Book Review – The Hammer of Thor

The Hammer of Thor book coverMagnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan

Anyone who reads this blog (or has talked to me about books) probably knows that I’m a big fan of Rick Riordan. His writing is fresh and witty, funny but never loses that emotional anchor. As always, he does not disappoint with The Hammer of Thor. Picking up after the events of the first book, The Sword of Summer, this novel had me laughing out loud from the first chapter. It also has adventure and more character development. (Caution: very slight spoiler ahead for anyone who is familiar with Rick Riordan’s other work…) And it ended with me slightly agape and very excited for the next novel because this was the last paragraph: “Annabeth smiled. “I don’t know the ocean very well, but my boyfriend does. I think it’s time you met Percy.”
