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 an uncle he barely knows—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. Uncle Randolph 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 . . .

  • Best. Book. Ever.

    By Mechanictitan
    Look, I'm very picky when it comes to books but this is the best book by far I have read, well, tied with the Percy Jackson series. If you are a fan of Rick Riordan and love action, mythology, and a little bit of comedy than this is the perfect book for you. I have read many, many books of Rick and this book is at the top of the chart along with Percy Jackson and the trials of Apollo. I really recommend this book to people who love a action packed adventure with a little bit of humor. :)

    Absolutely astonishing! Rick Riordan creates another book that blows all others out of the water!!!🤘😆👍
  • Norse mythology with a twist....political correctness.

    Rick Riordan panders to the PC crowd in his latest book. A book that has the ease of Riordans writing with a strong under current of everything the PC culture is trying to cram down our throats but in a format that your children can digest and have worm its way into their impressionable little minds. I read all of the books before I give them to my grandchildren and after how much my grandchildren and myself enjoyed the other series I am sad to say that this one is not making it to the bookshelves of any of my grandchildren.
  • Epic book
