Blurb: In the middle of America, on Route 44, Amy Lewis has a plan — to get to her grandma’s house in time for dinner. Galaxies away Loki is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover, and with no idea what he’s done wrong — this time anyway. But he does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he’s forgotten…
In this tale that is equal parts “Another Fine Myth,” “American Gods,” and “Once Upon a Time,” a very nice midwestern girl and a jaded, still very mischievous Loki must join forces to outwit gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors. If Loki can remember exactly what he’s forgotten and Amy can convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets, her boobs, or three day benders, they just might pull it off…
Review: I have to say, I am not impressed with this book, the Paranormal 13 box set has disappointed me once again.
I couldn’t connect to this one, the writing was choppy and instead of feeling like a well-written story or being able to see it in my head, it just felt like someone writing fan-fiction for the first time. I know that some books may be fan-fiction of something else but, they usually don’t feel that way like this one did.
It repeated the names way to much, Loki this, Loki that, Amy this, Amy that. You know that old saying “that’s my name, don’t wear it out”? Well, this author should have kept that in mind while writing this. I’m so tired of the name Loki and Amy now, no offense to anyone with the name Amy.
I really struggled with finishing this book, even though it was kind of short and even though I have questions about it that would warrant going onto the next book, I just feel no desire to go any further.
It left off on a good cliff-hanger but the story is kind of forgettable and that’s one of the reasons that when I write my review in my journal, I write what the book is about so I won’t forget it.
I really wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, it just didn’t impress me that much.
Thank you for reading my review.
