MP!er Kellie couldn’t resist giving Rick Riordan’s new ‘Magnus Chase’ a 10 out of 10.

Time to learn your Norse mythology and laugh along the way with another action-packed adventure series from Rick Riordan – ‘Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer’. Find out MP!er Kellie thought of it below.

Have you read anything by Rick Riordan before? If not, are you more likely to now?/ If you have, how does this compare? I haven’t read anything by Rick Riordan before, but I will definitely look into his other books in the new year.

If you had to recommend this book to a friend, what would be the best thing you’d tell them? e.g. writing, humour, characterisation, plot etc. The plot and the characterisation is really good and that there is a lot of humour in the story. The story is really well thought out and I enjoyed it.

Did you have a favourite character? Tell us why! Blitz and Hearth were my favourite characters. I loved their relationship and that they would do anything to protect each other and Magnus.

What was your impression of Norse mythology before reading this book? I had never heard of Norse mythology until I read this book.

Can you remember your favourite line or scene? “Giving me away so you could marry a giantess? Dude, what was that? Blades before babes, you know what I’m saying.”

Rate out of 10. 10/10. Absolutely loved it; it’s another of my favourite reads this year.

Even if you haven’t read the rest of the ‘Fallen’ series, ‘Unforgiven’ is a brilliant love story.
