Overview

After being attacked by a serial killer, saved by Loki — so-called God of Mischief, Lies and Chaos — dragged to Alfheim, losing every cent in her bank account, and caring for her grandmother, Amy Lewis has lost her scholarship to veterinary school. But it’s alright. She has a plan. If she manages to keep her day job as a receptionist, and her night job as a vet tech, she may be able to get her scholarship reinstated and save enough money for the dreaded ‘miscellaneous fees.’

Too bad her day boss is unbearable...

Agent Steve Rogers has political aspirations, but when a suitcase nuke turns out to be something much worse and so-called Norse gods start showing up in his life, he has a priority shift.

Meanwhile, Loki’s priorities and plans haven’t changed at all. He wants Asgard to burn. Of course, earthly pleasures can be so distracting.

These three disparate characters have little in common, but they’ll have to join forces to save earth from trolls, wyrms, frost giant invasions, and an old evil growing beneath Chicago’s streets.

In this second volume of “I Bring the Fire,” chaos comes to our world and decides to stay. The nine realms will never be the same.

Meet the Author

C. Gockel 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 smut. 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.

At the moment Ms. Gockel is putting the finishing touches on "I Bring the Fire Part III: Chaos".

Ms. Gockel loves to hear from readers. She can be reached by email at: cgockel.publishing@gmail.com

    Love the story but hate ransoming the story one serial episode at a time

    I wish some one had said these serialized "books" were mostly short novella length chunks and that I'd spend more for the story than you normally would. The feeling that I was ransoming bits of the story took away from what is actually an intelligent and unique take on these mythic figures. The character of Loke is fantastic

    picking up soon after Loki leaves us in part 1, he comes back to

    picking up soon after Loki leaves us in part 1, he comes back to more mayhem in this humorous and action packed sequel. The God of Tricks continues to prove he can offer treats as well in that most of the chaos isn't from his tamperings but a skein of larger proportions that everyone, Loki included, is caught up in. 




    This story draws heavily on true Norse mythology, not Stan Lee's version (which is cool too). You'll find yourself rooting for Loki. He's had some truly hard times, and he shows amazing humanity both in the mythological back stories and here on Midgard. 




    Similar to mythological writing, this story doesn't flow with lengthy descriptions and verbose dialog. Instead, the sentences come rapid fire staccato. Once you settle into the structure, your brain fills in the decorative bits while you mesh with the characters. 




    You'll also learn much about Norse mythology along the way. The research is impeccable and the dedication the author has to this group of Gods shines through on every page.

    This book was a great sequel to "I Bring the Fire: Part I W

    This book was a great sequel to "I Bring the Fire: Part I Wolves", although my one complaint would be that I'm not sure it stands on its own (if you haven't read the first book). However, book one is free, so it's not much of a hindrance and well worth the read!

    Having fallen for the characters in book I, we pick up with Amy at a new job, recovering from her previous encounter with Loki. Meanwhile , Loki is off doing his own thing before he comes back to thank Amy for her previous "help." Through memories we learn of Loki's past and his motivations, his feelings about Earth and Asgard society, and begin to get a more concrete idea of what's at stake - both for the characters and the entire nine realms. A great sequel that myth buffs will be sure to love!

    No format errors noted.

    Good read. Interesting story; engaging characters; pacing has improved. But over-use of the word "smirk" detracted from my enjoyment of the book.
