How far would you go to save a loved one?


In two days Dad will be dead.

To save him, Alice must travel to the northern tip of Sweden, a thousand miles through a dangerous hidden world that she had no idea existed. But bureaucratic trolls and bodybuilding minotaurs are the least of her worries . . .

The mysterious monster that injured Dad could be right behind her. One wrong move might be Alice’s last.

Problem is, Alice isn’t good at being careful. When Mom left, a red hot rage moved into Alice’s chest, ready to boil over at any moment. Will she be able to overcome her anger in order to save Dad’s life?

"This is a fast-moving and thrilling book of extraordinary imagination that creates an alternative mythic universe and at the same time has heart, humor, and profound meaning." – Alan Rinzler, former editor of Hunter S. Thompson and Nobel laureate Toni Morrison.

“This is the best debut novel I’ve read in two years […] I cannot recommend this book highly enough; I was delighted with it from start to finish and am eagerly looking forward to Mr. Persson's next release.” – Amazon reviewer.


Hi and thanks for stopping by!

C.J. Persson here (Johan when I’m not being pretentious). Alice’s Anger is my debut novel and has been a long time in the making. If you like a fun adventure with a bit of an emotional bite to it, this is the book for you.

The novel takes place in Sweden (where I’m born and raised) and draws heavily from Norse mythology and local fairy tales. Ever wonder why trolls aren’t taking bridge tolls anymore or where all the giants went? Pick up a copy and find out.
