Magic, Myth, and Marvel
Nothing is more fun than re-visiting famous figures of myth and legend like Norse god Loki or the terrifying Dracula. In Mackenzi Lee's Loki: Where Mischief Lies, Thor's little brother and the Marvel villain we hate to love, takes a starring role in this origin story where heroism isn't as black and white as we'd like to believe. The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett introduces Theodora, a young woman determined to save her father from the brutal and notorious Vlad the Impaler.
