‘Loki’s Wolves’ is coming in May
I couldn’t resist posting this dynamite ad for a new middle grade novel called Loki’s Wolves by K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr that begins a new series. Click on the graphic to read a PDF excerpt. Loki, in Norse mythology, is, among other things, a shape-shifter.
From the authors’ site: In their middle grade debut, K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr begin the epic Blackwell Pages series with this action-packed adventure, filled with larger-than-life legends, gripping battles, and an engaging cast of characters who bring the myths to life.
From the Publisher: 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.
Praise: So far, I cannot find any pre-publication reviews. Amazon shows the following blurb: Loki’s Wolves has everything – a fast-paced, exciting plot, endearing and honest characters, Norse mythology with a contemporary twist, and plenty of heart. I can’t wait to find out what happens to Matt, Laurie, and Fen! — Ally Condie, Author Of The #1 New York Times Bestseller Matched
A fair number of ARCs or galleys must have gone out, for there are already thirteen reviews of the novel on GoodReads with an average rating of 4.26. There’s also an additional description of the book here.
Kelley Armstrong’s previous books include The Calling, Thirteen and The Rising. Melissa Marr’s work in includes Carnival of Souls, Graveminder and Darkest Mercy.
