Nature or Gods Interfering
Welcome to Tuesday Blog Share. Today, we’re talking about a tale that seems improbable. Teens have a lot of obstacles to overcome in their lives, but none expect Norse Gods to be the cause of those problems.
Gods at play; humans at risk. Jessie isn’t very happy with her life in Homer, Alaska. She is really tired of fish at every meal and how they’re always having to take tourists out in the early hours of the morning on fishing expeditions… until she meets a totally hot guy.
March 27, 1964, a 9.2 earthquake devastated Alaska and brought a tsunami that did further damage. Odin accepted his responsibility for this disaster and made a promise to Thor that he would never do such a thing again.
Fifty-three years later, Thor learns his father has returned to Homer, Alaska and is yet again in a destructive mood. What makes matters worse are two teens, Jessie and Jason Sørenson, are related to the Hnickar that continually entices Odin into being destructive.
Can Thor, Jessie, and Jason stop Odin and his Hnickar friend? Will another disastrous earthquake and tsunami finish the destruction begun more than half a century later?
He stood upon the sandy beach, the last rumblings of a devastating earthquake moving far off into the interior. Odin, King of the Norse Gods, shook his head in shame. He was responsible for this travesty and had no way to make reparations.
“Sir.” A man approached him cautiously, followed by a boy of about eighteen years of age. “Are you all right? I saw you tossed from the sea. Were you on a boat that was capsized by the earthquake?”
Both humans wore shocked expressions. The earthquake had been massive, registering at 9.2 on the Richter scale. Many homes had been damaged but Odin didn’t sense any wailing for the dead. Although, from what else he was sensing, that would soon happen and he couldn’t do anything about it—because he was partially the source of this disaster.
