I wanted to read this because the story intrigued me, and when it arrived at work I knew I had to read it for sure so I could tell if it was good to recommend or not. It is classed at work as a 9-12 book but that didn't deter me.
I will admit I was surprised when I opened the book as their are full page pictures in there, but they look so awesome, almost like a comic book type style! I'm a huge Avengers fan so the whole Thor and Loki thing intrigued me but I was quite excited to learn about some of the other Norse Gods as I don't know much about them.
The story didn't mess about, and it jumped straight in with the quest in the first few chapters with a plot twist as well! The whole book was really fast paced and beautifully written with amazing drawings to accompany it.
While you probably go in to the book knowing about Thor and Loki the story also makes references to the fact that in some of the stories Loki and Thor are friends instead of enemies, and doesn't stick to a rigid plotline following the most well known myths, the characters can change their own story to either be friends or enemies. In this one we so far see them as friends.
You also get to learn about the other Gods, so far we've briefly met Odin, as well as Balder and the twins Frey and Freya who have a weird sort of power similar to Witches from the best I can tell and Balder who is impervious to harm except for Mistletoe. I'm excited for the next installment to meet some of the other Gods, as the team are left setting off to find Hel to try and get Balder back from another plot twist that I was really hoping wouldn't happen! This is one of the few books i've read where it's not at all predictable and you are kept guessing as there are so many versions of the myths about these Gods that you don't which one will come true!
