"Before the days of going toe-to-toe with the Avengers, a younger Loki is desperate to prove himself heroic and capable, while it seems everyone around him suspects him of inevitable villainy and depravity...except for Amora.

As he descends upon nineteenth-century London, Loki embarks on a journey that leads him to more than just a murder suspect, putting him on a path to discover the source of his power-and who he's meant to be.… (mere)

Not going to lie, I was a bit underwhelmed. I feel like Mackenzi Lee has an incredible hype behind her, not to mention all the hype about Loki and the MCU. As an origin story for Loki, this was very solid. As a book, this was solid again. As an installment in the greater MCU? Meh. It could have been better. I've read better superhero/superpower books. Now, this is definitely more fantasy heavy as it's a mythological based story, but still, I wanted a bit more action and fighting. I was also expecting a bit more, so scratch that, a lot more chaos coming from the got of mischief and mayhem.

However, it was still a really fun read. I liked the background of Loki. He's never been my favourite MCU character but he managed to hold his own. I also liked Lee's writing style and would definitely consider picking up more of her works because this was a very fun book.

This was a nice read, however it didn't have that something special to make it a favourite. I do think it will e pretty memorable though and I'm fond of it.

Also, I was a bit annoyed that Loki mentioned SHEILD. I thought, at least in the MCU, Peggy Carter starts SHEILD with Howard Stark. I may be wrong though. The reference was cool but it just made me thing Peg and Steve and how much I want a s3 of Agent Carter. ( )

As if I needed more reasons to feel sorry for a Loki. Odin straight up sucks. Don’t get me wrong, Loki is selfish and conceited and he is not a hero. But that doesn’t make Odin any less villainous for making him that way. ( )

I loved this book. PERIOD. End of review.

Just kidding. But seriously I cannot say how much I loved Loki: Where Mischief Lies by Mackenzi Lee. I am a huge Marvel geek and Loki is probably one of my favorite villains/misunderstood deep down good guys. So seeing this book I was curious. And Lee did not disappoint. I mean what is not to love. It puts Loki in Victorian England, that is a mix I didn’t know I needed in my life.

What i enjoyed most about the book was its development of Loki as a complex character that is neither good nor bad, just a person (or god) trying to find acceptance among his family yet still remaining true to who he is. It is a bit of an origin story and connects nicely to his later decisions to take the crown of Asgard by force. An interesting thing that Lee does is point out how it is not just his circumstances that put him into future situations as the villain, it is his own actions. She shows the many opportunists where he could have taken a different path.

Another great point in the book is a call back to the original myths and legends of Loki being someone who is very fluid with his sexual preference and at times his own gender identity (there are multiple Norse myths and tales of Loki switching genders with his magic). He is forced to spend time in a place where it is unacceptable to have these preferences and with another character who has been persecuted for it. But he is very unaffected by these attitudes and even sees them as a primitive way of thought. I wouldn’t call this a love story but the moments of love found in it (between Loki and different characters) are enjoyable to read and never felt forced into the story like it could have easily been.

Over all the end left me wanted more. It actually made me want to go back and watch the Thor films and see this character in such a different light. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a taste of mystery, fantasy, and a bit of romance sprinkled in. ( )

That ending was unsatisfying ( )

My son read this book and really enjoyed it. In fact, he immediately started looking for sequels and other similar titles. This book is an excellent choice for male young adult readers. ( )

The Royal Feast of Gullveig, like all Asgardian feast days, was enjoyable for those who were fond of listening to overly long speeches, exchanging inane niceties, and getting their feet stepped on, because the Great Hall was always too crowded and no one knew how to walk in heels.
