Comments I Bring the Fire: Part I Wolves

  • Montzalee Wittmann

    Wolves (I Bring the Fire #1) by C. Gockel is a great Norse God story only Loki is more the good guy! I really got into this book so much I had to buy more of the series. Thor isn't a big jerk, but pretty big. Odin, a super jerk but he is also too powerful to mess with. Loki ends up on earth, again, and helps a gal in trouble. She kinda takes him in, thinks he needs help. It is so funny, exciting, suspense filled at times, great fantasy, and I have had this book a while and why did I wait? Great [...]

    Okay - so for starters I grew up on Thor comics. I always thought he was one of the coolest of the Marvel superheroes and I absolutely loved it when he would duke it out with The Hulk and other assorted big bad brawlers. I also chewed through and understood the original Norse myths and they were some of my favorites as a kid. So I was intensely excited when I came across this series - particularly after my past experience.I'm not going to mention any names but I have read THREE different e-books [...]

    I can’t say that I understood the point of this story. It was both contemporary and time travelling mythology. I love Loki and Thor in the movies, but I don’t think I care for them in books. I was kinda bored. In this book, Amy Lewis is lover of animals and working her way through school to be a veterinarian. When she gets attacked on the road, she is rescued by a man calling himself Thor. This person was trying to find a way to save his family back in Asgard, but now their fates became inte [...]

    New to me author. I'm shelving it under UF as there isn't really any romance to speak of least not yet(maybe never)but perhaps scifi would be better as the story revolves around Norse Mythology and the nine worlds. Butwhatever. UF it is since the majority of the present time story takes place on Earth.I thought the character of Loki (yes, Asgard's Loki) was well done. He is the god of chaosbut so much more. Gockel takes the myth and twists it subtly, giving us a look into how Loki got his rep, a [...]

  • Jesse Sprague

    First, as has been stated before, this is not a complete book. It has no kind of conclusion but simply runs on into the next book. Is this a selling point? No. Did I expect it? Yes. For goodness sake it was offered for free and as a rule that doesn't happen unless the author and publisher have reason to think you will be driven to buy more down the line.That being said I Bring the Fire delivered what it promised. It was a fun easy read that delved into Norse mythology. Having been a follower of [...]

  • Morv

    I Bring the Fire: Part 1 is about Amy, a young woman who is trying to get herself through college and become a vet, who we meet trying to get home to her grandmother's when she has an accident.It's also about Loki, the well known god of tricks, lies and mischief, who find that his family, his sons and his ex-wife were all in trouble and he is the one who needs to save them. Of course he finds himself having to go to Midgaird and meets/saves Amy in the process and their little adventure begins.I [...]

    I read this as part of the Gods and Mortals: Fourteen Free Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Novels Featuring Thor, Loki, Greek Gods, Native American Spirits, Vampires, Werewolves, & More. Its good, really, really good. A 4.5 read.It is an interesting take on Loki. I really like how fleshed-out and real Loki is in this story. The pacing is great, the dialogue is real and not forced. People behave generally they way you would expect them to. It's just a marvelous little gem of a story.Would I re [...]

  • Jenny

    I have to say I did like the stories that featured Loki and Thor in their world and I could see where the author tried to bring those adventures into the real world setting but failed. The protagonist was annoying and it was never real clear why Loki was pulled towards her which would've been a big hook if that was explained. (view spoiler)[ There was also the mysterious 'red mist' where the voices kept talking about how Loki needed to come rescue someone. That too was also something that would' [...]

    If ever I thought a book or a series was going to take off into the stratosphere it's this one! I think that once the traction gets going, this series is going to be 'Hunger Games' big!This book is also ready made to go as a movie. It took me a little while to get used to the fact that it was written totally in the present tense, but then I realised that it gave huge visual impact to each scene and I started to see it like I was watching it rather than reading it. I look forward to seeing if the [...]

  • Matt Kelland

    Disappointing. It has an intriguing premise, but Gockel is no Gaiman when it comes to storytelling. The present tense narration feels amateurish, the characters feel flat, and I don't get any sense of magical wonder. I persevered, hoping I'd find something to hook my interest, but it just didn't grab me.

  • P. Kirby

    I Bring the Fire by C. Gockel is in part the beneficiary of my recent reading slump. Which isn't to say it's not an enjoyable read. Just that I've had such a hard time finding books that engaged my brain, books that didn't slay my muse (with boredom), that I'm feeling really generous toward any that "work." Hence, it's really more of a 4.5 starred review, but gets rounded up for making the muse happy.Amy Lewis, veterinarian-in-training, is driving home for school break. Her little canine compani [...]

  • Barbara ★

    Apparently there is a new thing for Indie authors~serial books where they write and quickly publish a short story which they add to again and again to create a full-fledged book. To me this is simply a marketing tool to get you to pay more. Had I realized this was that kind of book, I would have passed it up, freebie or not. Now I'm familiar with Loki, Thor and Odin but I don't know all the myths associated with them. The story just barrels on as if the reader knows every detail and fails to exp [...]

    This book has the honor of being the first for-pleasure-intentionally-read-book-on-my-Kindle ever.I've had a Kindle for three years and only used it to read books submitted to me for review. I downloaded some titles that I might find interesting to read for pleasure, but had left them stubbornly unread. Long live the printed page and heft of a real book in my handuntil now.I came across I Bring the Fire Part 1: Wolves in an email from Bookbub. Bookbub is an email newsletter delivered to your ema [...]

