This series is excellent, I would recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the Percy Jackson books. It features Norse myth in a modern setting, with friendships and an incredible storyline. 10/10 would recommend.

This book was very hard to read. Not that it was wordy, but in the way that the plot was confusing, but predictable. The author threw in all of the main and important facts right at the start, so it was overwhelmingly confusing. Not only that, but the plot was predictable. I won’t spoil any of it, but I could tell how it was going to turn out not very far into the book. I agree that this book should not be compared to Percy Jackson. They both involve old mythology and modern concepts, but in none of the same ways. The plot would only be interesting for a twelve year old kid, in my opinion.

If you like Percy Jackson, you will like this. Personally, Fen is my favorite character but they all are so cute. Great introduction to Norse Mythology and way better than overused Greek Mythology retellings.

Why is everyone comparing this book to Percy Jackson? Sure it has Norse mythology incorporated into it, (which I really liked) but this is not the same author! I think it was a great book and should not be compared to Percy Jackson.

This was a really good books series. I read it in a day. I think that it defiantly had an interesting take on the Norse mythology. I would say that it definitely had a more fast paced storyline than Magnus Chase, but I would say give both series a chance.

Loki’s Wolves is the first book in the trilogy, The Blackwell Pages, written by K.L Armstrong and M.A Marr, followed by Odin’s Ravens, and the conclusion, Thor’s Serpents. The book revolves around Norse mythology, quite similar to the myth-filled adventures of Percy Jackson, but the characters in this book are represented differently. For example, instead of being descended by the Norse gods and goddesses, they live in a world where the gods and goddesses have all died, and they are the exact reincarnations of those gods. The main characters, 13 year old Matt Thorsen and Fen Brekke have known about the reality of these myths their entire life, while Laurie Brekke (Fen’s cousin) soon discovers the world of Norse myths. However, their knowledge of these Norse myths have never majorly jeopardized their lives, until now, with the beginning of the end of the world, Ragnarok. The three are thrown on a journey where they must find the rest of the Norse reincarnations to fight against the evil forces. Overall, in this book the characters must face self-discovery, self-doubt, betrayal and whatever the world throws at them. I recommend this book to readers 12 years old and older, and give it around 3.5 stars out of five stars.

"Do you know how completely useless that is? I'm thirteen. I can't just hop in my car and let my magical god-descendant-finding GPS guide me." -Chapter 7, Matt.

I chuckle every time I read that.
