Matt Thorson is a descendant of the Norse god, Thor, and is destined for greatness. At only 13 years old, he's chosen as Blackwell's Champion, the one to defeat the serpent and keep Ragnarok, the end of the world, from happening.
But to do that, he seeks the help of Fen and Laurie, descendants of the Trickster god Loki, Thor's worst enemy. Fen is arrogant and easily antagonized into a fight. But Laurie, his cousin, keeps his anger at bay and in turn, Fen is adamant that he must always protect her.
The three adolescent ancestors must team up and join their special abilities to find what they need to defeat Ragnarok.
This is such a cute story. It's middle-grade so it should be treated as such.
Is it realistic? Hel no. Is it a quick, sweet story about kid versions of the most beloved Norse gods? Hel yes!
I would highly recommend it for people who loved the Percy Jackson books. It's basically the Norse mythology equivalent of that series.
Nowadays, I normally loathe middle-grade novels, simply on the whole 'kids saving the world' and unrealistic factors. But this was a decent surprise that I truly enjoyed.
Anyone looking for a fast-paced, adorable middle-grade series, definitely pick this up. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next book in the series.
