On the hero side, the Warriors three — Fandril, Hogun and Volstagg — were all made up; on the villains side, the Enchatress, Skurge, Malekith the Accursed the villain of Thor: The Dark World , the Destroyer the semi-sentient anthropomorphic weapon of the first movie , Kurse, and more.
They were powerful and wise; Odin came to them to learn more about Ragnorak, and while he was there was legitimately worried for his safety should they turn on it. He was Odinspit.
In the myth, pretty much everybody dies when Ragnorak begins — the Frost Giants, the Fire Giants led by Surtur , and the dead led by Loki will all attack Asgard, and all the elves and dwarves and humans of the other realms will join in the battle. Odin gets eaten by the great wolf Fenrir, Thor dies defeating the Midgard Serpent, Loki and Heimdall kill each other, and eventually Surtur will set the whole damn universe on fire. And this isn't even count the many times Asgard was decimated our outright destroyed through non-Ragnorak-related means.

Imagine if your parents called you Owl? Imagine after that your favourite animal is an Owl, and you love the winter and feel draw to it like a magnet. Owl mum is a artist woman who is always away with the fairies and lives in a d Thank you NetGalley and A.
Owl mum is a artist woman who is always away with the fairies and lives in a different world to everyone else. So far away from everyone else that she decides to call her only daughter Owl. Owl is a teenage girl trying to get answers about who she is and who her dad is. All her mum does is tell her stories and skirt around the subject. Owl is fed up with her mum not telling her the truth and as strange events start to happen to her she is even more determined then ever to find out who he is. When her mum reveals that he is in fact Jack Frost events start happening really fast as Owl try's to come to terms with the new changes in her body and to find her father to get answers to question that her mum can't answer.
A new boy has arrived at Owls school and he is very interested in Owl and seems to know all about her and her special powers. Owls best friend needs her more than ever as her parents are going through a Devore and she feels stuck in the middle of it all. Throwing herself into Owl's dramas seems a good idea and at least distracts her from everything else that is going on. Who is Owls father?

What are these magical powers she seems to have gained? Are they linked to her dad? What will happen when owl enters the magical world of winter for the first time? A glittering debut story filled with friendship, family, finding out who you are, adventure and magic.
A very sweet read. I did find it a tad annoying that the pages didn't seem to fit my kindle properly when it was a kindle book. The lines seemed jumbled and a little all over the place. I didn't like how when it started telling the story bits in the frost world that it would stop mid sentence and that there was a picture page between the writing pages where it shouldn't be and some of the spelling punctuation needs looking at. But I did quite like this story. I liked the characters and I think it's a good start to what feels like to me could be a promising series of books.
Thank you again for letting me read this. Thirteen-year-old Owl has an artistic mother, that's why she has a strange first name. Her mother often tells her stories about frosted faraway places filled with magic, but she doesn't tell Owl what she wants to know the most, who her father is. Owl can talk about her problems with her best friend, but she keeps feeling alone. Drawing owls help her to feel a bit of comfort, but she misses having a father. When frost starts to appear on Owl's skin Owl doesn't know what's happening to her. As the Thirteen-year-old Owl has an artistic mother, that's why she has a strange first name.
As the issue doesn't go away Owl has to ask herself if this strange ability is linked to her father. Who is he and how can she get her mother to talk about him? Is the world her mother has been describing for years actually real?

What will happen when Owl starts believing these strange stories, will she be able to step into the world of winter and find out who she is? A Girl Called Owl is a beautiful story about a girl who wants to get to know her father. Owl misses part of her ancestry and wants to know where she comes from, which is a great theme for a story. Amy Wilson combines this with a gorgeous magical world filled with frost and snow, which works very well. Owl is kindhearted and artistic. She's a talented girl, but she's also feeling alone. She desperately wants to prove herself, which keeps getting her in trouble.
Step by step she'll learn, but everything has a price. Owl has a lot of growing up to do and her journey is difficult, but special.
The Yellow Fairy Book: The Story of King Frost
I couldn't wait to discover where her adventures would lead and loved the direction Amy Wilson has chosen for Owl's story. A Girl Called Owl is filled with gorgeous descriptions of snow and ice. I love a good winter story and Amy Wilson makes her world come to life incredibly well.
I liked the name she's chosen for her main character, how she combines myths with reality and the many surprising twists and turns that are making her story interesting. I also enjoyed reading about Owl's close friendships and admire the way Amy Wilson writes about the value of family. Owl's adventure is gripping, spellbinding and moving at the same time. I really loved this amazing story. Pan Macmillan were so generous in allowing me a copy of this book to read, and after reading and adoring 'Heartless' I wanted to read another of theirs that was a little more themed around Winter.
This is of course Amy Wilson's debut, and a middle-grade book that is aimed at an audience younger than myself. Still, I was intrigued by the inclusion of the famous figure Jack Frost and some other folklore characters, not to mention the magical synopsis and pretty cover. It seemed like the perfect ch Pan Macmillan were so generous in allowing me a copy of this book to read, and after reading and adoring 'Heartless' I wanted to read another of theirs that was a little more themed around Winter. It seemed like the perfect choice! And honestly? I thought this book was okay.
It had a lot of potential with some interesting character profiles and very intriguing idea on how folkloric figures could be working behind the scenes to create our seasons. There were some great 'moments' in this book. Sadly, those 'moments' were not enough to hold it together and it never really felt more than 'okay' for me.
The writing was pretty good and it had the makings of a solid, fun story, but it flitted from one thing to another without allowing me to become emotionally invested in what was going on. I didn't get enough of anything. Owl as an MC was bold but flighty. Her mood swings confused me and her reasoning didn't make sense.
Sadly, like is all I'll ever do for this book. Unresolved and unnecessary plot-lines such as Mallory's got in the way, Owl was prone to moments of strength, but also became irritating when she wasn't seeing her own ignorance.
