Summary of the Apples of Iduna

Odin and Loki set off to see what is happening in the world. They grow hungry and find an ox to roast. Hours go by but the ox will not cook. An eagle, who is really an evil giant king, comes to them and tells them that if they share the ox then he will make it cook. They agree, but the eagle eats almost the entire ox. Loki gets angry and starts beating the eagle with a stick. The eagle grabs the stick and drags Loki into the air. The eagle would not let Loki go until Loki agreed to help the eagle take Iduna who had the apples that keep the gods young and healthy. Loki agreed and the eagle let him go. Loki tricked Iduna and let the evil giant king take her and imprison her. Since Iduna was gone and no one else could handle her apples, the gods began to grow old and weak. Loki tells the gods the truth, and was forced to go save her. Loki transformed himself into a falcon and went to rescue Iduna. Loki turned Iduna into a bird and they flew together towards Asguard, but the evil king chased them in his eagle form. The gods saw Loki and Iduna approaching and started a fire. They let Loki and Iduna through; but when the eagle flew close, they made the flame go higher and he died. The gods became young and healthy again.
