Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer
Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.
One day, he’s tracked down by a man he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. The man tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god.
The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years.
When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision.
Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .
A great start to the Magnus Chase series. Rick Roirdan has moved from Greek Mythology to Egyptian and now to Norse. By far the best book I've read by Riodarn. It's starts off with Magnus a teenage homless boy dying on a bridge and being taken by a Valkyrie. Full of action and adventure I would recommend this book to anyone. It has great words and is full of excitment.
Overall a great story.
I think this first edition to the Magnus Chase series was brilliant and highly interesting. It is full of action and facts and stories of Norse mythology. I would highly recomend this book to the people who read and loved Percy Jackson and the Kane Chronicles. I recomennd this book to people aged 11-14. I can't wait for more books in this brilliant series.
This book full of adventure, mystery and plot twists. I love how it involves Annabeth and I hope in the next book Percy Jackson is involved! Seriously read it!
