In the middle of America, Amy Lewis is on her way to her grandma's house. She's being chased by a very bad wolf. 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 that Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something that he's forgotten....
In this urban fantasy tale that is equal parts Dresden Files and American Gods, a very nice Midwestern girl and a jaded, 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, earthly pleasures, or three-day benders, they just might pull it off.

If you like Norse mythology, you're going to enjoy this well-researched story. The plot is fun and interesting, and I feel like I've gotten to enjoy the characters all the more because I can tell Gockel has done a lot of studying on the sagas. Looking forward to the rest of the series!
The first thing that struck me was how much the narrator sounded like Siri. Once I got past that I actually enjoyed the story. Interesting twist on classic Norse myths and even modern retellings of those myths.
