Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

Listen up Percy Jackson fans, Rick Riordan has a new series that fans of the Percy Jackson series are going to love!  Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard is a series that centers around Norse Mythology.  Many of you may be familiar with Greek mythology, but Norse Mythology comes from the Scandinavians (Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Iceland).  Think Vikings.  If you want to learn more about Norse Mythology we have plenty of books here in the Media Center (see below).

This series revolves around a troubled kid named Magnus Chase who has been living on the streets of Boston since his mother's mysterious death.  One day his uncle tracks him down and tells him that he is the son of a Norse god, and all of the Viking myths are true.  The gods of Asgard are preparing for an epic war, and he is the key to the fate of the war.  Now Magnus must search through the Nine Worlds to find a weapon that was lost thousands of years ago.

For those interested in learning more about Norse Mythology checkout the Treasury of Norse Mythology now available in the Media Center!

This new book is intended for those reading the Magnus Chase series, as well as fans of the Avengers: Age of Ultron.  This book features sections dedicated to Thor, Asgard, and the timeless Norse tales.
