This is perhaps the most exquisitely enchanting book of poetry that I've encountered. Filled with lush, lyrical poems about the wild beauty of the natural world and overflowing with truly stunning artwork, I can't think of a lovelier gift for the aesthete in your life. I also highly recommend The Lost Words by the same author. – Jessica

Bro! This is a really good translation, with a beat and a sense of humor. Not every translator can pull off deliberate anachronism, but here the jock-talk and modern slang feel natural for a boastful tale of monster-slaying and kingship. Listen as an audiobook on Libro.fm or read it aloud with some mead after a feast. – Ruth
