Middle Grade Monday

Middle Grade Monday is a feature started right here at Reading Nook. It's a way to share news or reviews of middle grade novels on a blog that doesn't exclusively post middle grade content. Feel free to join any time and link up.

This week I want to talk about... Loki's Wolves by K.L. Armstong 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.

So, not only does this novel sound amazing, but it's written by Kelley Armstrong and Melissa Marr. Yes and yes! 

This releases on May 7th, so make sure you add it on Goodreads that way you don't forget to grab it in a few months.

  1. Wow, this sounds really fun/awesome! I love the characters Thor and Loki, and for some reason, I find Vikings really interesting. I bet this one will be a fun adventure + it's written by those two?! I added this book to my TBR, before I was even done commenting :)
