Today I have my review of Loki by Mackenzi Lee. Contains minor spoilers.
Loki by Mackenzie Lee is, the story of Loki where as a teen he sees his fate with his best friend so all throughout his life he tries to change it. So after a failed mission his father sends him to Migard (Earth) where he continues to try to change his fate but he faces many challenges but at the end he doesn't change his fate.
I would give Loki by Mackenzi Lee a 5 star review because, one the plot isn't really action filled its more like a big book of character development, two the author combines what we already know of Loki/the Norse and gives us a whole new perspective.. Three while there was parts about the book I didn't like for example all throughout the book people treated Loki prejudice like his father and his brother they acted like he wasn't worthy of them and he was evil because of his supposed fate then their was the people on Migard (the SHARP) treated Loki like he was scum and didn't really try to know him just because, of the stories that they had of him. Fourth I felt that Loki's fate could have been changed if they didn't treat him like they did. And finally I liked how Loki is, apart of the LGBTQ+ as being genderfluid and either being as Bi or more likely being more of a pansexual because, it gave us something new of the character Loki.
Not going to lie, I was a bit underwhelmed. I feel like Mackenzi Lee has an incredible hype behind her, not to mention all the hype about Loki and the MCU. As an origin story for Loki, this was very solid. As a book, this was solid again. As an installment in the greater MCU? Meh. It could have been better. I've read better superhero/superpower books. Now, this is definitely more fantasy heavy as it's a mythological based story, but still, I wanted a bit more action and fighting. I was also expecting a bit more, so scratch that, a lot more chaos coming from the got of mischief and mayhem.
However, it was still a really fun read. I liked the background of Loki. He's never been my favourite MCU character but he managed to hold his own. I also liked Lee's writing style and would definitely consider picking up more of her works because this was a very fun book.
This was a nice read, however it didn't have that something special to make it a favourite. I do think it will e pretty memorable though and I'm fond of it.
Also, I was a bit annoyed that Loki mentioned SHEILD. I thought, at least in the MCU, Peggy Carter starts SHEILD with Howard Stark. I may be wrong though. The reference was cool but it just made me thing Peg and Steve and how much I want a s3 of Agent Carter.
As if I needed more reasons to feel sorry for a Loki. Odin straight up sucks. Don’t get me wrong, Loki is selfish and conceited and he is not a hero. But that doesn’t make Odin any less villainous for making him that way.
I loved this book. PERIOD. End of review.
Just kidding. But seriously I cannot say how much I loved Loki: Where Mischief Lies by Mackenzi Lee. I am a huge Marvel geek and Loki is probably one of my favorite villains/misunderstood deep down good guys. So seeing this book I was curious. And Lee did not disappoint. I mean what is not to love. It puts Loki in Victorian England, that is a mix I didn’t know I needed in my life.
What i enjoyed most about the book was its development of Loki as a complex character that is neither good nor bad, just a person (or god) trying to find acceptance among his family yet still remaining true to who he is. It is a bit of an origin story and connects nicely to his later decisions to take the crown of Asgard by force. An interesting thing that Lee does is point out how it is not just his circumstances that put him into future situations as the villain, it is his own actions. She shows the many opportunists where he could have taken a different path.
Another great point in the book is a call back to the original myths and legends of Loki being someone who is very fluid with his sexual preference and at times his own gender identity (there are multiple Norse myths and tales of Loki switching genders with his magic). He is forced to spend time in a place where it is unacceptable to have these preferences and with another character who has been persecuted for it. But he is very unaffected by these attitudes and even sees them as a primitive way of thought. I wouldn’t call this a love story but the moments of love found in it (between Loki and different characters) are enjoyable to read and never felt forced into the story like it could have easily been.
Over all the end left me wanted more. It actually made me want to go back and watch the Thor films and see this character in such a different light. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a taste of mystery, fantasy, and a bit of romance sprinkled in.

This is the first of three young adult novels from New York Times best-selling author Mackenzi Lee that explores the untapped potential and duality of heroism of popular characters in the Marvel Universe. Before the days of going toe-to-toe with the Avengers, a younger Loki is desperate to prove himself heroic and capable, while it seems everyone around him suspects him of inevitable villainy and depravity . . . except for Amora. Asgard's resident sorceress-in-training feels like a kindred spirit-someone who values magic and knowledge, who might even see the best in him. But when Loki and Amora cause the destruction of one of Asgard's most prized possessions, Amora is banished to Earth, where her powers will slowly and excruciatingly fade to nothing. Without the only person who ever looked at his magic as a gift instead of a threat, Loki slips further into anguish and the shadow of his universally adored brother, Thor. When Asgardian magic is detected in relation to a string of mysterious murders on Earth, Odin sends Loki to investigate. As he descends upon nineteenth-century London, Loki embarks on a journey that leads him to more than just a murder suspect, putting him on a path to discover the source of his power-and who he's meant to be.

I'm honestly surprised Marvel published this as an official release. While it's canon in both the original Norse sagas and many comics with Loki appearances that he can change gender and has an undefined sexualiy, this book seemed to make it a lot more concrete that he's fluid in both which makes the narrative feel that it's for a more specific audience than stereotypical superhero comic book readers, especially fans from the MCU - media that tends to shy away from making Loki's character quite so multi-dimensional.
