Since dawn of humankind's awareness, we have recorded history in the form of drawings and writings, developing habits of storytelling to express what we see. Though what man sees and how interprets are not always the same. Loki, Asgardian god of Norse mythology, known as the God of Mischief and Trickery, is victim of historical and literary misconception - one who is pictured as a god who loves to wreak havoc and leave behind strings of misfortune. Unsung Giant is a story to lay all wrong accounts to rest. Unsung Giant is a tale of an unlikely Asgardian hero, torn between doing what his mischievous ways demand, and what is expected of him, being the son of King. Loki, since gianthood, has always been branded as one who does not think for the good of others. The Nine Worlds, including our own, are on the brink of destruction, and only one can bring about salvation. What would you do, if the power was in your hands? "Loki has both the Mjollnir and the teningur lifsins; two very powerful weapons he could keep and use for his own purposes. The thought of wielding such power is very enticing, even for one who has a strong resolve." As the book goes, "Even the All-Father could not help but beam at his younger son's impulsive nature. Well, Loki would not be Loki if he became insipidly predictable." Loki and Thor's filial affiliation are finally put to the test, from birth through to Ragnarok, end of the Nine Worlds, as we discover the true nature of this misunderstood giant.
