Book Review: Odin's Ravens

Post by Vanessa Tilley » Mon Dec 31, 2018 4:14 pm

Title of the book: Odin's Ravens
Authors: K. L. Armstrong, M. A. Marr
Series: The Blackwell Pages (#2)
Genres: Fantasy, Mythology
Audience: Young Adult and on

Summary:
Goodreads summary:
When thirteen-year-old Matt Thorsen, a modern day descendant of the Norse god Thor, was chosen to represent Thor in an epic battle to prevent the apocalypse he thought he knew how things would play out. Gather the descendants standing in for gods like Loki and Odin, defeat a giant serpent, and save the world. No problem, right?

But the descendants' journey grinds to a halt when their friend and descendant Baldwin is poisoned and killed and Matt, Fen, and Laurie must travel to the Underworld in the hopes of saving him. But that's only their first stop on their journey to reunite the challengers, find Thor's hammer, and stop the apocalypse--a journey filled with enough tooth-and-nail battles and larger-than-life monsters to make Matt a legend in his own right.

Authors K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr return to Blackwell in the epic sequel to Loki's Wolves with more explosive action, adventure and larger-than-life Norse legends.
Evaluation:
Another fantastic book full of fantasy, adventure and Norse mythology!

I am so impressed with the vivid imagery the authors are able to create! I could easily imagine and experience what the characters went through on their journey into the Underworld. I love reading about all the monsters and trails that they face.

I enjoy learning and experiencing more with all the characters but especially with Laurie. She is such a strong girl who doesn't know what all she is capable of until she is faced with a situation. It is also amazing to watch all the characters grow.

The twist on the end was amazing! Looking forward to finishing up the trilogy soon!!
