Summary: The day before his coming-of-age ceremony, Eirik has a fight with his best friend—who had pointed out that, adopted by a pair of traveling warriors as Eirik was, how can he know who his ancestors are to celebrate them? Embarrassed and angry, he’s not in the mood for the story his fathers insist on telling him.

Despite himself, however, Eirik becomes engrossed in the tale of the son of the god of Love who has never felt pain, and the son of the god of Envy who always does, how they struggle with each other and their community, and how, ultimately, they trick the underworld out of a very special prize.

Reviews for How Saeter Robbed the Underworld 

“I enjoyed this book so, so much. I love stories within stories and found family set-ups, and How Saeter Robbed the Underworld combined these two in the best of ways, resulting in a beautifully crafted, heartfelt and moving story. […] Meredith Katz crafts wonderful, heartfelt novellas, bringing to life characters you can’t help but feel connected to even in the short space of time you get to know them. I can’t wait to read more of her works in the future.”
– Courtney, Goodreads Reviewer

“How Saeter Robbed the Underworld is a perfect example of a short story that works within the limited word limit beautifully. It’s captivating, charming and unique story that is fully fleshed out with nicely paced plot and plenty of character development. I’m amazed how well the story worked, and while I’d love to read full novel, this was enough. This might just be the best executed short story that I’ve ever read.”
Henna, Goodreads Reviewer
