    • Abstract:
      Summary: 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.

Booklist Reviews 2019 September #2

*Starred Review* Young Loki is eager to prove his worthiness to his father, Odin, but in Asgard, Loki's magic is something to be controlled and hidden, while his warrior brother Thor's strength and skill is celebrated. So when Loki meets Amora, who is training to be a sorceress, he finds kinship. That is, until Amora is banished to Midgard, or Earth, where her powers (and life) will painfully fade away. Years later, still in a quest to prove himself, Loki is sent to Earth by Odin to investigate murders where magic is suspect. All the while, Loki is fighting Odin's foresight that one of his sons will lead an army against Asgard, determined it won't be him. Lee (The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, 2017) infuses Loki with the signature wit and charm her characters are revered for. The dry, conversational humor (I think you're trying to inflate the charges against me with synonyms) works in tandem with the story's unflinching plot. Lee deftly reveals the depths of Loki's struggle to grapple with his need for approval as well as his desire to make his own destiny and find an authentic identity. This gender-fluid antihero in nineteenth-century London will draw in diverse readership, though no prior knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is necessary. This mischievous origin story is sure to satisfy fans of this popular character. Grades 7-11. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2019 July #3

One does not have to be a Marvel film franchise fan to enjoy this action-packed, emotionally resonant origin story of trickster deity and sorcerer Loki. Through a deep dive into the sibling rivalry between Thor and Loki, Lee (The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue) traces Loki's sometimes-questionable choices to his attempt to win over their father Odin and be seen as a true contender for the Asgardian throne. Upon peering into the Godseye Mirror during the Royal Feast of Gullveig, Odin sees what he believes to be a treasonous act by one of his sons. The vision sets off a series of events that leads to the mirror's destruction and the banishment of Loki's only friend— sorcerer's apprentice Amora, who has been teaching Loki to use his magic, is sent to Midgard (Earth), where magic does not exist. After a series of magically induced murders plagues London, Loki goes to help and prove that he can be trusted. Lee's Loki is a complicated young man trying to define who he is as distinct from his family, something that many young people can relate to, and while Lee does not skimp on the fun—a fabulous party, flirty and witty dialogue—she also clarifies that it is not individual acts that determine whether someone is good or bad. Ages 12–up. Agent: Rebecca Podos, Rees Agency. (Sept.)
