Book Review: The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #2)

Hey my lovely readers!
I’m continuing my journey through all of Rick Riordan’s books and recently finished The Hammer of Thor. It’s the second installment in his Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series – I hope there are many more to come!

Goodreads Cover – The Hammer of Thor

 

The Plot:
Thor misplaced his hammer. Again. Only this time it’s not that easy to be found. So Magnus Chase and his friends are sent to retrieve the hammer and save the world…

 

The Rating:
I’m sure you know it by know: I simply love Rick Riordan’s novels. After devouring the Percy Jackson books as well as the Heroes of Olympus series, I was super excited about his new topic: the Norse Gods. One of the main reasons I enjoy Riordan’s works so much is because you learn something with each page. I had always been fascinated by Greek mythology but the Norse stuff was completely new to me. As this is the second book in the series by now I have a pretty good idea of what’s going on in Asgard and I can’t wait to find out more.
Moreover, there is such brilliant humor in these pages! Riordan has definitely some of the best jokes assembled in this one – and also some of the funniest chapter titles.
The story itself is hell of ride and you never know what to expect next. Riordan fills his books with amiable characters and amazing friends. It basically ties right in with the stuff we are used to coming from him!

Another amazing book by Rick Riordan that will make you laugh, cry and even teach you something!
