The Sword of Summer - 6th October 2015
Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1
Published by: Puffin
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's never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous.
His uncle 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...
Now I'm sure that a lot of people are anticipating the release of this book and seeing as that I am obsessed over everything Rick Riordan writes, I am eagerly awaiting his newest release, Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer, the first book in a Norse Mythology series.
I loved his Percy Jackson series, was a huge fan of the spin off series (Heroes of Olympus) and really enjoy his eygyptian mythology series ( The Kane Chronicles).
Now I'm pretty certain it will be just as witty and action packed as all of his other books, and I cannot wait to be getting my hands on it and cracking into its contents.
So there is absolutely no doubt, that I am hugely anticipating Rick Riordan's newest story, Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer, which is released in 24 Hours, on the 6th October!
