The Sword of Summer Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard

The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard)

Rick Riordan has done it again! I always find myself either laughing till my stomach feels flat or sitting at the edge of my chair, reading the words off the pages like my life depends on it. It's exciting, funny, and adventurous. The myth that Riordan plays in his story is so complete and well thought out. You will not disappoint, in fact, you will be mind blown. It's not the old Percy Jackson myth but more like Thor and Loki kind of myth. However, it is nothing like the Marvel movie, that I guarantee. 

This story is about Magus who dies but is still alive. (stay with me. It will only get more confusing) When a demigod dies, they go to this underworld hotel where they get to train and prepare for a battle between the Nine Worlds. Still wrapping around the fact that Magnus is dead, he has to find the sword that his father, who is a god that he just found out, gave away. He has to find it before evil does and he has to stop them from freeing the Wolf, strongest and terrifying wolf in the Nine Worlds.

From being a homeless kid to fighting three giants and saving Thor; Magnus not only made new loyal friends but also found himself. Even though everyone doubted on him and even a prophecy said he was not meant to be the one to save everyone or the hero of Nine Worlds, Magnus is determined to do what he feels right.

It's an amazing book and despite being on a quest that most likely will kill Magnus, he always finds a way to lighten things up. Riordan has a great sense of humor.

hugs and kisses
