The blog for books and movies

This is the first of three young adult novels from New York Times best-selling author Mackenzi Lee that explores the untapped potential and duality of heroism of popular characters in the Marvel Universe.

Before the days of going toe-to-toe with the Avengers, a younger Loki is desperate to prove himself heroic and capable, while it seems everyone around him suspects him of inevitable villainy and depravity . . . except for Amora. Asgard’s resident sorceress-in-training feels like a kindred spirit-someone who values magic and knowledge, who might even see the best in him.

But when Loki and Amora cause the destruction of one of Asgard’s most prized possessions, Amora is banished to Earth, where her powers will slowly and excruciatingly fade to nothing. Without the only person who ever looked at his magic as a gift instead of a threat, Loki slips further into anguish and the shadow of his universally adored brother, Thor.

When Asgardian magic is detected in relation to a string of mysterious murders on Earth, Odin sends Loki to investigate. As he descends upon nineteenth-century London, Loki embarks on a journey that leads him to more than just a murder suspect, putting him on a path to discover the source of his power-and who he’s meant to be.

  1. I’m currently reading ‘Loki: God of Mischief‘ by Mackenzi Lee and WOW is it good. It’s the first book of a three-book series that explores the untapped potential and duality of heroism of popular characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This book follows the life of Loki the norse God of Mischief who is trying to prove himself worthy of king, even though he his constantly being compared to his much more masculine and much more blond brother, Thor the norse God of Thunder. The pages almost turned themselves while reading this addictive novel. I would love if there were more Marvel Cinematic Universe books as well as comic books in the library for all the Marvel fans out there.
    I give this book a solid 10/10 for how much I relate to Loki and for foreshadowing the future marvel movies. Theres also some LGBTQI+ tension between Loki and a thief he befriended just to add to the list of why this is such a good book!
