Great books that involve norse mythology?

Are their any recent books at there that are heavily influenced by norse mythology? But then again its ok if there not recent. It would be nice though if there were young adult books focused on norse mythology.

    Mythology Books For Young Adults

    Not young adult, but not too intense on Adult themes and an awesome book, American Gods by Neil Gaiman has a lot of Norse mythology in it (as well as some Egyptian, African, Scandanavian, and just about every other myth system you could imagine, but Norse is one of the more important ones in the book).

    Eight Days of Luke by Diana Wynne Jones isn't super recent (1970s I think?) but it's about Norse mythology.

    Runemarks by Joann Harris is a newer book based on norse mythology. I believe it is technically a "kids" book, but much in the vein of HP and Percy Jackson, it could be read by older readers. And it has sequels coming out.

    Nancy Farmer has a series starting with "The Sea of Trolls" that is based on/influenced by Norse myths (the first book is "influenced by", the second is more "based on")
