Seven kids, Thor's hammer, and a whole lot of Valkyries are the only things standing against the end of the world.
When thirteen-year-old Matt Thorsen, a modern day descendant of the Norse god Thor, was chosen to represent Thor in an epic battle to prevent the apocalypse he thought he knew how things would play out. Gather the descendants standing in for gods like Loki and Odin, defeat a giant serpent, and save the world. No problem, right?
But the descendants' journey grinds to a halt when their friend and descendant Baldwin is poisoned and killed. Matt, Fen and Laurie must travel to the Underworld in hopes of saving him. But that's only their first stop on their journey to reunite the challengers, find Thor's hammer, and stop the apocalypse-a journey filled with enough tooth-and-nail battles and larger-than-life monsters to make Matt a legend inn his own right.
Authors K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr return to Blackwell in the epic sequel to Loki's Wolves with more explosive action, adventure and larger-than-life Norse legends.
We literary start this book in Hel. Matt, Laurie and Fen are going to go get Baldwin from Hel, which is probably not the most smartest thing to do, in my opinion.
Matt in this book, was so much better and much more up front about everything. I found that he was always ready to fight monster or whatever to protect his friends. I feel real bad for him, considering that his grandfather is going against everything that him and his friends are trying to do. But I guess he handle it pretty well since it was in fact his grandfather. He accepted who he was and his abilities, during this book. He finally took the fact that he is Thor's champion, and took it in.
Fen, went through so much during this book. Owen keeps pushing at him, even though he does say he is doing the right thing and that he is on there side, I don't like him. Fen was pushed away, and was token down and was beaten. Skull making Fen fight him was just cruel. He said many times that he didn't want to fight but he kept getting at him.
Laurie was very strong and was more involved with the combat part of their whole 'let's save the world' thing. She got a really cool bow that has magical arrows that are invisible. I really liked that. She also help out and wasn't protect as much. I found, though, she kind of contribute to Fen's leaving them, since she did, you know trust Owen.
So, I am very excited to continue on with this series and getting more into Norse mythology. I am a big fan of Roman, Greek and kind of Egyptian mythology because of Rick Riordan, so this is just a continuation of my knowledge of mythology.
