I was really excited going into this book and It didn't disappoint:-)

Loki's voice cane through loud and clear;-) I loved seeing his point of view on the myths (specially the part of Thor in the wedding dress).. several times i got odd looks cause i was shaking my head and laughing at multiple parts.

Loki is a fascinating character... so many sides to him and yes I do love Tom hiddleston portraying him but the more i read separately from the marvel films, the more fascinated I became..

loved how each chapter was headed by a quote from loki and different "lessons" throughout too... still not a fan of Odin.

at the first couple chapters, I was "meh"... not seeing much new but the further I got in, my doubts flew out the window.

Seeing how Loki was treated and how everyone distrusted him, I didn't blame him for wanting revenge... even if he went a bit far at times.

A bit of a different twist on Sigyn and Angie (for me anyway).. a couple of Loki's thoughts on his wife had me snorting and smiling but I liked how miss Harris wrote her.

A little twist at the end with one part of the prophecy had me blinking. . did not see that coming.. once the prophecy was laid out in full it made sense and you wonder if things would have been different if Odin and Loki had trusted each other.. the ending is open, teasing you with. possible future tales of our favorite trickster.

all in all, a great book and worth shipping from the UK:-)

excuse any typos, typing from phone, wil fix any major ones tomorrow
