Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE SWORD OF SUMMER

"The Sword of Summer combines the glory of Norse myth with the joy of Rick Riordan's effervescent world-building. One of Riordan's funniest books-everything from the chapter titles to the wry humor of Magnus Chase will have you chuckling, even as the plot races along at breakneck speed. Check me in to Hotel Valhalla, please. I'll be staying."--New York Times #1 best-selling author Cassandra Clare
PRAISE FOR THE HAMMER OF THOR

"This latest installment in Riordan's Nordic-themed fantasy series is a fast-paced adventure narrative featuring snappy dialogue and a diverse cast of well-developed characters. The author possesses a singular talent for re-creating contemporary teenspeak. An entertaining sequel that will whet fans' appetites for the next installment."----Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE SWORD OF SUMMER

"Rick Riordan's new series is simply brilliant-maybe his best yet! I thought I knew Norse mythology, but now that I've read the gripping and hilarious Sword of Summer, I'll never see Thor the same way again. Get ready to stay up all night reading!"--New York Times #1 best-selling author Harlan Coben
PRAISE FOR THE SWORD OF SUMMER
