You’ve heard me go on and on about my love for Percy Jackson, right?
Well Rick Riordan has done it again with MAGNUS CHASE, a new series by the acclaimed author and brilliant story teller. He has been the only author to capture a sense of adventure and might I dare say, love of reading?
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 an uncle he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous.
His uncle 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 Ragnarök, 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 . . .
The first book in this new series by Rick Riordan will hit stores on October 6th everywhere.
You can download and read chapters 1 – 5 today.
I am totally looking forward to making the time to read this series.
You can preorder the first book, MAGNUS CHASE and the GODS of ASGARD today.
