Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Runemarks (Paperback)
I have no idea why it took me so long to finally buy this book. I thought it was a children's book or one of those teen sagas so popular nowadays. This is a great book, suitable for kids and teens as well, but full of great characters and norse mythology.
I have always love these stories, Odin, Loki, Thor...but the new characters the author has created for this book are just as great.
I was transported into a world of magic and runes. I loved the way the author has filled the pages with dialogues and how the language seems modern and old at the same time. I can tell that she had a lot of fun while writing it.
Loki is a fantastic character, both devious and funny, too intelligent for hiw own good, driven into crazy and dangerous situations. You are on his side even when his motives are somewhat shady sometimes.
Maddy is a great heroine, she is not shy, torn by love or full of angst. She is brave, strong and she fights, trying to understand what is going on and where she fits in the story of her own life.
An amazing book, I bought the second part even before I finished this one.
