“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 . . .”
*points at title* I admit nothing.
*looks at twitter picture with said shield* Oh....
I love Norse Mythology so I am highly looking forward to starting this series.
Plus I love the name "Magnus." If you put a Magnus in it, I will read it. (Same with dragons, so not saying much. Double points if there is a dragon named Magnus.) I am easy to appease.