    This was one of those books that I read while sipping my morning coffee, brought with me into the bathroom, neglected my parental duties, stayed up too late to read, and generally just could not put down. I am completely enthralled with the mythical world created by Ms. Gockel and don't want to leave it! I'm going to have to force myself to wait a week before I buy part II of the series (Monsters) so that I can get caught up on essential tasks. (I've been reading Norse mythology and fiction insp [...]

    I've always been VERY VERY stingy when it comes to Norse mythology, as it is one of my favourite pantheons to study. This book does NOT disappoint. I honestly did not want to put this book down, and audibly swore (shouted "Paskat"you can look it up) when I reached the end of the first part. I didn't want the book to end! (Of course I immediately went out and bought the second partd once I get a bit more money, I'll grab the third parte you student loans!)It did take me a while to adjust to C. Go [...]

  • Rachel

    I don't think it's possible to love Loki more than I did. Make no mistake, he is the only star of this show! The guy is charming, cheeky, and behaves inappropriately on occasion (living up to his title of God of Mischief) but at his core, he's a brave and noble man with a good heart. It's clear that he's suffered his fair share of heartache in life and it was incredibly easy for me to see him as a real person. That's true of the supporting characters as well we don't get to see all that much of [...]

  • Valerie Simpson

    I loved this book. really, it was exactly what I needed. This is the kind of thing I love, funny, imaginative,and I'd wandered so far away from this recently. The only thing i didnt love was the ending usually put off by books that just kind of stop. But, it does make me want to start reading the next book immediately, so i suppose the author did her job :)

  • Dennis Fahey

    See John, see John run. Go, John, go!This reads like a 2nd grade primer combined with a intro to Nordic myths, with a touch of the recent Marvel comic Avenger movies. I'll pass, didnt finish, BUT I TRIED! Twice.

  • Mya

    I enjoyed this book an felt the mythical aspects were a plus in the right direction.

  • Sharon Mariampillai

    This was an interesting read. It was an interesting storyline that involved Norse mythology and Loki. I really enjoyed it. The characters were great. I really liked Loki. He is a complexed character. In my opinion, he is a bit rough around the edges. Amy is the complete opposite. She is the forgiving one, and I really liked how Loki and Amy progress throughout the story. I really liked learning more about Norse mythology. The ending was a bit abrupt as well. I hope that the other books in the se [...]

    Quirky Mythological Adventure with a CliffhangerAmy's dog Fenrir is small, ferocious, and required a DNA test to be positively identified as a canine. In Norse mythology, Fenrir was the wolf child of the Norse God of Mischief, Loki. The wolf child was so vicious that the gods tethered him to a tree on a lost island. According to the myth, Fenrir will defeat Odin, the Norse gods leader.In I Bring the Fire Part I: Wolves, by C. Gockel, Amy is a veterinary student at Oklahoma State University who s [...]

  • Laura

    I knew nothing about Norse Mythology, I'm not generally interested in any sort of Mythology, haven't even seen the Thor movies. I did know of Loki, but not much more than his name. But I loved this book! It totally brought Loki to life, I learned quite a lot about him and really enjoyed reading his stories. I love how the author interwove his stories/past with the current story. It helped get to know him, understand his baggage and the skeletons in his closet.In a nutshell, I adore Loki. He's so [...]

  • Fiona

    "It turned out to be not such a great idea. Thor Odinson, that bastard, is apparently a hero in a “comic book” and “movie franchise” and they thought he was lying." This whole story was non stop humour, quick delivery of lines, myth meets modern day world and Loki being his mischievous self - and I loved it so much! There were a few moments that needed a suspension of disbelief, but after all, this was a fictional story about Loki coming down to modern day America and meeting a pretty gi [...]

  • Marla Mutch

    What a fun book. Quirky, different, great characters. She starts the book as if she is writing for a tv or movie, but quickly shifts the point of view to a more flowing, easier to get into point of view. I could not put it down and ordered the second book as soon as I had finished the first. If you like the book form of Sookie Stackhouse you will like this. Same charming humans and confusing paranormals. Can you trust a guy named Loki? Probably not, but he sure is exciting to be around. This is [...]

  • Abra

    Warning: This book has a cliffhanger ending.I never connected with the characters or their problems. Part of the reason is the writing style (present tense). I'm not sure why I didn't connect with the characters more. There are flashbacks to Loki's past, which are very sad. Amy, the heroine, is reasonably smart, but I didn't get her sometimes. At one point (at 72%) she thinks Loki is twisted and perverted, but he hasn't done anything to warrant that opinion so I'm not sure what she's talking abo [...]

  • Victoria Case

    I really liked, no wait, loved this book! I've already downloaded the second book in the series because it is well written and the plot moves along at a pretty good clip. Well written characters and while it seems everyone is writing about the Norse gods these days, I enjoyed the different viewpoint. Can't wait to start book 2!

  • Luka Novak

    Interesting modern day spin on Norse legends. Norse legends about Loki and other gods freely mix with modern setting. Loki is not evil person, he just likes to cause mischief, but that doesn't mean he doesn't care for others, be in Norse or modern day Americans.A bit short but worth a read for different setting alone.

  • Denise

    Authors like this are why I continue to take chances on the free books. Smart, well-written, well-edited, great story line, and action. I had loaded this on my kindle a while ago but put off reading it. It is amazing and I immediately bought 2, 3 and 3.5 installments and devoured them as well. Highly recommend the entire story and will keep a lookout for new books.

  • Lisa

    1st book in a Norse trilogy, I have always loved Greek/Norse and roman myths and legends, this book is full of action, drama and loss, I actually felt sorry for Loki throughout, even though he is the Norse god of mischief

  • Richard Valle

    Good twist on the Loki/Thor stories. I'd probably normally give it 3 stars but it gets an extra because it was free. :)
