About this ebook

Amy Lewis is on her way to her grandma's house. She's being chased by a very bad wolf.

Galaxies away Loki, Norse God of Mischief and Chaos, is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover and with no idea what he's done wrong--this time anyway. He does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he's forgotten...

Amy's and Loki's fates are about to collide. They'll have to work together to defeat gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors. If Loki can remember what he's forgotten, and Amy can convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets, Earthly pleasures, or three day benders, they just might pull it off...

I Bring the Fire is for everyone who suspects chaos and mischief makers might have their own redeeming qualities, and anyone who just wants a good fantasy romp through modern Earth, ancient Asgard, and beyond! Download the first installment of this USA Today Bestselling series today.

What the Critics are Saying:

"I found this story to be an amazingly accurate retelling of the NorseMyths. Excellent, highly recommended, two thumbs on fire."

- Loki, Norse God of Mischief and Chaos (and God of Fire)

"Eight hooves up. As one of Loki's children, I approve."

- Sleipnir, eight-legged horse child of Loki

"This is not an accurate representation of the Norse Pantheon. Pure fantasy, a fairy tale, don't believe a word of it."

- Odin, All Father, leader of the Norse Gods

"I am supposed to be the hero in Norse Mythology!"

- Thor, Norse God of Thunder

The author's use of 3rd person omniscient POV and present tense gives a stilted, remote feeling. It's like watching sports with an intrusive narrator. The author's tendency to give equal weight to trivial or important details eliminates pacing. A potentially engrossing plot was hamstrung and hobbled by these choices.

Interesting fantasy Amy is just a normal person who wants to be a vet and that was when she meets Loki, the trickster Norse God. Loki has been imagined a little differently in the story and how he works with Amy has been brought well. Amy’s grandmother Beatrice is the more scary one with her sometimes cringe-worthy dialogues. But overall the way the story was written and the characterization was enjoyable. Liked it.

I will confess upfront that I know almost nothing about Norse mythology, so I have no idea if the author strayed from accepted canon or not. Having said that, I really enjoyed this book. It was fun, Loki was a much more sympathetic character than I was expecting, and the way the story unfolded felt very natural. It left me with questions, as all multi-part stories do, but I wasn't left so high and dry that nothing was resolved. I would recommend this book to other people.

About the author

Ms. Gockel has a healthy respect for Chaos; she has children. In this first free ebook of the I Bring the Fire series and its sequels she doesn't want to redeem Loki, she wants to redeem Chaos itself. Norse mythology and fantasy in contemporary times and urban settings are just convenient fun ways to do it.

She got her start writing fanfiction, and she is not ashamed! Much. She received emails, messages and reviews from her fans telling her she should 'do this professionally'. She didn't; because she is a coward and life as a digital designer, copywriter and coder is more dependable. But in the end, her husband's nagging wore her down: "You could be the next '50 Shades of Gray' and I could retire!" Unfortunately, the author isn't much for writing erotica, fantasy and science fiction with a splash of romance and humor are where her heart lies. She is sad about this; she'd love for her husband to be able to retire and just work for her so she could nag him.

Like any good drug dealer, Ms. Gockel likes to offer free samples. That is why the first in her fantasy series is free. However, unlike crack dealers, she offers other ways to get subsequent hits at no or low cost. Contact her, she loves to hear from readers.

She can be reached by email at: cgockel -dot- publishing -at- gmail -dot- com

At the moment, Ms. Gockel is working on the final book of the I Bring the Fire series.
