An epic tale across the realms. A deadly power that spans millennia. A story of struggle and betrayal, this adventure is told through the patchwork past of Marvel's most misunderstood mischief-maker of all time: Loki: Trickster. God of Asgard. Brother. This is the first of three young adult novels from New York Times best-selling author Mackenzi Lee that explores the untapped potential of popular characters in the Marvel Universe. The novels focus on exploring the duality of heroism in specific character stories from the Marvel Universe.
One does not have to be a Marvel film franchise fan to enjoy this action-packed, emotionally resonant origin story of trickster deity and sorcerer Loki. Through a deep dive into the sibling rivalry between Thor and Loki, Lee (The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue) traces Loki's sometimes-questionable choices to his attempt to win over their father Odin and be seen as a true contender for the Asgardian throne. Upon peering into the Godseye Mirror during the Royal Feast of Gullveig, Odin sees what he believes to be a treasonous act by one of his sons. The vision sets off a series of events that leads to the mirror's destruction and the banishment of Loki's only friend sorcerer's apprentice Amora, who has been teaching Loki to use his magic, is sent to Midgard (Earth), where magic does not exist. After a series of magically induced murders plagues London, Loki goes to help and prove that he can be trusted. Lee's Loki is a complicated young man trying to define who he is as distinct from his family, something that many young people can relate to, and while Lee does not skimp on the fun a fabulous party, flirty and witty dialogue she also clarifies that it is not individual acts that determine whether someone is good or bad. Ages 12 up.)
The only thing I wish it included was what happens to Amora after she jumps off the train
Really captured Loki’s personality and explained his past really well.
I don’t really read much but this one was too good
I rarely read books because I’m very picky about books. And I loved this one!!! I highly recommend. If you want mystery thriller and so much more this one has it! I’m telling you you will love it!
