The Testament of Loki
In the sequel to The Gospel of Loki, Loki’s adventures continue when he finds a way out of the end of the world and plans to restart the power of the Norse gods.

The end of the world—also known as Ragnarok to the Norse gods—has occurred, and Loki has been trapped in a seemingly endless purgatory, in torture, until he finds a way to escape. It seems that he still exists in the minds of humanity and uses that as a way to our time.

Back in the ninth world (Earth), Loki finds himself sharing the mind of a teenage girl named Jumps, who is a bit of a mess. She’s also not happy about Loki sneaking his way into her mind, since she was originally calling on Thor. Worse, her friends have also been co-opted by the gods: Odin, Jump’s one-eyed best friend in a wheelchair, and Freya, the pretty one. Thor escapes the netherworld as well and shares the mind of a dog, and he finds that it suits him.

Odin has a plan to bring back the Norse gods ascendancy, but Loki has his own ideas on how things can go—and nothing goes according to plan.

I stopped reading at 100 pages because it is not doing it for me. Lately I decided to leave the books that I do not enjoy and this is one of them. I LOVED the first book and the author should have ended there. There is no need for a second book and if she really wanted to, she should have gone with another approach. I found most of the dialogues cringey and not funny despite the fact that I enjoyed sarcastic and funny tone of Loki in the first book. I also did not like idea of going inside a game and changing the setting to a more modern one. There are more than 200 pages so I'm not going to waste any more time.
Didn't I tell you once that god and dog are only a revolution apart? In spite of all the splendour and pomp and exhortations to be more god; of holy wars and heresies; of miracles and martyrdoms; everything turns, and turns, and turns. Order; Chaos; darkness; light. Rinse and repeat. Reboot and replay.

So, once more with feeling: Let —
there —
be —
light.
