Loki is portrayed as a whiny bastard.

Uff. Yeah, I'll be avoiding that one, then.

I really liked Joanna M Harris' first two books, Runemark and Runelight, but not the Gospel of Loki.

Yeah, "
Gospel of Loki"
's portrayal of Loki and Sigyn was terrible.

This book, Forgotten Legends, is actually about Sigyn. I love it! In fact, I published it-- I'm the acquisitions editor at its publisher.

I loved "
Liesmith"
. It's a mix of adorable queer romance and horror and action.

I liked The Gospel of Loki, but it's portrayal of him (especially where Sigyn was concerned) didn't settle well with me.

Another book series that has Loki as a character (beginning in book 5 or 6, I believe) is The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne. I love this series, but I'm not a fan of how it's been portraying Loki.

I like The Worlds According to Loki by Mike Kassel. But my enjoyment is influenced by the presence of real people I know in the frame story. I wrote a review of it.

I can't remember if it's been mentioned in this thread, but I'm currently reading Odd And The Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman. It's a kids' book, and although there are a few minor mistakes regarding Loki (e.g. he's referred to as a frost giant), he's portrayed very positively and his lines are hilarious. (He is in fox form, due to a curse, for most of the book, though. There's also Odin and Thor, in eagle and bear form, respectively.)

Foslan, get yourself a better copy editor :/ ).  Even though it's fiction, I can totally imagine Loki doing some of the stuff described in there >
Very Happy

(edit b/c i dunno the policy on double-posting) OKAY SO uh I just got past a certain point in the book (minor spoilers, it's just after Loki finishes telling his point of view of the story of Baldur to the other Aesir) and Let Me Tell You A Thing, I don't think I've cried for so long* over a book since reading Where The Red Fern Grows like fifteen years ago.

*I am not kidding when I say it was basically non-stop for literally almost an hour after putting the book down. :/

Double posting is fine for now. Until it presents a problem I don't see why not. I think I set a flood limit of five or ten seconds
