Description

Matt Thorsen grew up in Blackwell, South Dakota knowing the stories his family had passed down: every Norse myth, every saga, every god like it was family history. Because the Thorsens are direct descendants of Thor. Like their ancestor, every Thorsen is charged with keeping order, especially in regard to the descendents of the trickster god, Loki. And quite a few of his descendents live in Blackwell, too, including Matt's classmates: Fen and Laurie Brekke. For the most part, their lives aren't too different from those of normal kids, aside from a few minor powers. But everything changes when the rune readers tell of the impending Ragnarok-also known as the apocalypse. According to legend, in the time of Ragnarok, the gods must fight the monsters to stop the end of the world. But the gods are dead, leaving their human descendents to fight on their behalf.And Thor's Champion is Matt.He has a little trouble with the "slay the giant serpent and save the world" idea, but he's not the only one whose world will be turned upside down, because representatives of each of the major gods-kids, like Matt, Fen, and Laurie-have their roles to play in the final fight as well, and it's up to Matt to find them and put together an unstoppable team against the end of the world. The Blackwell Pages series starts off with this action packed adventure that combines Norse myth, fantasy, an engaging web of characters, and real-world settings, such as Deadwood and Mt. Rushmore.

Professional reviews

"The Norse gods may be dead, but their legends still live--or so the descendants of Thor and Loki find out in LOKI'S WOLVES. This audiobook, like the story itself, switches narrators with each chapter. Pat Young and Joe Worranga narrate the male characters Matt and Fen, the descendants of Thor and Loki respectively. Laurie, Fen's cousin, is narrated by Casey Holloway. The well-matched pacing and pitch of the three narrators make the transitions--often a stumbling block with multiple narrators--smooth and natural as these 13-year-olds fight for their lives and the world.
