The God of War must explore a terrifying realm of eternal fire to reclaim his glory, in this epic fantasy novel of one of Odin’s greatest heroes

Tyr, God of War and elder brother of Thor, embarks on a quest to seal his place at Odin’s side. Spurred on by loyal young Bjorn Wolfbane and the bewitching Lorelai, the trio set out to steal a sliver of Twilight, sword of the fire giant Surtur, who will one day bring about Ragnarok and destroy Asgard. But the fiery realm of Muspelheim is fraught with volcanic trolls, lava kraken, and Surtur’s brood of murderous warriors. Tyr must overcome both his own feelings and the motives of his allies, or risk triggering the apocalypse and cursing his name forever.

It isn’t easy being extraordinary. Superhuman powers can be both a gift and a curse in a world where those talents can be used for good or evil. A lucky few are taught how to control their abilities at the Charles Xavier Institute, while others must master their uniquely dangerous powers alone. Will they become true heroes and heroines when called upon to defend the world, or turn their fearsome abilities to conquering the world? Meanwhile, in a realm beyond Earth, mighty heroes do battle with monsters of myth and undertake quests to restore peace and honor to the legendary halls of Asgard and the Ten Realms.

Interviews and Articles

“I wanted to focus on a character from the Asgardian part of the Marvel Universe who I always felt had a great deal of story potential but never really had too much focus placed on him.”
Track of Words, Interview with C L Werner, author of The Sword of Surtur


“[The Sword of Surtur] explores jealousy and brotherhood, magic and destiny, and does so while telling a story accessible to all ages, I would definitely recommend the book.”
Nerdy Nightly

“This is a story that doesn’t just take inspiration from the myths and legends that inspired the Marvel books, but celebrates it. If you’ve never picked up a comic before, if you’re not sure you’d like heroes fighting costumed villains with over the top plots, this is the kind of book that can show you that there’s more to comics than that, and that those universes can easily make the jump to prose without losing any of their magic.”

“Frankly this is the best story featuring Tyr that I have ever read, and I have read quite a few of the comics in which he features… This is a an extremely good book, not because it’s an epic tale of a sons quest to prove himself to his father, but because it actually makes you sympathise and actually identify with a Norse god.”
Big Geordie Geek

The Sword of Surtur is the perfect read for any fan of Marvel, who also appreciates the origin of the world Thor sprung from. This is a novel that merges lore and legend with the fantastical elements of Marvel, and it does so seamlessly.”
Quirky Cat’s Fat Stacks

The Sword of Surtur is every bit the fun Asgardian escapade fans could hope for… It was funny and chaotic, not to mention full of action. In short, it’s a novel that many a Marvel fan would and could enjoy. Any fan missing the gods from Asgard on the big screen should consider checking this tale out.”
Word of the Nerd
