In the middle of America, on Route 44, Amy Lewis has a plan — to get to her grandma’s house in time for dinner. Galaxies away Loki is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover, and with no idea what he’s done wrong — this time anyway. But he does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he’s forgotten...
The story follows Amy Lewis who is on a car ride with her pup. At the same time, Loki is waking up in a prison cell. He gets out, because duh...it is Loki, but he ends up crashing to the middle of America. He saves Amy and they team up.
This had a strong start. I was hooked from the first paragraph. I was curious about how everything was going to go down. As the story went along I started getting bored. I nearly gave up but then something happened (can't say) I was hooked again for a bit. Things slowly started falling apart again but I had hope.
And then the ending.
It was a HUGE cliffhanger and it upset me greatly. I am curious about book 2, but not really. Not that cliffhangers are bad, but the story was not intriguing enough to make me want to continue. Maybe someday if I stumble upon book 2, but I won't go digging or spend money on it.
Overall this wasn't horrible but it wasn't good either. There were some good parts and I liked Loki. Amy was okay. I adored Amy's pup. Cute! However...there were so many boring parts and the huge cliffhanger upset me. Maybe I'll read book 2 someday, but I'm not freaking out if I never do. I'll stamp this with 2 stars.
