Monsters by C. Gockel

After being attacked by a serial killer, saved by Loki — so-called God of Mischief, Lies and Chaos — dragged to Alfheim, losing every cent in her bank account, and caring for her grandmother, Amy Lewis has lost her scholarship to veterinary school. But it’s alright. She has a plan. If she manages to keep her day job as a receptionist, and her night job as a vet tech, she may be able to get her scholarship reinstated and save enough money for the dreaded ‘miscellaneous fees.’
Too bad her day boss is unbearable...
Agent Steve Rogers has political aspirations, but when a suitcase nuke turns out to be something much worse and so-called Norse gods start showing up in his life, he has a priority shift.
Meanwhile, Loki’s priorities and plans haven’t changed at all. He wants Asgard to burn. Of course, earthly pleasures can be so distracting.
These three disparate characters have little in common, but they’ll have to join forces to save earth from trolls, wyrms, frost giant invasions, and an old evil growing beneath Chicago’s streets.
In this second volume of “I Bring the Fire,” chaos comes to our world and decides to stay. The nine realms will never be the same.
From Goodreads.

Book 1 in this series had a very abrupt ending and I knew I wanted to read the second. Unfortunately it often takes me a long time to get to the next in the series, this time over a year. This meant I actually went back and read the last chapter in the first book just to remind myself of the story.
In this second book Loki is trying to free Cera, an entity, that has been captured on earth by the help of Odin. Amy is mad at Loki but of course also in love with him. This book introduce Steve, an agent, who is part of the team looking after the entity. I now need to read the third book.
