Magnus Chase and the gods of Asgard

Book 1 The swords of summer

By Rick Riordan

ISBN 9781423160915

I am seriously excited about this one. I love Percy Jackson and just know that I am going to love Magnus Chase too.  There is room in my heart after all, for another hero.

“Magnus Chase has always been a loner, a troubled kid. Since the death of his mother, he’s lived on the streets of Boston, watching out for himself and surviving by his wits.

One day, he’s tracked down by an uncle he barely knows, who tells him an impossible secret: Magnus’ father was a Norse god.

After centuries apart, the Nine Worlds of Viking myth are growing closer together. The Lords of Asgard stir. Forces of evil muster for Ragnarok, and Magnus may be the only person who can prevent doomsday: by finding a weapon that has been lost since the dawn of time.

Before Magnus can even process this information, a fiery attack forces him to make a fatal choice.

Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die…”

Yes I have borrowed the blurb because I am too excited to create my own and cannot wait for the October release.

In the mean time why not have some fun reminding yourself all about  Percy Jackson
