Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase 1)

by Rick Riordan

My day started out normally enough.  I was sleeping under a bridge when some guy kicked me awake and said, ‘They’re after you.’  Next thing I know, I’m reunited with my obnoxious uncle, who casually informs me that my long-lost father is a Norse god.

Nothing normal about that.  And it turns out the gods of Asgard are preparing for war.  Apparently, if I can’t find the sword my father lost two thousand years ago, there will be doom.  Doomsday, to be precise.

A fire giant attacking the city?
Immortal warriors hacking each other to pieces?
Unkillable wolves with glowing eyes?
It’s all coming up.

But first I’m going to die.

This is the story of how my life goes downhill from there . . .

About Rick Riordan

Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for his mystery novels for adults. He says that the idea for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief first came to him while he was teaching Greek mythology at middle school in San Francisco. But rumour has it that Camp Half Blood actually exists, and Rick spends his summers there recording the adventures of young demigods. Some believe that, to avoid a mass panic among the mortal population, he was forced to swear on the River Styx to present Percy Jackson's story as fiction. Rick lives in Texas (apart from his summers on Half Blood Hill) with his wife and two sons.
