Teen Book Review: The Sword of Summer

“The Sword of Summer” is the first installation in Rick Riordan’s series, “Magnus Chase and the gods of Asgard.” The book is set in modern day Boston where a homeless orphan learns that he is the offspring of a powerful Norse god. His adventure begins with his questionable ‘courageous’ death after which he is taken to the Norse afterlife where he learns he has to save the worlds from doomsday. He meets several characters in his journey: dwarves; elves; gods and goddesses; and even very big scary monsters during his quest.

Having read many of Riordan’s books, I can say that this book does not fall short of being a great writing like his other works. I highly recommend reading this book and every other book of the series to be struck by how awing an imagination can be. This book is not just fiction, it is a way of learning new things and perspectives like most books are.
