Reviews

"Norse myths are in right now, and Riordan has the magic touch."--Booklist
"This is a highly entertaining, tongue-in-cheek romp. Magnus is a witty and likable teen who proves himself worthy of redemption. The novel expertly sets up for book two and will be adored by boys and girls alike."--Voice of Youth Advocates
"Riordan offers a terrific cast that is effortlessly diverse--all of the allies stand as independent, well-constructed characters who each bring entirely different skills, histories, interests, and personalities to the group."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A whirlwind of myth, action, and wry sarcasm, perfect for readers hungry for a new hit of that Percy Jackson-type magic."--Horn Book
"With an epic plot, engaging (and diverse) characters, and tons of wisecracking humor, Riordan's latest is a page-turner."--School Library Journal
