Loki's Wolves Cover Image
$17.00
ISBN: 9780316204965
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers - May 7th, 2013

In viking times the Norse myths predicted the end of the world that only the gods could stop...the gods died a long time ago.
Matt Thorsen is a direct descendant of the god Thor. It is up to him to gather a team of champions (who also happen to be descendants of the gods), and find Thor's hammer so that the monsters that will destroy the world can be defeated.
This is a story full of legends and mythology and memorable characters. Fans of the Percy Jackson series will enjoy this fast paced book. This is the first book in the series with the second installment Odin's Ravens due to be released May 2014. I look forward to its release.

At Phoenix Books we joke that new booksellers must read Graceling
- it's practically required reading!  Even folks who don't normally
read fantasy, or didn't think this was their kind of book, have come
back raving about how awesome it is!  It's simply a must-read.
