Synopsis (Goodreads):
Sigyn is prophesied to be the consort of a king. Instead she marries a fool. Centuries after his chaos destroys their marriage, the fallout begins.
Thoughts on Atomic: I didn't hate this story, but I didn't love it either. Mostly because I kinda couldn't figure out what was going on. Maybe if I'd read other books in the series some of the events would have made more sense but... *shrug* So it goes sometimes, right?

Anyway. After reading the blurbs for some of the other installments in this series, I can't quite figure out if Sigyn is in any of them. Given Loki's bouts of non-remembrance, I'm seriously confused whether they have a thing or not down the line. Because I felt bad for the guy. Seriously bad. He makes himself the joker so he doesn't have to follow Odin's rules, but it's estranged him from his family and from the woman I think he loves.

I dunno. I'm just confused on several levels with this story. Boo.
