Book Review: The Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #3)

Hey Guys!
I just finished the latest part in Rick Riordan’s series about the Norse Gods. It’s called the Ship of the Dead, so let’s see what it is about!

The Plot:
Magnus and his friends have to save the world by preventing Ragnarok. That basically entails defeating Loki and stopping his ship of the dead from sailing.
Piece of cake, right? The have a nice handkerchief that unfolds into a violently yellow boat to send take them through the nine worlds…

 

The Rating:
I’m sure that by now you all know that I’m a huge Rick Riordan fan. After reading all his books dealing with Greek mythology I was excited about this new series about the Norse Gods.
So far, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard has been a fascinating insight. I already learned so much!
The first two books were impossible to put down, so I was very excited to finally pick up book #3.
Let me say upfront, this is not the strongest book in the series. The Ship of the dead is a nice read. The story is interesting and there are lots of funny moments. However, ultimately it just didn’t feel as good as the other two novels. I’ve read many of Riordan’s other books, so I know he can do better. To be honest, if this is the only book you read, I’m sure you wouldn’t even notice as it still is a good book. The others are just a notch better.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still super psyched by the series and hoping for another part!

The Ship of the Dead is not Rick Riordan’s best work but it’s a nice read that will have you laughing out loud!
