Whoo One book off the to read listAndI read it in less than a week, something I haven t done in a while Exciting, with a charming premise, I did enjoy this It was a nice change fromMere ChristianityI could read it to relax The one thing I would say that covers most of my critique is that it seemed too easy in some parts, both the writer and for the characters For the author, it was too easy simply beacuse she used easy methods of getting the readers to feel what she wanted them Whoo One book off the to read listAndI read it in less than a week, something I haven t done in a while Exciting, with a charming premise, I did enjoy this It was a nice change fromMere ChristianityI could read it to relax The one thing I would say that covers most of my critique is that it seemed too easy in some parts, both the writer and for the characters For the author, it was too easy simply beacuse she used easy methods of getting the readers to feel what she wanted them to For example this isn t a spoiler it happens in the first chapter , when we first meet Buzz, we immediately learn both that he s being bullied, and that his mother is missing Pretty easy way to win the sympathy of the audience Some of the twists were also fairly guess able I don t think easy for the characters has to be explained Just one other criticism It s very clear that the author want us to view Mary as smart , so she writes that Mary knows a ton of random facts I just thought it was a one dimensional way to express smart Intelligent people don t necessarily know so much information Ok, I m a harsh reviewer But besides those things, I did like this Just that kind of book that makes me happy [ READ EBOOK ] ⚔ Secrets of Valhalla ⚔ Readers will clamor for , especially those who loved Rick Riordan s Norse themed The Sword of Summer ALA BooklistTwo friends awaken a world of myth and magic in this epic middle grade fantasy perfect for fans of Rick Riordan and Anne UrsuIt s not every day that you find a famous weatherwoman bound by magic to a tree deep in the woods Or discover that the weatherwoman is in fact Sunna, the Norse Goddess of the Sun, and one of the seven day guardians who keep time in order But that s just what happens to new friends Buzz and Mary and it s only the start of their adventureNow, as the people of Earth are forced to repeat the same Saturday over and over again, Buzz and Mary must journey to collect the Runes of Valhalla and awaken the other day guardians, before vengeful god Loki can get to them first e Arc provided by Edelweiss I don t know why exactly, but it just didn t work for me There are, in my opinion, better middle grade series about Norse mythology out there. It was a good, easy, fast read I enjoyed the introduction to Norse mythology Well written, good pacing, and I love that it s a standalone book Not too many of those being written nowadays. More of a 3.5, but I appreciate the use of Norse mythology here. I really, really wanted to like this book ButIt just didn t make sense.Everything happened so quickly, the pacing was really weird As soon as we reached one place setting, and we finished processing what was happening there, we were in another, different place We never got a chance to really explore the different gods and goddesses realms Which is really a bummer because THEY WERE SO COOL AND CREATIVE I wanted to spend soooo muchtime at them than we actually did Albeit, there w I really, really wanted to like this book ButIt just didn t make sense.Everything happened so quickly, the pacing was really weird As soon as we reached one place setting, and we finished processing what was happening there, we were in another, different place We never got a chance to really explore the different gods and goddesses realms Which is really a bummer because THEY WERE SO COOL AND CREATIVE I wanted to spend soooo muchtime at them than we actually did Albeit, there were somestranger placeslike view spoiler the Cloud where the god of the sky lives, who was eaten by this giant data worm and has been stuck there forwho knows how longand then our main character gets eaten, and thenhe gains all of the knowledge of the world Which Makes no sense at all, but we can roll with that, sure, why not hide spoiler The characters weremeh Buzz which is short for Buzzard, of course was a fairly good main character His motivations were relatable, and he was pretty funny Nothing very exciting or unique about him Mary was pretty cool, she had a funny personality, but was a bit flat Also, this book takes place in the UK So all of the characters have British accents except for Mary, she s an American exchange student , which I thought was kind of cool This will probably sound weird coming from me, but I actually liked the parts that took place at the school I thought it was just really funny and realistic and I kinda wishhad taken place there because it was such a well written setting.The ending view spoiler It wasn t bad, but it wasn t this epic, climactic battle There was a twist, which I usually like, but this one, I just didn t really care about In the end, it s revealed that Loki is not the man in the chair, but actually just the underling of another god, Tyr, who was actually the bad guy the whole time woooow I dunno It fell kinda flat for me hide spoiler Overall, the beginning of this book was good, it had a great setup, interesting story, the plot was taking an interesting directionand then the middle was justcrazy Stuff was happening so fast and with little to no explanation before moving on to the next scene andit was really disconcerting By the time it was the end, I just wanted to know the outcome, not really caring very much about the characters involved It s really sad, because this book sounded so so good And I LOVED The Book of Wonders by Jasmine Richards SO MUCH I guess I was just hoping this one would be as good.Also, little side noteit s not even exclusively Norse gods It s a mix of Roman, Greek, a whole bunch of other mythologies I was kind of disappointed by that, it kinda ruined my suspension of disbelief And despite the blurb, LOKI IS HARDLY IN THIS BOOK AND I AM NOT A FAN.3 5
