Title: “The Sword of Summer” (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard)
Author: Rick Riordan
Pages: 528
Release date: October 6th 2015

What’s happening?

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 a man he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. The man 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 . . .

Why?

WHY? Seriously? I just remembered the way I stuffed myself with Percy-Jackson-Books until I realised there are no more books to come (Harry-Potter-Revival). The Kane-Chronicles were good as well but I’ve only read the first two books (Books in Germany are expensive and I couldn’t bring myself to buy them all.)
Nevermind, I’m SO excited for this series, my first fantasy books were all about the nordic mythology – this better be good, Riordan!


….and as many realised earlier on Goodreads – there will be Loki in it (hopefully! I mean, come on. We love the Avengers (I should correct myself: We love Tom Hiddleston as Loki and if that one is half as badass as Tom’s Loki, thank God! If not .. okay. I’ll ly awake at night and cry myself to sleep).

What are your thought’s? What did you pick for your WoW?
