Magnus Chase and The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan review!
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 . . .
Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer, was an exhilarating, humous and entertaining read. Rick Riodan never fails to create his funny lines with his also very serious story lines.
The main character Magnus was well portrayed, Rick’s writing of character standards was not let down and I was very much pleased with all the characters in this book.
Rick didn’t fail to please me with his writing. As I expected and went in with very high expectations of Rick’s previous books, I was not disappointed!!
Overall this book was very fast paced, funny and entertaining. It made you cry and laugh all in the one book and really made you appreciate the King of mythology Rick Riordan even more. Don’t even get me started on Rick’s chapter names because they were just so Rick like and just plain awesome. I would totally recommend this book to anyone and everyone! especially those that loved Rick’s other books and mythology!
Star Rating: 6/5 stars for sure!!!
