I finished reading Loki’s Wolves during the Winter Break (no, not March Break, the other Winter Break). It was a quick start but I found myself distracted as I was reading it. The characters are likeable enough but just like Thor (the movie) I found that I wasn’t an invested in the story of the descendent of Thor and his friends on their journey to save the world. Unlike Percy Jackson, I wasn’t rooting for a character that is good at wrestling but has difficulty making friends. But the book isn’t for me. It’s for the students and I think they will like this story as they enjoy stories of children who have to fight against the Gods, I mean the odds, in their trek across the country without parents and no adult help. This will be a book that will be hard to keep on the shelves and students will be asking for the sequel, Odin’s Ravens, the day it’s released in May 2014.
