  1. Really really enjoyed this one I m finding the Norse Mythology which I ve never really learned about FACINATING plus it s full of great diverse characters Here s my full booktalk youtube watch v Wrd1 Let s discuss together

  2. 2 1 2 stars.Middle grade it may be, but I really enjoyed The Lightning Thief I thought it was creative, fast paced, entertaining and with a great message for all kids who feel a little on the outside sometimes As with Harry Potter, it takes a normal, seemingly unremarkable kid and propels him into a world where he s a hero And it s just fun The Sword of Summer, though, doesn t feel like anything new Some people will shriek No at this, but I really think it s time for Mr Riordan to move on from t [...]

  3. I finally read this book, after my pre review got so disturbingly popular I m not impressed It was amusing, but I didn t particularly care about the characters, and I was bored through most of its 500 pages Maybe the Percy Jackson concept is something that only works once, and now it s just being overused It doesn t help that this book is full of Percy Jackson references that seem, well, masturbatory And pop culture references that will look dated in less than 5 years Count me out for the rest o [...]

  4. This was so much fun I m glad this series is in 1st person because Magnus is HILARIOUS and his narration had me laughing throughout I love the take on Norse mythology, the new cast of characters is fantastic, and I was pleasantly surprised by the direction the story went a few times Definitely my new favorite first book in a Riordan series I can t wait to continue the adventure

  5. I ll give Riordan credit for his mythological research, but his writing and characterizations need a lot of work still Not only does Magnus have the exact same voice and personality as Percy Jackson and Jason Grace, but they all have a weird combination of forced snark and dad jokes that makes them sound cartoonish than believable and you need something to ground characters in reality when you have all this magical stuff happening While it s great that he s trying to include diversity with his [...]

  6. I really enjoyed this read I ve been wanting to read Magnus Chase for such a long time and I was definitely satisfied I really loved all of the characters, the world building, and all of the different adventures I can t wait to read of this series in the future.

  8. I enjoyed this book a great deal I m wanting to get into Norse Mythology and even though this was a funny take on those things I still enjoyed it One star off for making my wolves the bad guys in a book once again And no, I need no commentary on that I loved Magnus friends, well I loved him too There is a lot of snark and funny moments in the book And I figured that going into this I WILL be reading as many books as I can of Vikings etc that are history based Magnus has no idea who his father [...]

  9. OMG, I loved so much the last chapter Of course Magnus would lose that bet He needs at least 9 books to surpass Annabeth, hahaha.

  10. Guess who s a very grumpy camper points to self In my own little world, I ve always told myself that Rick Riordan can do no wrong Okay, fine, I sort of hated The Blood of Olympus, but The Sword of Summer was supposed to be a fresh start it was supposed to be the book that would put Riordan back up on my mental pedestal.Well, I ve been fucking let down, Rick I m sorry and sad to have said that, but it s true This book was just nowhere near the level of epicness I was expecting Maybe it s because, [...]

  11. YESSSHELL YEAH I NEED SOME LOKI ACTION yes, Loki, you are fabulous But wait this comes out in 2015 I m sorry, Loki spaz Honestly, the Avengers doesn t quite portray the Norse Gods as they were in the myths they happened to have sleep with a lot people and get drunk a lot , but that s beside the point I think You may be surprised to know that my weirdness not only encompaces Loki gifs,but extends to Norse Gods as well Upon learning that Rick would be writing this series, I actually went on and p [...]

  12. Short Review I went into this with kinda mixed expectations it sounds like Percy Jackson 2.0 and well it kind of is , plus a bunch of my friends were disappointed by it But honestly, it was better than I expected It s no PJO, but I still really enjoyed it Some thoughts I actually don t know that much about Norse mythology, so it was a fun way to learn a bit about it although I m sure Rick Riordan took some liberties and glossed over some things P I LOVE SAM, OH MY GOD Why wasn t she the main cha [...]

  13. That was a seriously solid first book to this series I love so many things about this book the characters, the REPRESENTATION so many props , the world building, the plot, just everything It took a little bit to get going and moving, but beyond that was everything I ever want from a Riordan book humorous, heart felt, and fun I can t wait for later books and I really hope we are going to get into of the 9 realms because YES.

