In Seidrmaidens (Book One of the Wyrdfolk), author Katja Aronsen introduces readers to the world of the wyrdfolk and their seidrmagick abilities. Four Seattle seidrmaiden teenagers join together to solve the mystery of the Fenrir Stones, struggle against a rival seidr group, and unknowingly assist an evil Norse legend. Fenrir, the son of Loki and bringer of Ragnarák, may break his bonds and run free to destroy the worlds of both the gods and humans. The seidrmaidens and their fylgjur-cats combine to try to solve the mystery and keep Fenrir bound.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’m drawn to telling an old story, like those of the Norse myths. I wanted to tie in these myths and how they relate to modern life.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The characters for this book just popped into my head, and they developed from there. I enjoyed writing about them and having them learn about the powers of light and dark, right along with the reader.
Blood dripped from my quivering lip as I struggled against my bond. Gleipnir held me fast to the cave’s floor, hidden deep under the river. A half-strangled growl issued from my throat through jaws propped open by the damnable sword. I shuddered with rage and anticipation. Barring any intervention from the AEsir or one of the other Norse gods or goddesses, I would soon be free Gleipnir’s binding grip and I could set out to ravage this puny Earth and consume the pompous Odin and traitorous Tyr, whose remaining hand I would bite off. Next, I would those miserable seidrmaidens, who have unknowingly assisted in my release. All will yield to me–Fenrir–as I claim all in my path and issue forth the end of the world.
