Product Description

Book Description

A new middle-grade series from bestselling authors Kelley Armstrong and Melissa Marr!

Product Description

Seven kids, Thor's hammer and a whole lot of Valkyries are the only things standing against the end of the world . . .

When thirteen-year-olds Matt Thorsen and Fen and Laurie Brekke - modern descendents of Thor and Loki - discovered they were destined to take the places of the Norse gods in an epic battle against the apocalypse, they thought they knew how things would play out. Gather the other descendents, defeat a giant serpent and save the world. No problem, right?

But their journey grinds to a halt when their friend Baldwin is poisoned. Matt, Fen and Laurie must travel to the murky Underworld to try and save him before they can continue with their quest to find Thor's hammer.

Ahead lie colossal monsters and legendary battles . . . Will Matt and the other descendents do enough to become heroes in their 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Follow-up! 18 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed this follow up to Loki's Wolves! Of course it ended on a cliff hangar again leaving a question mark over Fen but I'm hoping that the scenario is something Odin/Owen foreseen and that Fen will find a way to turn it around to the advantage of his friends.

It was a bit of a shock to discover who the raiders were working for, while I wasn't a fan of who it turned out to be I didn't think this person would be the one leading the enemy, I honestly thought it would be someone else!

I was glad they got Baldwin back and that Owen is finally with them but the other twist was that the chosen representative of Loki wasn't who they thought it was. They pretty much have everyone they need for the final battle now although I'm not sure if they have everything they need. I'm also happy to see the kids are getting more confident in themselves and their abilities.

I can't wait for the next book to see how the final battle goes! If only I didn't have to wait so long!

5.0 out of 5 stars Chapter by Chapter's review of Odin's Ravens 10 Aug 2014
By MaryAnn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
After reading the first novel in the book series The Blackwell Pages, Loki’s Wolves by authors K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr—I couldn’t wait to read the next installment in the series. Odin’s Ravens was intense, awesome and tons of Norse mythology as main characters Fen, Laurie and Matt try to stop the ensuing end of the world, Ragnarok. I wasn’t really sure what to expect from the novel, especially since Loki’s Wolves held a lot of surprise twists and turns that I didn’t see coming.

In Odin’s Ravens takes place right after where Loki’s Wolves left off. Fen, Laurie and Matt have all headed straight to Helen’s realm, the land of the dead, to get their friend Baldwin back in hopes of re-writing the sequence of myths and stop Ragnarok from coming. Heading into Helen’s realm, the trio faces threats they’ve never faced before, like two-headed jotuns, zombies and evil zombie kings who will stop at nothing to thwart Matt’s plans. However as their adventure continues, Matt and the cousins find new allies, old friends and Valkyries all ready for the end of days to arrive. What the trio doesn’t expect are for old faces to make reappearances, secrets to be revealed and a choice to be made for when Ragnarok arrives.

Odin’s Ravens has messed me up. And I mean that in a really good way. The entire time I spent reading can be broken up like this: I was either a) On the edge of my seat, hoping that nothing went wrong b) freaking out because the possibility of something going wrong was very real or c) something wrong would happen and I had no idea how Matt, Laurie and Fen would go about fixing it. Odin’s’ Ravens is written in a way that will leave readers not only intrigued but also unsure of what will come next, with twists and turns just waiting to reveal themselves.

Readers who have read Loki’s Wolves know that Matt, Fen and Laurie are left on a quest to find mjolnir and avert the end of the world. Yeah, totally cool man. Except that Odin’s Ravens takes that and shows that there may not get to be such a hopeful, simple outcome with Ragnarok fast approaching. As I said before things just get bad, bad, bad for the characters or make it look like things are about to go pretty bad. It made for an exciting story and the novel’s conclusion—readers will be left begging for more. To know what will happen next (because seriously it ends on such a high note).

A big thing in Odin’s Ravens is character development. In Loki’s Wolves there’s still a lot of feuding between Fen and Matt, neither of them really consider each other friends at first, Fen starts off as a cutthroat little crap—but that all changes in Odin’s Ravens. Fen’s character changes so much in the novel and it’s not hard to notice, he grows loyal to the group that he’s with, fesses up to things he wouldn’t in the novel prior. Plus characters with smaller roles in the last novel return and are expanded on a little bit more.

There are still a lot of questions that have been left wandering through my mind ever since Odin’s Ravens has reached its end. What happens next is the first that comes to mind, the next being do things resolve? Does anybody die in Ragnarok? Will I be left weeping over fictional characters? Only the authors know, but I have a pretty good feeling that the next novel will leave readers on emotional rollercoasters as Odin’s Ravens did.

I would have to recommend this series to readers who are big fans of Norse mythology. Don’t let the fact that this is a middle-grade novel deter you, the writing is still pretty amazing and the plot is great. If you want a novel that is non-stop action and adventure with no romance involved you’ve gotta give The Blackwell Pages a read. Like, right now.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very good adventure and mythojlogy 10 Sep 2014

Accompany the young modern versions of the Nordic Mythology gods, as they live an adventure leading to Ragnarök. Will each of them find and follow his/her Destiny, and accomplish his/her part of the drama? Will the ancients feats repeat themselves, or won't the antique legends be repeatedl to the letter?

A very well tailored adventure, Rick Riordan's stile, about Nordic Mmythology. Well lwritten and lively adventure.
2.0 out of 5 stars Too much going on in one book 27 May 2014
By Kris @Imaginary Reads - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I felt like there is too much going on in one book. The tweens go through adventure after adventure without pause. There's barely any time for a break before something new comes up. While this can sometimes make for a fast-paced, thrilling story, it didn't work for this story. Rather, it felt like too much is trying to be crammed in too much in one book, resulting in a lack of focus to the story. On top of that, the tweens don't really know what they're doing and often rely on other people to tell them what to do; instead of solving things themselves, they stumble around until divine intervention turns them in a different direction.

The multiple POV didn't work for me either. While I like multiple POVs when the different narrators contribute an important perspective to the story, it doesn't do more than give us insight into different characters' thoughts here. It wasn't like they got separated, or one person knew something that another person didn't and it was important for us to know. Here, I feel like it's unncessary for the most part and actually detracted from the story because it jumps around from narrator to narrator so much and even made small skips in time that created awkward gaps in the storyline.

I do like the team. They're a group of likable characters in their own ways. Matt is expected to be the leader and champion despite the lack of experiences to draw from. Laurie wants to fight, but the others keep telling her to stay back. Baldwin is easy going and amiable. Owen wants to help but has to stay back because of his powers. And I have a soft spot for Fen especially because he keeps trying to do the right thing and being awkward going about it. The group dynamics are fun and filled with good humor. However, the dialogue often seems forced and tends to drag, as if it's placed there for the sake of conversation.

With one more book to go, it doesn't feel like the tweens have matured enough to take on Ragnarok. The biggest thing going on plotwise here is that they have achieved some important items and goals that may help them in their final battle. There is also the discovery of the brains behind the Raiders and the nasty cliffhanger the story left us on. While I wouldn't recommend this book to MG-fantasy readers as there are better ones out there, chances are high that I'll pick up Thor's Serpents because I've grown attached to some characters, and I'm interested in seeing how this all goes down.
