Be something he’s forgottenIn this tale that is eual parts “Another Fine Myth” “American Gods” and “Once Upon a Time” a very nice midwestern girl and a jaded still very mischievous Loki must join forces to outwit gods elves magic sniffing cats and nosy neighbors If Loki can remember exactly what he’s forgotten and Amy ca First as has been stated before this is not a complete book It has no kind of conclusion but simply runs on into the next book Is this a selling point No Did I expect it Yes For goodness sake it was offered for free and as a rule that doesn't happen unless the author and publisher have reason to think you will be driven to buy down the lineThat being said I Bring the Fire delivered what it promised It was a fun easy read that delved into Norse mythology Having been a follower of all sorts of myths and fairy tales I am easily sold on any book that handles the characters I know and love well Loki was fun and just enough different to be fresh Thor while playing a small role made me smile every time he showed upSo read the book but beware that if you want any sort of ending you will have to read the next book and then probably the one after that and so forth I am leery to go on as I don't like stories with no ending I like to go on of my own free will not because of a marketing ploy If it had an ending I would have rated it higher because it was a delightful read and fully worth what I spent to read it my time no that was not a dig at the book being free

Book Ù I Bring the Fire Ê C. Gockel

I Bring the FireN convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets her boobs or three day benders they just might pull it offThis first volume of I Bring the Fire is for anyone who suspects chaos and mischief makers might have their own redeeming ualities and anyone who just wants a good fantasy romp through modern Earth ancient Asgard and beyon If ever I thought a book or a series was going to take off into the stratosphere it's this one I think that once the traction gets going this series is going to be 'Hunger Games' bigThis book is also ready made to go as a movie It took me a little while to get used to the fact that it was written totally in the present tense but then I realised that it gave huge visual impact to each scene and I started to see it like I was watching it rather than reading it I look forward to seeing if the movie will live up to my imagination ; I have no doubt some bright film maker will pick this up sooner or laterThe characters were well developed the scenes were stimulating and well described It shifted between worlds both Earth and Asgard and the realm of the elves but it was the character of Loki that drove this book forwardI can't even begin to describe him you'll have to read it yourself but he's brilliantI would like to make one small complaint there were so many things hinted at but not explained Like who actually is bringing the fire Was it Loki doing it subconciously Was it Hel channeling through him Was it Fenrir or perhaps even Amy has hidden powers I do realise that this is only the first part in a series and that there must be some elements to make you read on but there were so many flashbacks for Loki that just hinted at other stories and never explained them that I got uite annoyed when the book ended without rounding even some of them up Sigh I suppose I had better get on and read the next one then
