    I am foregoing the temptation to give my own book five stars even though I think it is five star material Is this maturity and restraint I hope not.

    Almost everybody in my friends circle know that I have a hook for rough tough, badass heroes heroines I can say for sure that I found a badass, naughty, evil, awful, disgusting, terrible, sly and really bad character god in this short book Did I like him Yes Did I enjoy reading about his adventures Erm the biggest part the scheming, pranks and tricks were interesting and some even funny, but there were ones which I can describe as disgusting and pew I did enjoy the never ending fight between two brothers But if you hope to see the awesome and sexy Thor Chris Hemsworth of course , I can assure you there is no, not even a bit This book is devoted to Loki.I think that any person, who has some interest in Norse gods or mythology, can find something interesting and even appealing in this book as the author tried not to wander far from the myth and I can say it about myself for sure I got most of my information about the Norse gods and myths from the movies which are quite decent and romantic and some reading during school years which was simpler and slighter in plot Loki Nine Naughty Tales of the Trickst...

    Wickedly Bookish Reviewshttp wickedlybookish.blogspot.com I had lots of fun reading this book so I intend to have a good time with the review as well I got my copy as a kindle freebie thanks to my Wigs telling me about the deal Thanks Wigs This review is brought to you by the Godking himself He is ever so excited to be involved in a review of a book that is about his absolute favorite subject himself.Let me start off by saying Mike Vasich has truly captured the unique flavor of Norse mythology that is adventurous and fantastic, but at the same time quite bizarre The Trickster figure that spans across multiple mythologies and belief systems has always fascinated me and Loki is no exception This short story collection recounts many of Loki s most famous tales, and opens up a whole new perspective on the god of mischief s reasoning If you are not familiar with Norse legends let me give you a quick lesson on the general structure of your classic Norse myth.Yes, Loki my love That is the injustice you are faced with Take comfort in the fact that your fangirl army is strong and keep reminding yourself thatWhether you love him or love to hate him, Loki is without doubt one of the most fascinating characters to come out of mythology in general This shapeshifter and master of magic spans genders and even species sometimes both...

    Ahhh Loki, how I adore thee.Here Vasich presents a collection of little short stories, both of classic mythology and original, about Loki and his doings As the author put in his blog, the stories are saucy, and I found myself saying out loud to my computer by story 3 This is indeed saucy I must admit I have never read any Norse mythology before, so by about story four I was going WHAT THE SHIT I was, however, assured by my friend Jess that in fact these things do happen in the real stories, and then I laughed and was like awesome It also was a bit to my detriment that I am was unfamiliar with Norse gods I ve only ever heard of Thor, Odin, and Loki , because the stories don t do much to explain the different gods, as it is assumed you know who these people are already I might have liked a brief phrase that explained who they were anytime a new one was introduced, but I usually got enough info by the time the story was over.I was glad the author included a note at the end which I saw before I finished that explained you might notice some strange logic lapses and that they are purposeful And I read the note about the same time I came upon the strangeness and I realize it s actually quite an interesting concept Normall...

    DISCLAIMER I love Loki and anything Loki related that being said there was absolutely no way that I wasn t NOT going to enjoy and like this book That is all now on to the review Overall I really enjoyed this book It was a collection of short stories about Loki and overall a quick read Having only read some Norse mythology I recognized most of the stories in the story but liked the slight twists Vasich threw in and the witty repartee between the characters While I love the character of Loki I did wish that some other characters, mainly Odin, had a bigger role in this collection of stories But I love how dynamic of a character Loki is Out of all the gods in Norse mythology I think he is the most fascinating and compelling character He lives up to his name of the Trickster God, even reading the stories I found myself wondering what his angle was.Loki is the trouble maker, the person who just likes to piss people off and cause trouble just because it is fun While some of us may be guilty of this, Me especially, it is so easy it annoy my mom sometimes it is just funny I know...

    After reading Gaiman s Norse Mythology , I did what any good book junkie does hunted down books on the topic With a title like Loki Nine Naughty Tales of the Trickster , this was an easy sell for this long time Loki fan on that topic, I would like to say that the Marvel movie franchise has ruined my brains, because I can now only picture Thor and Loki as Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston Loki is a very complex god Clever and contrarian, taking pleasure in stirring the pot and upsetting everyone in Asgard He is not merely a nuisance I actually think he is the most multi layered god of the Norse pantheon the others often have the same predictable behavior over and over again, which is why it is so easy for Loki to throw a wrench in the gears Thor smashes giants with his hammer, Odin growls at everyone, Balder is just the nicest and handsomest thing anyone has ever seen If you had to deal with people who behave like broken records for thousands of years, wouldn t you want to shake things up a little bit As it eventually becomes clear when you read stories about him, Loki is devious and treacherous and occasionally ridiculously destructive , but he has a higher purpose than just running around pissing people off ...

    Original read 8 5 to 8 7 12Re read 2015 A wonderful collection of short stories about our favorite Trickster God Loki is certainly one of the most fascinating characters in mythology, delighting in causing mischief mayhem Before I read this book the first time and before seeing the Thor movie I hadn t known much about Norse mythology at all Just never thought about it really After seeing the movie, I looked it up and was quite fascinated by it all While I love Tom Hiddleston as Loki, I am intrigued by him in his own right as well.These stories aren t naughty in that sense completely, there is some elements but it s mostly Loki causing his own brand of trouble It was alot of fun to see his personality shine through and the wonderful ways his mind worked.Only one story I didn t care for, it was at the end It was slightly disturbing and felt off to menot because I objected to the content in that sense really, just that it didn t seem to me...

    Actual Rating 3.5 stars In some respects, Loki Nine Naughty Tales of the Trickster fell a little short for me me due to my expectations After having finished Mike Vasich s full length novel Loki, I was eager to see what his short story collection about the trickster would entail As I said in my review of Loki, I really adored Vasich s sympathetic take on Loki and wondered if the short stories of this collection would tie into the backstory of the character we had met in the novel.Alas, the nine short stories therein rather support the Loki seen in traditional Norse mythology he s less of a cunning strategist as were seen in some shades of Loki s character in Loki and of the usual wily character who s sometimes quite petty and childish in his schemes Granted, I love when writers are faithful to myths while at the same time offering a spin narrative wise, but I guess I was still pondering the question of why the gods held such a low opinion of Loki within the novel s narrative frame and hoping that the nine naughty tales of the trickster would give that backstory Instead, the novel and this short story collection are very much apart from each other, so readers should take that into account whether they be starting the novel or the short story collect...
