"The Sword Of Summer" by Rick Riordan

Rating: Excellent! (5)

The Sword Of Summer  by  Rick Riordan

If you are familiar with Rick Riordan's worlds, filled with both mythological and modern-day aspects, you will still be blown away by Magnus Chase. Homeless Magnus Chase struggles to survive on the streets of Boston, but when he learns of an impending Doomsday and the Norse gods start to interfere with his life, things get a lot tougher. With a sarcastic narrator, quirky and diverse side characters, rich worldbuilding, a surplus of courage and high-stakes, and plenty of humor, "The Sword of Summer" sets itself apart from Riordan's other novels. Darker than Riordan's past works but still plenty cutesy, this book begins what could be an amazing series.
