Waiting on Wednesday: Loki's Wolves

Because we all have something we're waiting for.

Loki's Wolves
Author: Kelley Armstrong & Melissa Marr
Series: Blackwell Pages (#1)
Release Date: 7 May 2013

In Viking times, Norse myths predicted the end of the world, an event called Ragnarok that only the gods can stop. When this apocalypse happens, the gods must battle the monsters—wolves the size of the sun, serpents that span the seabeds—all bent on destroying the world.

The gods died a long time ago.

Matt Thorsen knows every Norse myth, saga, and god as if it was family history—because it is family history. Most people in the modern-day town of Blackwell, South Dakota, in fact, are direct descendants of either Thor or Loki, including Matt’s classmates Fen and Laurie Brekke.

However, knowing the legends and completely believing them are two different things. When the rune readers reveal that Ragnarok is coming and kids—led by Matt—will stand in for the gods in the final battle, he can hardly believe it. Matt, Laurie, and Fen’s lives will never be the same as they race to put together an unstoppable team to prevent the end of the world.

The authors, the authors! The cover is adorable, and the summary sounds awesome, but it's really the authors that have gotten me here. I've been impressed by both of their writing in the past, so I'm excited to see what they can team up and do here.

What do you guys think?
