Overview Ormeegget

Don't miss The Serpent´s Egg, the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed The Troll Skull.

Edvard Frost (15) is bored of working as a dogsbody for The Collector. One day, a soaking wet sea captain arrives with a hand-drawn map, and The Collector rallies his best crew for a new expedition. But the hunt for the Midgard Serpent's egg is dangerous, and Edvard ends up in much deeper trouble than he thought possible.

Alexander Løken's critically-acclaimed debut book, The Troll Skull, was nominated for both ARK's children's book prize and Bokslukerprisen. This is the follow-up, which with well-timed humour and a fast pace takes Edvard and the reader far out to sea and even deeper into Nordic mythology.

Now we can but wait for the trilogy's exciting conclusion!

‘This is so refreshing a fantasy series that it can only leave people wanting more, and not only young readers, but also young-at-heart adult readers who can’t get enough of dark depths and impenetrable secrets. This is simply amazing.’
HAMAR ARBEIDERBLAD

‘The story itself is also exciting and unpredictable, with a logical coherence that the reader will be quick to grasp. … captivating and well-written fantasy book for young people.’

Reviews Ormeegget

Vinneroppskrift

"«Ormeegget» er en aldelesherlig jakt etter det ukjente,ned i det skjulte og forbudte, ogalltid på søken etter det mestskremmende som tenkes kan.Jo visst er det ei barnebok – tiår er foreslått som startfase. Mener ikke dette like herlig fantasyogså for voksne? For AlexanderLøken har virkelig knekket koden,og kan gjerne fortsette meddenne serien i mange runder til.For dette er en så frisk og opplagtfantasyserie at den bare skaperlyst etter mer, ikke bare for ungelesere, men også inkludert deevigunge voksne som ikke fårnok av mørke dyp og ugjennomtrengeligehemmeligheter. Detteer bare helt topp."

Geir Vestad, Hamar Arbeiderblad

Fengende ormejakt

"Løken har gitt Edvard mer styrkeog selvstendighet enn mange andre forfattere villevalgt å gi sin 15 år gamle hovedkarakter. [...] karakterenebefinner seg i gråsonen uten å være verkenbare snille eller bare slemme. Historien i seg selver også spennende og uforutsigbar, med en logisksammenheng som leseren kjøper lett. [...] fengende og velskrevetfantasybok for ungdom."

Author Alexander Løken

Alexander Løken (b. 1982), made his literary debut in 2014 with The Troll Skull (Trollskallen), the first book in the trilogy about the character Edvard Frost. The two following books were The Serpent´s egg (Ormeegget) in 2015) and The Wolf Hammer (Ulvehammeren) in 2016.

The books are suitable for children who enjoy stories filled with action and knowledge.

The Dead can see you (De døde ser deg) published in 2017 is Løkens first book in the Young Adult segment. A both scary and interesting story about a society where your secrets are no longer your own.