  14. 4.25 stars Randolph shook his head in disgust Those moviesridiculously inaccurate The real gods of Asgard Thor, Loki, Odin, and the rest are much powerful, much terrifying than anything Hollywood could concoct Butey re myths They re not real Randolph gave me a sort of pitying look Myths are simply stories about truths we ve forgotten Yes, it s time for another drinking game The rules are simple Each time something similar to Percy Jackson shows up and or happens, take a shot Try not to die of [...]

  15. Either my sense of fun and humour has wilted into nothingness or Rick Riordan has started to bore me with his repeating usage of storylines and familiar jokes.I opt for the latter.I like to think that I have a good sense of humour I like to laugh at every single tiny jokes and it takes a lot to snuff out that side of me Okay fine, to its creditMagnus Chase and The Sword of Summer is funny it certainly does has its stupid, ri donkey lous moments , but the humour instilled here did not succeed in [...]

  16. I knew he was planning on making a Norse series but here it is Or, rather, the vague idea roaming around on that sometime in 2015 there might be a book about Norse mythology by Riordan Or maybe in a few years after that.Well, Just hope it s like the Percy Jackson than the Kane Chronicles But I really hope that Loki, if he is brought up and we all know he will be, is not a generic villain Please He and Thor BETTER NOT be teenagers Hell, no I don t need drooling over Loki and Thor like Sadie did [...]

  17. That was HILARIOUS Like incredibly, marvellously FUNNY I mean, it s Rick Riordan, right So you expect thatbut I think this is one of his most goldenest books for humour ever although granted I haven t read The Kane Chronicles yet, so we ll see how they match up Basically I m endlessly pleased with this hilarious novel of Magnus Chase It felt different from Percy Jackson, but still had the same vibe and hilarity and also ANNABETH HAS A CAMEO Magnus Chase is Annabeth s cousin She hasn t got a big [...]

  18. Rick can t do wrong Another adventure of epic proportions lead by the incredibly sarcastic Magnus is not just another Percy Jackson, but a distinctive and a little bit grown up journey featuring dwarves, elves, Valkyries and of course, the master of mischief Loki and his many godly opponents Hilariously written with a fast paced plot and diverse and powerful characters Addictive Advanced reading copy provided by Penguin

  19. Reading Percy Jackson now, making me feel I was right here Percy Jackson better Urban Fantasy, this one a bit higher or wilder.A Breakneck, Jam Packed Roller Coaster of an Adventure I Know It s Jo s Blurb for House of Secrets, but sorry, Can t help but use it here too The All The Ancient Gods Geek, Rick Riordan takes us in a new Adventure Up and Down the Tree of Laeradr,Worlds of Asgard s Gods Viking Myths.With a Variety of resourceful charactersOh and don t forget the Hotel Valhalla, such a lov [...]

  20. jam it did take a bit for me to actually get into the story and i don t think anyone can say that riordan s novels aren t at least a little formulaic, but the cast of characters is refreshing and the plot is non stop sings hamilton in my head i think the book gets better the you read and by the end, i was sad to see it was over also, i cried at the last handful of chapters i m a huge mess sorry.

  23.

  24. My name is Magnus Chase I m sixteen years old This is the story of how my life went downhill after I got myself killed So I think The Sword of Summer is the revised edition of Percy Jackson Everything feels the same way, Magnus reminds me of Percy and Valhara as Half blood camp I couldn t stop comparing these two books while I was reading though, it gave me my first impression when I first read Percy Jackson It s hilarious, delightful and engaging a lot I can t peel my eyes of the book Yes this [...]

  25. I gave up at the point where the homeless kids shot some giant fire destruction daemon type thing with a plastic cupid bow and arrow I mean, seriously That actually happened That ruined it for me I m all up for humour in books, but when the humour seeps into what I consider a serious situation of life and death, it becomes a little bit too stupid It just didn t feel real Bare with me a moment here There is a giant fire daemon that has emerged in an otherwise normal world, there s nothing wrong w [...]
