This is the first of three young adult novels from New York Times best-selling author Mackenzi Lee that explores the untapped potential and duality of heroism of popular characters in the Marvel Universe.

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. Asgard's resident sorceress-in-training feels like a kindred spirit-someone who values magic and knowledge, who might even see the best in him.

But 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. Without the only person who ever looked at his magic as a gift instead of a threat, Loki slips further into anguish and the shadow of his universally adored brother, Thor.

When Asgardian magic is detected in relation to a string of mysterious murders on Earth, Odin sends Loki to investigate. 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Narrator Oliver Wyman embodies everyone’s favorite trickster god in this exciting origin story…Wyman takes on the central role of Loki with relish, emphasizing his teenaged sarcasm and petulance while subtly exposing the self-doubt underlying them. He excels at the rapid shifts of tone such a changeable character requires. Wyman also creates memorable voices for the supporting characters—from dim but affable Thor and sly sorceress Amora to the plummy accents of England’s Sharpe Society members. Listeners will love this magical adventure. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

  • “With his penchant for disruption—for good or ill—fully established, the Loki presented here will delight fans of the legends and the comics.”
