Attention, all you Percy Jackson fans — aka the whole world because those books are so good. Well, I’ve got a new series that you’ll love, about a group of kids descended from Norse gods.
Loki’s Wolves is the first book in the Blackwell Pages series by K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr. In the book, you meet Matt, Fen, and Laurie. Matt is a direct descendent of Thor, and he’s always had super strength to go along with his lineage. But he’s still shocked to be chosen as “the Champion” who needs to save the world in the battle of Ragnorak. Is he really up for something that epic?
And perhaps an even more baffling question is whether Matt and Fen can get along well enough to fight together against evil. It doesn’t help that Fen and his cousin Laurie are descendents of Loki, the trickster god who led monsters against Thor in the original myths. But in this case, if Matt and Fen remain at odds, it could mean catastrophe for the whole planet. In other words, failure is not an option.
So Matt, Laurie, and Fen set off to gather up a team of other kids descended from Norse gods, and then — well, then they’ll figure out how to save the world. That is, if they can survive the trolls, hallucinations, and wolf/human shape-shifters along the way…
One word of warning: This book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger. But don’t let that stop you from picking it up! Fans of Percy Jackson, the Kane Chronicles, and mythology in general will be in absolute heaven — guaranteed.
Have you already read Loki’s Wolves? Or are you tired of all the myth-based books out there and ready for something different? Leave me a comment and let me know!
