Red Maple Review: Loki's Wolves

book cover of Loki's Wolves: The Blackwell Pages

Interest in Viking folklore and legend is as popular as ever.  Consider the movie Thor, and the television series The Vikings.

In Loki's Wolves, Norse gods and mythology are woven into the fabric of a present day story, in the fictional town of Blackwell, South Dakota.

Main character Matt Thorsen, and classmates Fen and Laurie Brekke, discover they are descendents of Norse gods.  Matt is descended from Thor, god of thunder, and Fen and Laurie trace their roots back to Loki, a wolf-like shape shifter.

The importance of their lineage becomes apparent as they find themselves unwittingly pulled into one of the most important events in Norse mythology, a Viking apocalypse referred to as Ragnarok.

Together, Matt, Fen and Laurie learn to weather natural disasters, fight trolls and other creatures, and battle like gods to stop the end of the world.

Authors K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr have written a smart, fast-paced adventure that guarantees the reader will never look at Vikings the same way again.  A highly recommended book.
