Loki's Wolves

By K. L. Armstrong, M. A. Marr (Electronic Book, 2013)
"What Riordan has done for Greek and Egyptian mythology, Armstrong and Marr are doing for Norse myths...A Hel of a good read."
--Kirkus Reviews

"The runes have spoken. We have our champion...Matthew Thorsen."

Matt hears the words, but he can't believe them. He's Thor's representative? Destined to fight trolls, monstrous wolves and giant serpents...or the world ends? He's only thirteen.

While Matt knew he was a modern-day descendent of Thor, he's always lived a normal kid's life. In fact, most people in the small town of Blackwell, South Dakota, are direct descendants of either Thor or Loki, including Matt's classmates Fen and Laurie Brekke. No big deal.

But now Ragnarok is coming, and it's up to the champions to fight in the place of the long-dead gods. Matt, Laurie, and Fen's lives will never be the same as they race to put together an unstoppable team, find Thor's hammer and shield, and prevent the end of the world.

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.

K.L. Armstrong is an author of adult and young adult fiction. This is her first middle grade novel, inspired by her middle grade-aged son.

M.A. Marr has written extensively for young adults. Her husband's Nordic roots have inspired the research behind the Blackwell Trilogy. This is also her first middle grade novel--also written for her middle grade-aged son.
  • Praise for Loki's Wolves:

    "Loki's Wolves brings Norse mythology to the modern world...The background and explanation of the legends are clear and a natural fit to the story and dialogue, bringing life to lesser-known Norse mythology...Recommended for those who enjoyed Rick Riordan's 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians' series."
    (School Library Journals).

  • "Norse mythology brought to life with engaging contemporary characters and future volumes that promise explosive action; ideal for Percy Jackson fans who want to branch out."
    ( Kirkus Reviews ).

  • "This smart, fast-paced, action-packed novel...offers readers a solid adventure story that still manages not to skimp on character...An excellent what-to-read-next for Percy Jackson fans, this novel will also please young readers of Marvel's Thor and myth-lovers already familiar with Norse lore..."
    (Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books).


  • "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 ).

  • "These authors are no strangers to weaving a compelling tale. Once the story moves past the background, the plot picks up quickly and the adventure doesn't disappoint." (Library Media Connection).

  • Praise for Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely series:

    * "Impossible to put down." 
    (School Library Journal (starred review for Wicked Lovely, and Darkest Mercy, and Fragile Eternity)).

  • * "A fully imagined faery world which even non-fantasy (or faerie) lovers will want to delve into." (Publisher's Weekly (starred review for Wicked Lovely, and Darkest Mercy, and Fragile Eternity)).

  • Praise for Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Powers series: 

    "Suspenseful, well-written and engaging."
    (VOYA).

  • *** "Armstrong's vermiculate plot will exhilarate even readers new to the series...Teens grappling with their own transformations and alienating individuality will certainly follow these characters to the book's final pages and into the next volume."  (Kirkus (starred review for The SummoningThe Awakening and The Reckoning)).
