Source: Thank you so much to Penguin Random House SA for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review.
Thor's world is about to explode in this exciting junior novel based on the upcoming film Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok. His devious brother, Loki has taken over his home of Asgard, the powerful and ancient Hela has emerged with dark designs, and Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe. To escape and save his home, Thor must compete in an alien contest of champions, fighting his way to freedom against none other than his former ally and fellow Avenger... the Incredible Hulk!

I haven't watched the Thor Ragnarok movie yet, but I love Marvel and Loki is my bae. I was so excited to read this short little book.


It turns out that Let The Battle Begin is quite a significant title. This book covers only half of what I imagine the full story is - as seen in the movie - and it stops just before Thor and co. are returning to Asgard to face Hela. So don't expect to find the whole film transcript in here (which is basically what I expected).

The writing isn't amazing, and I don't think it's meant to be. This is a short and sweet tale, with characters we know and love, and a strong story. Even though this isn't a great price of literature, it serves its purpose: fun, entertaining, and enjoyable. You watched the movie, now enjoy this little story.
It's fun.


Marvel fans will love this short and entertaining story packed with the characters we love and have followed for years. 
It also has some awesome illustrations.
