Seven kids, Thor's hammer, and a whole lot of Valkyries are the only things standing against the end of the world.

When thirteen-year-olds Matt Thorsen and Fen and Laurie Brekke, modern-day descendants of Thor and Loki, discovered they were fated to take the places of the Norse gods in an epic battle against the apocalypse, they thought they knew how things would play out. Gather the descendants standing in for the gods, defeat a giant serpent, and save the world. No problem, right?

But the descendants' journey grinds to a halt when their friend and descendant Baldwin is poisoned and killed and Matt, Fen, and Laurie must travel to the Underworld in the hopes of saving him. That's only their first stop on their journey to reunite the challengers, find Thor's hammer, and save humanity--a journey filled with enough tooth-and-nail battles and colossal monsters to make Matt and his friends a legend in their own right.

Perfect for fans of ancient myths and filled with young heroes, monstrous beasts, and godly enemies, this fast-paced adventure is impossible to put down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting Follow-Up To 'Loki's Wolves' The best way to describe this book is by quoting Ron Burgundy: "That escalated quickly." It felt like one major event after another, with hardly a break in between. In a way, it was good, because the previous book felt way too slow, but this one seemed to be almost too fast-paced. Still, it was nice to see the kids really starting to come together as a team, and to see who will play which roles in Ragnarök.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Even better than the first! I liked the first book (my kid loved it), but I think the second one is better. Better plot, less predictable, good character development, and interesting Norse mythology. This series is worth reading for fans of mythology YA fiction.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good! A good follow up to the first book. It is interesting and also teaches you about Norse mythology, just as Percy Jackson did for Greek heroes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This is a great book in a fun and imaginative trilogy. I really enjoyed Loki's Wolves and this one was at least as good. You really can't go wrong with two great writers writing them together!
