The next part has some evil guy named El Lobo who wants to take over some country with the Firelord, this story was fine, but felt like more of a distraction so it get the Odin story going, without having Thor intervening just yet. The rest of the arc actually has to do with saving/stopping Odin. Don't want to give anything away, but the more the story goes the more the threat and stakes rise. My biggest complaint, which was nothing story-wise was Tony DeZuniga's inking. Joe Sinnot did wonderful in the first five or six issues. Then tony LeZnuniga takes over and I felt his inking was a lot more sloppy. Still it's fine and it doesn't get to an extreme level of dissapointment. There's some good twists and turns in the rest of the story, and Thor is doing everything he can to save Odin. It ends with a fight and team-up with Ulik who both want a ruby on some dragon, that they both desperately need. In the end Thor makes the decision he believes is right, but obviously at a cost. DeZungia's inking somehow drastically improves in the last two issues which is a plus.
It leaves on a semi-big cliff-hanger and I highly recommend you get the Quest for Odin for it has the stories right after this volume. For Thor fans I recommend this, it didn't change Thor's universe or will be remembered as one of the great's, but almost every issue has some form of action and no issue lacks or is disappointing. It could see a re-read in the future as it was just full of fun. There are some references to past Thor issues, some all the way back to the 150's, the 220's or just right before this book in 240. It's still very-strong stand-alone and you don't need all the past knowledge to fully enjoy this book. The only past event that I wondered how it happened is how Jane and Sif combine into one being. Other than that, it's a fun-ride and for the price it delivers. Just remember you'll want Quest for Odin to continue, which is also a great book. 4.6/5 overall for me!
My favorite quote from the volume: "Thor doth say thee-- NAY! NAY!! A Thousand Times Do I Say Thee-- NAY!"
Although, this book I do say thee Aye! It is very good!
