Wolves (I Bring the Fire #1) by C. Gockel


Thanks to Tantor Media for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review.

3.5 stars

Do you like cliffhangers?  If not, you might as well stop here and not read this book.  There is no conclusion, and the book just simply ends with a major cliffhanger.  The narrator made this book come to life, and I couldn’t stop listening to it.  If it weren’t for the cliffhanger, I would give this book a 4.5 rating.  However, this was a fun and easy read.  The book flipped between Norse mythology, current day, and fairy tales.  There were also some laugh out loud moments especially when Loki speaks to “car” and learns how to use the computer.  There was a small role by Thor who I always thought was extremely cool.

Loki, in Asgard, is trying to save his two sons and ends up on earth rescuing Amy from being accosted.   Amy takes Loki home to her grandmother, Beatrice.  Loki, Amy, and Beatrice.  The book flashbacks to Asgard, which at times is a little confusing.  We see Loki as misunderstood but wants to do the right thing.   Amy, Beatrice, and Loki have an adventure where they meet elves and barely escape back to earth.

This was well written and did keep my interest until the end.  If you like magic, Norse mythology, fairy tales, and cliffhangers, then this book is for you – quite enjoyable!  I will have to read book 2 soon.  I just hope that book 2 wraps this one up and doesn’t end on a cliffhanger!
