Loki’s Wolves by K. L. Armstrong and M. A. Marr

In Viking times, Norse myths predicted the end of the world, an event called Ragnarok, that only the gods can stop. When this apocalypse happens, the gods must battle the monsters–wolves the size of the sun, serpents that span the seabeds, all bent on destroying the world.

The gods died a long time ago.

Matt Thorsen knows every Norse myth, saga, and god as if it was family history–because it is family history. Most people in the modern-day town of Blackwell, South Dakota, in fact, are direct descendants of either Thor or Loki, including Matt’s classmates Fen and Laurie Brekke.

However, knowing the legends and completely believing them are two different things. When the rune readers reveal that Ragnarok is coming and kids–led by Matt–will stand in for the gods in the final battle, he can hardly believe it. Matt, Laurie, and Fen’s lives will never be the same as they race to put together an unstoppable team to prevent the end of the world.

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Β 

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolfβ€”her wolfβ€”is a chilling presence she can’t seem to live without.

Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human… until the cold makes him shift back again.

Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It’s her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay humanβ€”or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

 

 

 

 

Virals by Kathy Reichs and Brendan Reichs !

Tory Brennan, niece of acclaimed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (of the Bones novels and hit TV show), is the leader of a ragtag band of teenage “sci-philes” who live on a secluded island off the coast of South Carolina. When the group rescues a dog caged for medical testing on a nearby island, they are exposed to an experimental strain of canine parvovirus that changes their lives forever.

As the friends discover their heightened senses and animal-quick reflexes, they must combine their scientific curiosity with their newfound physical gifts to solve a cold-case murder that has suddenly become very hot if they can stay alive long enough to catch the killer’s scent.

Fortunately, they are now more than friends. They’re a pack. They are Virals.

If you like Percy Jackson or Harry Potter, chances are you are going to LOVE this book!!

Poor Matt just wants to make his parents proud, do well in school, and just be a regular 13 year old boy! It proves pretty difficult to do this when you are destined to stop the end of the world though.

One of my favorite things about Loki’s Wolves are the illustrations! I am such a sucker for any kind of picture in a book, and these were amazing!! I tried so hard not to flip ahead and I failed hard! They are just so well done!! Go ahead and flip though. It won’t reeaaalllyy spoil the story. A couple of paragraphs ahead you’ll just be able to guess what happens next. Heads up…you’ll be at least slightly wrong every time.

Illustrations aside, this book reads sort of like a comic book! I’m not sure if this makes sense to all of you, but that was the feeling I got from the very beginning. It just feels like a comic book kind of story…but told in words…make sense?

There’s action, there’s adventure, there’s comedy, friendships and trolls! Some betrayal mixed with uncertainty and some amazing bravery! What an amazing read!! I absolutely loved Loki’s Wolves!!! I hope you enjoy it even half as much as I did!

I gave it 9.5/10
