Description


Magnus Chase, a once-homeless teen, is a resident of the Hotel Valhalla and one of Odin's chosen warriors. As the son of Frey, the god of summer, fertility, and health, Magnus isn't naturally inclined to fighting. But he has strong and steadfast friends, including Hearthstone the elf, Blitzen the dwarf, and Samirah the Valkyrie, and together they have achieved brave deeds, such as defeating Fenris Wolf and battling giants for Thor's hammer, Mjolnir. Now Magnus and his crew must sail to the farthest borders of Jotunheim and Niflheim in pursuit of Asgard's greatest threat. Will they succeed in their perilous journey, or is Ragnarok lurking on the horizon?

This limited numbered and signed edition comes in a full-color slipcase, has special endpapers, and includes exclusive frontispiece art by series illustrator John Rocco.

Praise For…


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 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

"A whirlwind of myth, action, and wry sarcasm, perfect for readers hungry for a new hit of that Percy Jackson-type magic."
Horn Book

PRAISE FOR THE SWORD OF SUMMER

"With an epic plot, engaging (and diverse) characters, and tons of wisecracking humor, Riordan's latest is a page-turner."
School Library Journal

PRAISE FOR THE HAMMER OF THOR

"There's some crossover with characters from Riordan's other series, and the ending promises more overlap in future installments. A surefire hit."
Booklist

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 SWORD OF SUMMER

"The Sword of Summer is a propulsive, kinetic, witty rebooting of Norse mythology with all the charm of the Percy Jackson novels. Instantly likeable heroes! Insane action! Cool villains! A twisting, turning, always exciting story! Rick Riordan does it again, even better."
New York Times best-selling author Michael Grant
