The first book in the incredible new series from the author of Percy Jackson, the Kane Chronicles and Heroes of Olympus.
My name is Magnus Chase. I'm orphaned and living rough on the streets of Boston. And things are about to get much worse.
My day started out normally enough. I was sleeping under a bridge when some guy kicked me awake and said, 'They're after you.' Next thing I know, I'm reunited with my obnoxious uncle, who casually informs me that my long-lost father is a Norse god.
Nothing normal about that. And it turns out the gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Apparently, if I can't find the sword my father lost two thousand years ago, there will be doom. Doomsday, to be precise.
A fire giant attacking the city?
Immortal warriors hacking each other to pieces?
Unkillable wolves with glowing eyes?
It's all coming up.
But first I'm going to die. This is the story of how my life goes downhill from there...
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Trust Percy Jackson author Rick Riordan to put a fun, modern twist on Norse mythology and lesser-known moments in North American history. His Magnus Chase series-starter introduces us to our 16-year-old homeless protagonist, still reeling from the dramatic death of his mother and trying to make sense of his menacing uncles’ renewed interest in his whereabouts. Packed with adventure and youthful sarcasm, Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer is a rollicking YA fantasy tale that reaffirms our admiration for former schoolteacher Riordan’s storytelling chops.
