Review:

PRAISE FOR THE SWORD OF SUMMER

"The Sword of Summer combines the glory of Norse myth with the joy of Rick Riordan's effervescent world-building. One of Riordan's funniest books-everything from the chapter titles to the wry humor of Magnus Chase will have you chuckling, even as the plot races along at breakneck speed. Check me in to Hotel Valhalla, please. I'll be staying."―New York Times #1 best-selling author Cassandra Clare

PRAISE FOR THE TITAN'S CURSE

"All in all, a winner of Olympic proportions."―School Library Journal

PRAISE FOR THE SON OF NEPTUNE

"Should pacing and wit continue unabated into the third volume, whose foretold European setting promises further freshness, fans will eagerly await numbers four and five."―Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE MARK OF ATHENA

"With a true storyteller's sense of pacing, Riordan creates another compelling adventure, right down to the cliff-hanger at the end. Stay tuned for volume four."―Booklist

PRAISE FOR THE LIGHTNING THIEF

"Perfectly paced, with electrifying moments chasing each other like heartbeats."―New York Times Book Review

PRAISE FOR THE HOUSE OF HADES

"In this adventure, victories are hard-won and the essence of bravery nuanced, making the journey as satisfying as it is entertaining."―Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE HOUSE OF HADES

"Adventure fans will relish the action as their heroes confront formidable foes, while readers who have come to love the characters will enjoy following the different individuals as they take the stage in scenes that are usually dramatic, often witty, and occasionally surprising. A satisfying, penultimate entry in the Heroes of Olympus series." ―Booklist Online

PRAISE FOR THE SEA OF MONSTERS

* "In a feat worthy of his heroic subjects, Riordan crafts a sequel stronger than his compelling debut."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

PRAISE FOR THE LAST OLYMPIAN

"Riordan masterfully orchestrates the huge cast of characters and manages a coherent, powerful tale at once exciting, philosophical and tear-jerking. The bestselling series' legions of fans will cheer their heroes on and rejoice in such a compelling conclusion to the saga."―Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

PRAISE FOR PERCY JACKSON'S GREEK GODS

"The novel's winning combination of high-voltage adventure and crackling wit is balanced with scenes in which human needs, fears, and ethical choices take center stage."―Booklist (starred review)

PRAISE FOR PERCY JACKSON'S GREEK GODS

"The clash of modern and classical worlds is both exciting and entertaining."―The New York Times Book Review

PRAISE FOR THE SWORD OF SUMMER

"Rick Riordan's new series is simply brilliant-maybe his best yet! I thought I knew Norse mythology, but now that I've read the gripping and hilarious Sword of Summer, I'll never see Thor the same way again. Get ready to stay up all night reading!"―New York Times #1 best-selling author Harlan Coben

PRAISE FOR THE SWORD OF SUMMER

"The Sword of Summer is a propulsive, kinetic, witty rebooting of Norse mythology with all the charm of the Percy Jackson novels. Instantly likeable heroes! Insane action! Cool villains! A twisting, turning, always exciting story! Rick Riordan does it again, even better."―New York Times best-selling author Michael Grant

Book Description Penguin UK, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 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 . . . Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # MM-40030980
