Claire (lindlec) Hi

I recently read a review of a new ya novel based on Hel the daughter of Loki. She is half girl and half corpse from the waist down. I believe the review was in the U.K. Daily Mail but I cannot find any reference to it anywhere.

Can anyone help?

Thanks
Claire

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series by Rick Riordan for Shelley's suggestion - https://www.goodreads.com/series/8221...

No, unfortunately it is not this series. I think lokis daughter is the main protagonist.

Claire (lindlec) I think the book is a recent release as it was a recent book review. It's not Runelights as this is a few years old.

They both sound like great books though

I found it via this list: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/6...
