Waiting on Wednesday: Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan




Here's the deal: I know that this will probably not live up to Percy Jackson and I know that it's weird that he redoes the whole thing just with Norse gods again. But listen, I'm OBSESSED with mythology. 

Since YA authors are all over the Greeks, I haven't had the chance to dive into Norse mythology in fiction nearly as much as I would have liked to and THIS IS MY CHANCE. It's a guilty pleasure and yeah, I know that I'm not necessarily in the target audience. Shh.

Release Date: October 6th 2015 


Synopsis:

"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 . . "
