What Am I Waiting On?

Loki's Wolves

Loki’s Wolves by K.L. Armstrong & M.A. Marr (GR)

Release Date: May 7th by Atom

In Viking times, Norse myths predicted the end of the world, an event called Ragnarok that only the gods can stop. When this apocalypse happens, the gods must battle the monsters—wolves the size of the sun, serpents that span the seabeds—all bent on destroying the world.
The gods died a long time ago.

Matt Thorsen knows every Norse myth, saga, and god as if it was family history—because it is family history. Most people in the modern-day town of Blackwell, South Dakota, in fact, are direct descendants of either Thor or Loki, including Matt’s classmates Fen and Laurie Brekke.

However, knowing the legends and completely believing them are two different things. When the rune readers reveal that Ragnarok is coming and kids—led by Matt—will stand in for the gods in the final battle, he can hardly believe it. Matt, Laurie, and Fen’s lives will never be the same as they race to put together an unstoppable team to prevent the end of the world.

Why Am I Waiting?

Well, despite this book being ‘Middle-grade’ it sounds really interesting and touching on North myths with Thor and Loki always interests me with the historical/mythology side of things because there are so many different interpretations and tales and it looks like something adventurous and exciting!

  1. Ohhh, I love Norse mythology! Yeah, I’m interested too, even thought it’s middle grade. 😀

  2. This one sounds really interesting! I don’t normally read Middle Grade fiction, but I think I’ll be making an exception for this one because I love the concept of it. Great pick!

  4. I saw this one another blog and thought it sounded really fun!

  5. I rarely read middle grade, but this one does sound wonderful! I’m not as familiar with Norse mythology as I am with Greek, but I definitely want to give this a shot. Plus it’s written by two authors whose books have worked for me in the past. Great pick! 🙂

      Yes, I don’t know as much about Norse, but I think it’ll be interesting to read nevertheless because I do love mythology. Thanks! 🙂

Thanks for dropping by, I really appreciate every single view. If you're a fellow blogger I'll return follows/comments. Unfortunately this is an award and tag free zone because of time constraints, but I appreciate the thought.
