Loki's Wolves

By K. L. Armstrong, M. A. Marr (Audiobook, 2013)
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.

    ( Ally Condie, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller MATCHED ).

  • 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)).
