"I Bring the Fire" series, by C. Gockel. Book One: 70 five star reviews, and free today!

Likable, smart, and a bit naive, vet-in-training Amy Lewis is about to have a very close encounter with Loki, the Norse god of mischief, in this first book in C. Gockel's "I Bring the Fire" series. This fresh, delightful novel has over 70 five-star reviews, and is free today!
I Bring the Fire Part I : Wolves (A Loki Story), by C. Gockel

"Loki's abiding motivation is to find out what happened to his sons and rescue them properly this time. Amy would just like to get home to her grandmother Beatrice's house and forget about her near-death at the hands of a serial killer. Feeling grateful to her rescuer (who, amusingly, for a time, calls himself Thor), she takes him home with her. Of course, Loki only bothers to maintain his false identity for a short while, especially after Beatrice, who is savvy about things paranormal, figures out who he is. 

The Loki in this story isn't the psychopath of the recent Marvel-verse movies, but is instead grounded more firmly in traditional folklore. He is, however, probably one of the more approachable versions, because he is, essentially, a father trying to save his sons. Key events from his past are woven nicely into the current storyline, presumably building on the overall plot, both developing the character and grounding him in myth. A fun read that's a hybrid of contemporary (urban) fantasy and more traditional sword and sorcery fare." -- Amazon reviewer

In the middle of America, on Route 44, Amy Lewis has a plan — to get to her grandma’s house in time for dinner. Galaxies away Loki is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover, and with no idea what he’s done wrong — this time anyway. But he does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he’s forgotten...

In this tale that is equal parts “Another Fine Myth,” “American Gods,” and “Once Upon a Time,” a very nice midwestern girl and a jaded, still very mischievous Loki must join forces to outwit gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors. If Loki can remember exactly what he’s forgotten and Amy can convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets, her boobs, or three day benders, they just might pull it off...

This first volume of "I Bring the Fire" is for anyone who suspects chaos and mischief makers might have their own redeeming qualities, and anyone who just wants a good fantasy romp through modern Earth, ancient Asgard, and beyond!

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 working on the next installment of "I Bring the Fire".
