    The Loki Wolf Arthur G. Slade Red Cedar Nominee 2002-03 Resource Links' Year's Best 2000 The scare is the thing here. On the third night the worst nightmare - the very worst - invaded my dreams. Loping behind me was a gigantic wolf, its jaws snapping together and tearing off bits of my flesh. There was no blood. No pain. But bit by bit he swallowed chunks of my body until nothing of Angela Laxness remained. When Angie dreams about being devoured by a giant wolf, her parents tell her it is only her imagination. But later, while on vacation in Iceland with her grandfather and two cousins, she begins to wonder if the dream wasn't a warning. First, there are strange scratches outside her window. Then she finds out that sheep have recently been disappearing from her uncle's farm. But it isn't until she and her cousins go to the old croft house that they discover the horrifying truth. The Loki Wolf is the third in Arthur Slade's successful Northern Frights series. Draugr (Orca, 1997), shortlisted for the Small Press Book Awards in the US and the Saskatchewan Children's Literature Award, and The Haunting of Drang Island (Orca, 1998) are the first two in the series. All three stories grew out of the author's fascination with Norse mythology.
