Staff Reviews

Loki, 19-century London, and Mackenzie Lee— need I say more? When I first learned that Lee was going to be writing a Marvel novel, and that it would be Loki no less, I was ecstatic. Loki needed someone like Lee to bring him to life on the page, just as Hiddleston brought him to life on the big screen. In this story, Loki and Thor are practically teenagers. It is great to see more of their pasts. This book is full of all of the things that we love about our mischievous trickster, combined with the writing and characters Lee has given us in the past. It had all of the adventures that Marvel fans have come to expect, as well as some gritty vibes that one could find with Sherlock Holmes or Jack the Ripper. -Victoria 

About the Author

Mackenzi Lee holds a BA in history and an MFA in writing for children and young adults from Simmons College. She is the New York Times best-selling author of the historical fantasy novels Loki: Where Mischief Lies; The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, which won a 2018 Stonewall Honor Award and the New England Book Award; and its sequel, The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy. She is also the author of the nonfiction books Bygone Badass Broads, a collection of short biographies of forgotten women from history. In 2020, she was named one of Forbes's 30 Under 30 for her work in bringing minority narratives to historical fiction. When not writing, she works as an independent bookseller, drinks too much Diet Coke, and romps with her Saint Bernard, Queenie.

Praise For…

"One does not have to be a Marvel film franchise fan to enjoy this action-packed, emotionally resonant origin story of trickster deity and sorcerer Loki. . . . Lee's Loki is a complicated young man trying to define who he is as distinct from his family, something that many young people can relate to, and while Lee does not skimp on the fun—a fabulous party, flirty and witty dialogue—she also clarifies that it is not individual acts that determine whether someone is good or bad."—Publishers Weekly

"The dry, conversational humor ("I think you're trying to inflate the charges against me with synonyms") works in tandem with the story's unflinching plot. 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)

"With his penchant for disruption—for good or ill—fully established, the Loki presented here will delight fans of the legends and the comics."—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (BCCB)

*"This deft, nuanced examination of identity, destiny, and agency is a surprisingly tender addition to the Marvel canon."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
