Some fun new characters, but old ones turning terrible (I still hate Bodhi)

Well, Steve has lost all good guy points I ever gave him and it’s only Ch1. Truly awful. I hope he dies horribly. Possibly at Loki’s hands, but I’m not picky. Unfortunately it seems he might be set up as the next incarnation of Preservation, so he’ll likely survive. Maybe that’s why he’s sudden extra-evil? Got to start channelling his inner-Odin.
Beatrice has also undergone character assassination this novel, which was very irritating. Is she possessed by Hoenir or just following instructions from him? Either way, it’s making Hoenir seem like the jealous ex who can’t handle the fact that Loki (and/or Bodhi) loves Amy.
Sigyn, Nali and Valli were fun. And Sigyn might just be the most awesome person in the whole series. Nothing fazes her and she’s just generally GOOD. Loves Loki, loves her kids, loves his other kids that aren’t hers, accepts and seems to like Amy.
The cliffhangers have ramped up even further - humans have magic, Odin’s in charge of lots of Earth governments and thinks he has all ‘known’ troublemakers trapped on Jotunheimr to more easily wipe out.
I still miss original Loki. Bodhi aka Loki-light-with-an-extra-side-of-jerk just isn’t cutting it for me. Amy’s flashbacks are the only good Loki :(
