Gullveig : Friend Of Wicked Women © 2016
Gullveig is not simply angry, she is FURIOUS ! First Odin, and his fellow Asgardians killed her three times, and burned her body three times, in the All - Father's great hall trying to extinguish the life from her. But her seidr was too strong for these ' lesser Gods ' to overcome, and she lived to fight against these Asgardians in the Aesir - Vanir War. Despite winning the war, Gullveig felt that her Vanir brothers and sisters lost the peace when they agreed to an agreement with their former enemy making them allies. Her anger multiplied many times over when she learned that Freyja, the Goddess of Love, had taught the All- Father the sacred seidr of their people !
Now the Queen of Seidr is seeking to avenge her dishonor by hurting the Lord of Asgard. Gullveig is no fool however. She knows she cannot seek revenge directly upon the Norse God.... but she can cause him pain through the children he once created from two feeble trees he and his brothers found upon a shore many millennium ago. So off to Midgard Gullveig journeys to spread her evil, and avenge her honor. But what will Gullveig do to cause the Midgardians harm..... and how will she earn her nickname, " The Friend of Wicked Women " !
Beginning Monday, October 3rd, Gullveig : Friend Of Wicked Women, in 10 chapters, you can discover how Gullveig earned her nickname, and why Odin still regrets casting the first spear at The Queen Of Seidr !
