Based in Norse mythology, Loki is currently trapped on Earth as an 11-year-old. All he has to do to return to Asgard? Show improvement in a month.

When it's revealed that Ragnarok is coming, Matt Thorsen and his friends are the ones that have to stop it. As descendants of Norse gods, they have to stand in for the missing gods in the final battle. Will they be able to save the world? Lots of mythology, action, and adventure will have fans of Percy Jackson reading until the end.
