"The Pyramid is baacckk!" Well, actually, it never went away--but it had seemed to be inactive, still sitting in the middle of Chicago but no longer growing and wiping out buildings as it grew. The pyramidal device sent by the Krin to dominate the Earth had suffered a severe setback when the motley crew of ivory-tower academics, paratroopers, and one resourceful maintenanc...more

Product Description

The Pyramid is baacckk! Well, actually, it never went away—but it had seemed to be inactive, still sitting in the middle of Chicago but no longer growing and wiping out buildings as it grew. The Krin device would have been thwarted, if things had been left as they were—but a V.I.P., who knows too many state secrets to be allowed to be missing, was left behind in the world of Greek mythology. So a power-mad Washington bureaucrat has press-ganged several of the survivors of t

This second book in the series is less fun than the first.

First, it involves Norse mythology. I'm not as familiar with this as I am with Greek/Roman mythology, so, once they got past Odin, Thor and Loki, the names just jumbled together. The authors crammed too many characters into the book, and too many of the pantheon of gods sound so similar as to make it difficult to keep them separate.

I loved this one. The only problem I had was I picked it up at random, and didn't realize it was the second book. It took a bit of getting used to because in the beginning I was frustratingly out of the loop, but I really enjoyed it anyway and would definitely pursue the series. Somewhere between a fluff book and a meaty one, I feel like I stumbled on a gem.
Disappointing. Not nearly as good as the first book. Too many Norse god-sized plot holes. Story: 2 stars. Appendix explaining who all the Norse mythological character were: 4 stars.
zweiter Teil, diesmal geht die Reise nordische Sagen (Thor, Loki, Odin, ..). Sehr gut.
I laughed out loud a lot while reading this book. It's silly, fun, and hilarious.
