About the Book
Thor's hammer is missing again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon--the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn't just lost, it has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can't retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately, the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer's return is the gods' worst enemy, Loki--and the price he wants is very high.
My Take on the Book
This was a great book that was truly a page turner. Not only do you get the characters that you loved from the first book, you also get to meet some new ones too. You also get to explore the background of some of the main characters more deeply and by the end you have a better understanding of much of their motivation, which added some nice clarification. The book flowed nicely and from chapter to chapter I was really encouraged to read more and more to get to the conclusion.
On of the things that was so great about this series is the wit and personalities that are given to all of the characters within the book. I also have to say I appreciated the fact that there was a gender-fluid character in the book. This really showed that Riordan understands that times are changing!
In the end this was an amazing addition to the series!
