It's quite easy to describe the contents of Mike Vasich's new Loki: Nine Naughty Tales of the Trickster, which is why today's review isn't very long; it's simply a series of stories about the notorious troublemaker of Scandinavian mythology, but with the dialogue updated to the style of Joss Whedon. As such, then, this is really quite a treat if you're able to get into the spirit of it all, and to understand that you're meant to put tongue firmly in cheek as you read this collection of delightfully dirty and funny stories. You already know if you're the kind of person who would enjoy a book like this; and if you are, I strongly recommend picking it up with no delay.

Out of 10: 8.6
