Matt Thorsen grew up in Blackwell, South Dakota knowing the stories his family had passed down: every Norse myth, every saga, every god like it was family history. Because the Thorsens are direct descendants of Thor. Like their ancestor, every Thorsen is charged with keeping order, especially in regard to the descendents of the trickster god, Loki. And quite a few of his descendents live in Blackwell, too, including Matt's classmates: Fen and Laurie Brekke. For the most part, their lives aren't too different from those of normal kids, aside from a few minor powers. But everything changes when the rune readers tell of the impending Ragnarok--also known as the apocalypse. According to legend, in the time of Ragnarok, the gods must fight the monsters to stop the end of the world. But the gods are dead, leaving their human descendents to fight on their behalf. And Thor's Champion is Matt. He has a little trouble with the 'slay the giant serpent and save the world' idea, but he's not the only one whose world will be turned upside down, because representatives of each of the major gods--kids, like Matt, Fen, and Laurie--have their roles to play in the final fight as well, and it's up to Matt to find them and put together an unstoppable team against the end of the world.

Good: The fate of the world rests on the shoulders of empowered kids; Lots of action; Three characters who take turns narrating from their different perspectives; One of them is a girl; They all have flaws and shades of gray that make them each relatable in different ways; Strong, appealing mythology.
---
Less good: Not quite enough complexity in tone and characters--came across a bit too simplistic and condescending toward kids; Adults were a bit too absent, uninterested, and worthless; A bit too much focus on action that detracted from character development and believability.
---
In sum: Fun and interesting, but didn't quite captivate me or sweep me off my feet.
