When Loki and Amora cause the destruction of one of Asgard's most prized possessions, Amora is banished to Earth, where her powers will slowly and excruciatingly fade to nothing. She was the only person who ever looked at Loki's magic as a gift instead of a threat; without her, he slips further into anguish and the shadow of his universally adored brother, Thor. When Asgardian magic is detected in relation to a string of murders on Earth, Odin sends Loki to investigate. His journey in nineteenth-century London leads to more than just a murder suspect, it puts Loki on a path to discover the source of his power, and who he's meant to be.… (mais)

I love marvel but this just wasn’t for me.

There was a few plot points I didn’t expect but honestly it was mostly predictable.

I did love Theo Bell as a character but that’s about it.

Amora’s manipulative nature was not it, especially with half of the book building up to the main plot. It was frankly irrelevant in my opinion for the majority of the book.

I was mostly determined to read it all the way but once Loki was on Midgard I wanted to DNF it but I didn’t. The beginning chapters of Amora and Loki was the most enjoyable part and it only went downhill from there. ( )

A really fun and snappy Loki adventure that I think a lot of Marvel fans will love reading! I think the atmosphere and dialogue are perfect for this story, and most of the side characters (Theo especially) are a great addition. I actually didn't care for Amora too much: she was predictable and in ways very stereotypical, especially paired with Loki, whose status as a trickster magician with gray morals is constantly in flux and challenged by new ideas/situations.
The setting of Victorian London provides a neat backdrop for this adventure; it was nice to see Loki in Midgard at a time that wasn't contemporary. It made this story seem very Sherlock Holmes-y, which I adore!
The major downside for me was the fact that the ending (for the most part) seemed inevitable (lol Thanos reference). After a point, it becomes pretty clear what's going to happen and that takes away part of the fun. Also, the "mystery" aspect was a bit shallow for my taste; I think it could have been a little trickier, especially considering this is a LOKI story!
On the whole though this was an enjoyable read, and I'd definitely recommend it to any Loki fan, or if you like Victorian-era tales with Jack the Ripper vibes. ( )

The characters were fun, the world was interesting, the plot twists were great, and this was a really good adaptation of what comics Loki feels like. And I really love the way Lee writes Loki's gender fluidity. It's lovely. And I love Theo and Mrs. S.

Overall, it's not my favorite Loki romp, but it is enjoyable. ( )

It took me some time to get into this story. As much as Loki wants to be excepted, he truly never will be if he continues on the path that he is chosen. It was nice to see Thor and Oden. This is definitely one you need to listen to due to the fact that the narrator does the different voices and it almost feels like you’re watching a movie. It will be interesting to see if we get another novel following Loki‘s path. Students who are fans of marvel will enjoy this. ( )

Overall I enjoyed the book, but the writing seemed more juvenile than I'm used to reading to the point where this felt more like a junior book (maybe 6-8 grade) rather than YA, as if the one same-sex peck was what got it slapped with a YA rating. I really enjoyed Lee's [b:The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue|29283884|The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (Montague Siblings, #1)|Mackenzi Lee|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1492601464l/29283884._SY75_.jpg|49527118] but felt that those characters were a lot more thought out with better dialogue and a more realistic relationship. Even though the author had an immeasurable amount of resources for Loki's character, this still read like an ammateur fan fiction (and I've read better on A03 that wasn't backed by an official brand). However, I am undoubtedly biased with my own ideas of Loki's characterisation, which is unavoidable in this case.

I'm honestly surprised Marvel published this as an official release. While it's canon in both the original Norse sagas and many comics with Loki appearances that he can change gender and has an undefined sexualiy, this book seemed to make it a lot more concrete that he's fluid in both which makes the narrative feel that it's for a more specific audience than stereotypical superhero comic book readers, especially fans from the MCU - media that tends to shy away from making Loki's character quite so multi-dimensional.

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.
