Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Book 1 The Sword of Summer : By – Rick Riordan

By – Rick Riordan

For the individuals who don’t know about Rick Riordan’s works, this is an ideal book to jump into Riordan’s universe of imagination. The characters remain solitary in their personalities and are totally subsidiary with Norse folklore. The main character Magnus, is immediately found in the story to have a foundation not exactly like others.

The book opens with a look into the life of street kid Magnus Chase (If the last name sounds familiar to fans, then they will be in for a treat!). Life is tough for this 16-year old as he has to survive alone on the streets of Boston after his mother is murdered by wolves two year before.

His dad is a Norse god. Given this ancestry, there are commitments that Magnus needs to satisfy. The story is told with humour, yet additionally works superbly in laying out and building up a portion of the conviction frameworks of Norse mythology.

This book was amazingly fast paced. There were various distinctive subplots entwined in principle plot and made this book more charming to peruse. Counting things like Blitz’s opposition with Junior for Andskoti, the string used to supplant Gleipnir, the string that recently bound Fenris the wolf and the journey to look for Thor’s sledge truly added a decent touch to the general plot of the story.

This book is amazing and is one of the best books Rick Riordan has ever written. Nevertheless, this book has a few problems. Like the way book’s portray Thor truly distracted me.It has a hard story to discuss about. Nonetheless, an extraordinary part of the Norse mythology is that the destinies of the divine beings are much more clear, with a degree of clearness and absolutism in the jobs that every one realizes that he/she plays, even in the last fight (Ragnok which isn’t the last fight in this book).  

One other thing that I didn’t especially like is that there were too often in the book where I was unable to differentiate the Nine Realms. I needed to allude on various occasions to the rear of the book for the portrayal of every domain. To eradicate this issue, I imagine that Rick Riordan might have clarified the various domains in a more noteworthy detail, particularly in the start of the book.

I really enjoyed this book and looking forward to the sequel in this series, Magnus Chase and The Gods of Asgard: The Hammer of Thor and I can’t wait until it comes out.
