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