Publisher's Summary

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.

Good for Riordan fans; improves as story continues

Would you consider the audio edition of Loki's Wolves to be better than the print version?

We didn't read the print version. It is well-suited to an audio version.

What other book might you compare Loki's Wolves to and why?

Very much along the lines of the Rick Riordan books, though it suffers a bit by comparison. At the beginning, i was a bit disappointed, thinking it didn't live up either in the story or the narration to the Riordan audios. By the end, though, I very much appreciated it, My son (age 12) was drawn in from the beginning. It helped to tide him over to the next Riordan book!

Any additional comments?

Very educational in the way that the Riordan books are. We both learned a lot about Norse mythology in a very fun way.

Great story, poor naration

My son and I love these books, but it was a little difficult for me to listen to. There are 3 narrators and they don't read with much enthusiasm or emphasis. The female voice almost sounds like a robot. It could have been done so much better!

Not a bad series

A fun series that brings Norse mythology into the modern world, but without some of the more tasteless aspects of similar works by the likes of Rick Riordan. The first book has one unfortunate moment in which a main character contrasts Valkyries he meets with the somewhat sexualized depiction he’s seen previously, but it’s a short bit and easily skipped over.
