By Katherine Locke
Loki: Journey Into Mystery Prose Novel by Katherine Locke digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

This truly epic adaptation of Kieron Gillen’s Loki series spans the nine realms as the reborn trickster struggles to walk the hero’s path and save the universe from an epidemic of fear.

THE GOD OF LIES HAS BEEN REBORN. CAN YOUNG LOKI BE ASGARD'S SAVIOR?

When Earth is plagued by an epidemic of fear, ancient prophecy says only Thor can stop the monstrous threat of the Serpent, but without help from Loki, Thor is certain to fail. Aided by a handmaiden from Hel and a demon puppy, Loki must risk everything to find redemption—or doom himself for eternity. Either way, a Nightmare lies in wait hoping to rule the world, and Loki will have to risk everything on his craziest scheme of all!

Meanwhile, new gods threaten to disrupt the status quo, throwing everything out of balance. Loki must act as a responsible ambassador, but will the Nine Realms end in Surtur’s fire? 

Young Loki must cross the realms to reclaim his own story, outwit ancient enemies, struggle to do the right thing, and avoid falling in love.

Slightly Smiling Face“"Loki" by Katherine Locke is a breath of fresh air for the character. I loved the heavier mythological story compared to what the MCU has to offer. The character development and Loki's struggles are refreshing and offer a new perspective. Locke does a great job of exploring Ragnarok and the consequences of Loki's actions. If you are looking for a great story with familiar yet different characters, this is the one. The structure of the story is also interesting, told through different conflicts and from the perspective of a 13-year-old.”

“Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. This was a fun fantasy novel that is making want to watch the Loki show on Disney+. The focus on Loki and him trying to not be the villain was great. We all love a good villain story, but I would argue that Loki is not a villain, but is instead morally grey. This was fun and exciting and the narrator was amazing!”
“This is without a doubt the best audio book I've listened to all year! The narrator portrayed Loki's energy absolutely perfectly and the story telling was incredible. So fast paced and fun. Definitely a must read/listen for any Loki fans! Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and author for the ARC copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.”
“REVIEW When Earth is plagued by an epidemic of fear, ancient prophecy says only Thor can stop the monstrous threat of the Serpent, but without help from Loki, Thor is certain to fail. I love Loki in every one of their guises (both Norse and comic). The epic Journey Into Mystery comic run, spanning 2011-2013 and written by the talented Kieron Gillon, remains one of my favourite iterations, which meant this had huge boots to fill. And fill them it did. Mostly. Loki has been reborn as a child and must overcome everyone's (less than positive) perception of him. After all, his predecessor caused Ragnarok (in this version Asgard crash-landed in Broxton, Oklahoma). But, while this young Loki is different from the one most will know, he still possesses the trademark Loki wit, cunning, and mischief that we have grown to love. In that regard, I think Locke was able to faithfully translate the dialogue and overall story arc. The audiobook only adds to the humour, with a stellar performance by Elliot Fitzpatrick as Loki (Loki and his opinions on social media made me cackle), but he also infused Loki's story with pathos and poignancy. It was also a wonderful idea for the narrator to play the Teller, and those parts worked extremely well. Where it worked less well for me was in the action sequences. There's something about the artwork in graphic novels that adds a visceral edge that felt lacking at times here. That said, I was able to easily follow the storyline and enjoyed this adaptation. I am pleased to say both the novel and audiobook were a lot of fun, and I hope they encourage anyone who reads this story to seek out more of Loki's stories in other formats. Overall Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ *Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to leave an honest review. Loki: Journey into Mystery is published on 19th December in the UK*”
