Loki’s Wolves, by K.L. Armstrong and Melissa Marr

Lokis WolvesBlackwell Pages #1
Summary: 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.  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.

  1. This book felt kind of like a knockoff from other books in its genre, but as a stand alone book, this book is approaching great literature. The setting, characters, and plot were all very well thought out and described.

  2. I’ve always been a fan of books linking to ancient mythology, and this book did not disappoint. The characters were very well explained and I really felt for them when something bad happened. The beginning was kind of slow, but the book got better and better as it went on. I’m not sure whether it could win the Newbery because it did not resolve all the problems in the book, making me think it might be the beginning of a series, but I really liked it!
