stand by her man but also protect him from others' machinations. She sees the good in Loki - even if he can't.
I love that the author gave Sigyn her own story and showed us how strong she is despite what others think. She loves her family, and she will do anything to save her sons with Loki's help.
We are given a fresh look into Asgard and the major figures of Norse mythology. Who we were led to believe were good are not necessarily so... the same goes with those who were originally depicted as bad. We don't have the strict categories of the characters as they are indeed a blend of both good and evil - and somewhere in the middle. This is where I find the story so much more entertaining! (And... there is a glimpse of our historical events as viewed by Asgardians!)
I love this story! I bought it and the complete series! The more I read, the more I love the saga of Loki.
If you haven't read any of her "I Bring The Fire" series, this is a pretty good place to start, as it tells the story of Sigyn, former wife of Loki, Norse god of chaos and mischief, told from Sigyn's viewpoint of a time before all hell breaks loose with Loki going rogue in the "I Bring The Fire" series.
Give yourself the gift of great writing and buy the whole kit and kaboodle of C. Gockels wildly entertaining and immersive series. And be sure not to miss her post-IBTF stories, Soul Marked, and Magic after midnight. From the sandy beaches of summer to the snow-bound cabins of winter, all are great escapism reading!
I understand why it was written the way it was, given it is only meant to be a short story, it felt more that it was just about simply viewing events from a different character's perspective rather than really getting to see another character developed the way I was hoping.
Still a good read!

I was not ready for the complete theme change after the prologue, but when it happened, so early in the story, I kept reading this short story which has only four chapters. My love of all things Nordic captured me at once. The relationship between Loki and Sigyn was told very well. Loki, like a lot of other Asgardian Gods, takes many lovers. As Sigyn is standing in the middle of the atomic holocaust of Hiroshima, she is almost at her limit of handling the psychic cries for help.
Although this is only a short story, I found myself drawn into the story of Sigyn and her relationship with Loki and her memories of a time long ago. However, she cannot ignore the whirlwind of the destruction of the first atomic bomb blast. If this is any indication of the series of books she has published about Sigyn, you can be sure I will look for them! I'll put "I Bring the Fire Part I: Wolves" very high on my 'must buy' list!
Sigyn (the lead character who is a female mage) visits Hiroshima just after the first Atomic Bomb decimated the city. Not having to worry about radiation was nicely done. It was a good start but did not keep my interest.
As the journey continued, the mage heirarchy denied that humans, Americans especially, were capable of technology that the mage had not developed.
Not the right book to be the first to consider Norse mythology.
Interesting story. I enjoyed reading it
