"Thor's hammer is missing again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon--the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn't just lost, it has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can't retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately, the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer's return is the gods' worst enemy, Loki--and the price he wants is very high. Magnus Chase, a homeless boy living in Boston, finds out he is the son of a Norse god."--… (més)

I did not like the Magnus Chase series as much as I liked the Percy Jackson one but I liked it far more than the Kane Chronicles. I really enjoyed learning about Norse Mythology because it is not a subject I had much prior knowledge of. I thought the story was great and the mythology blended in really well. I also liked how there was a non-binary character in the story which is rare to see in children's literature. ( )

I really enjoyed The Sword of Summer, Rick Riordan's first installment of the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Series, and there is no sophomore slump in The Hammer of Thor. Magnus Chase is joined once again by the Valkyrie Samirah, the dwarf Blitzen and the elf Hearthstone. The book also introduces a new character, a genderfluid teenager and child of Loki recently arrived to Valhalla as an einherji. Together they are tasked with finding Thor's missing hammer Mjolnir, while Loki attempts to trick and tempt them to his

Their adventures take them to Provincetown, Hearth's unhappy home in Alfheim, a bowling alley for giants, and the bar from Cheers. Like the predecessor the book is full of humorous mythological allusions, impossible predicaments, and a lot of Boston or Boston-ish locations. ( )

***This review and more can be found at my blog Love at First Write***

I am absolute Riordan trash and will always read his books but this one was seriously good. As usual, I pre-ordered Rick’s book and started it the second it arrived! Unfortunately, college life has got me reading and writing so many things that I didn’t get a chance to finish until after my finals ended this Friday (4/28). Just in time for Rick’s next book that comes out May 2nd!

I love this book because I love the quips and sassy banter that fills all of Rick’s novels. They’re even better because I’m actually learning about mythology while reading them! Percy Jackson got me hooked because I absolutely adored and extensively read about Greek mythology as a kid and it was awesome to see the myths in action. Now, the Norse Gods have become just as enjoyable.

What is truly my favorite part of this series that puts it above all of his other books is the diversity of characters represented. Our main character, Magnus Chase, was homeless on the streets of Boston before he was killed and taken to Valhalla to train to fight in Ragnarok. He’s such a caring guy which is such a refresher from the macho hero stereotype going around YA. Hearthstone is a runes magician who’s deaf and all the gang learns ASL to communicate with him. The book doesn’t treat his deafness as a disability which is amazing for kids to be reading, while still acknowledging situations that make Hearth uncomfortable that an able-bodied person wouldn’t think twice about (such as having your hand held or pinned down, hence losing Hearth’s ability to communicate). There are also the very badass children of Loki, Sam and Alex. Alex is the only one that wasn’t in book one, and they’re gender fluid which is why this books gets 5 stars. Rick added a new character and that character expanded the books diversity- thank you Rick! Alex’s presence respectfully teaches Magnus, and therefore kids reading the series, about gender fluid people and representation is so important. So far, I have not read a single book including a gender fluid person and being able to read about a character like some of my friends helps validate their existence. Rick also does an awesome job of Sam being a POC Muslim without using stereotypes. Magnus again respectfully learns her boundaries and her religion which is again great for kids to be reading. Diversity is such a good thing and for a popular author to delve into it is fantastic for the kids growing up now. I seriously wish books were like this back in my day.

The book is fast-paced without feeling rushed, and has a perfect balance between dialogue and action. Having recently started living in Boston for university, having a book that’s partially set in Boston has been a blast and reading about all of the Nine Worlds of Norse Myth and exploring them for the first time along with Magnus is the best!

Just your average person on a quest to save the world book. Magnus Chase and friends are at it again. Being tricked and falling for it but saving the world in the end, at least for the moment. It is sad that Rick Riordan puts way too many product placements in his books. I get his publisher is Disney but, it doesn't need to be all over the place in the book. Don't even get me started on how he is trying to be PC with this series. ( )

I was disappointed in this book. It seemed too formulaic to me, and while the quips and chapter titles are solid, I think the novelty of a Muslim woman as a Valkyrie has passed and I think there was little progression of the main characters. Unfortunately, the Norse mythology is either far less known or developed, thereby missing one of the strengths of Riordan's earlier series. And why can't Thor keep his hammer safe anyway? The highlight of the book is the newest einherjar, Alex Fierro, who like Magnus is progeny of Frey, but whose gender form is fluid. ( )

In the second adventure of Magnus Chase series, the fate of the 9 worlds depends on a misfit band of Norse supernaturals...again... Together they take on another impossible mission to stop Loki from triggering Ragnarock, which is pretty much the end of the universe.

Riordan has done a good job of creating character diversity and challenging traditional stereotypes. Magnus Chase himself was a homeless teenager, his friend Samira is a middle eastern Valkyrie, Hearthstone is a deaf and mute elf, Blitzen the dwarf would rather sew fine clothes than blacksmith and craft like his kinsmen, and a new character named Alex identifies as gender fluid.

The story itself is totally original and unlike anything I've ever read. The series makes fun of the Norse gods and makes them just plain weird. Even with the teenage humor, it is obvious a lot of research went into creating the world of Magnus Chase. There are a lot of Norse characters and lore that I had not heard of which is refreshing in the age of Marvel's superheroes (hunky Thor and company).

This is definitely a high school & young-adult fantasy series. As I stated in my review of the first book, Sword of Summer, I may have liked this more if I was a teenager. As always, happy reading! 📚
