This is a story about Jagger Burns a reluctant hero. He is a young man that finds escape in a world of his own creation. The world that Jagger created had elements of Greek and Norse mythology woven in. This was a great way to learn a little bit about both mythologies and how each has so much in common. The short stories from each were interesting but gruesome and barbaric at the same time as mythology is.
My complaint is that I just couldn’t identify with Jagger, if I could have seen why he was this way or what his motivation was perhaps it would make it easier. It also took him a long time to snap out of his troubles in order to save two worlds! Overall it was an interesting concept. I would definitely say that this is a book for high school aged and older, solidly young adult.
