Waiting on Wednesday: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

The Sword of Summer
(Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1)
Publication Date: October 6, 2015
Hardcover, 528 pages, Disney-Hyperion
Genres: YA/Middle Grade, Paranormal

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 . . .

My Thoughts

I still haven’t read The Blood of Olympus yet. Or The Kane Chronicles, but this book just looks so cool. I’m excited.
