Here’s my current reading! I didn’t know, when I first began reading “Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer”, that I would enjoy the Norse Mythology that much.
I already knew (and really enjoy) the Greek one, so I knew I would have a great time with Percy Jackson, but this trilogy was a true discovery, a pleasant one indeed!
I love the way Magnus acts and all the details. Some words are really hard to pronounce (and I mean REAL hard) I have found myself in some occasions trying to pronounce them out-laud. And let me tell you, that’s a real show right there!!
I love all the characters so far. I’m at the moment half way through “The Hammer of Thor”, so my review it’s mostly of the first book.
I think Magnus is hilarious, and I love Sam’s attitude and how focused and perseverate she is with her goals. Hearth and Blitz make the perfect squad, floor nineteen are squad material too (even tho you see more of Blitz and Hearth). The Gods are nor better that the Greek ones in the Percy Jackson universe tho, too little helpful, let me tell ya.
I love the references to modern culture and the titles to every chapter, and the unexpected burns towards Percy even tho you don’t read about him (at least in this first book).
I recommend this trilogy to anyone who likes fantasy and mythology, and likes to have a great time (and even likes to laugh out laud from time to time)
