The Sword of Summer

Summary ½ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Rick Riordan

N concept is something that only works once and now it s just being overused It doesn t help that this book is full of Percy Jackson references that seem well masturbatory And pop culture references that will look dated in less than 5 years Count me out for the rest of the seriesPre review I ve heard rumors about a Norse mythology book by Riordan but only now has it popped p on Goodreads I m super excited It better be as good as Percy Jackson I hope it has some of this Actually I hope this series is better than Percy Jackson because this time Riordan has the opportunity to put Loki in itimage error Really really enjoyed this one I m finding the Norse Mythology which I ve never really learned about FACINATING plus it s full of great diverse characters Here s my full booktalk Let s discuss together See reviews at YA Midnight ReadsTHE SWORD OF SUMMER was released today Whoop xD GET YOUR BUTTS MOVING PEOPLE AND GO BUY A COPY FROM YOUR LOCAL BOOKSTORE TODAY DThis review is spoiler COPY FROM YOUR LOCAL BOOKSTORE TODAY DThis review is spoiler starsRick Riordan s books were some of the first novels I read as a reader and throughout these past years his books have always remained my all time favourites Percy Jackson Heroes of Olympus Kane Chronicles and now you can add Magnus Chase to that list of awesome Why BECAUSE THE SWORD OF SUMMER WAS FANTABULOUSIn fact I loved this book so much that I bookmarked all the funny bits my favourite parts which was basically the whole book Whoops Just a note The Sword of Summer is perfectly readable and spoiler free if you have not read any Percy Jackson book But it would certainly add to the enjoyment of the novel if you did because in sual Riordan style there s some inside jokes here and thereCAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW WE GET ANNABETH CAMEOS She doesn t have a role in the main plotline of the story but she s there and as fabulous as she is and I totally flailed each time she popped pThe Percy Jackson and Magnus Chase books do have parallels and similarities but it didn t feel like I was just reading the same book with different names While both books have gods and goddesses and demigods and monsters and badass characters and truck loads of humour yet the characters themselves were all very much niue as well as the plotline and world building etcTalking about Riordan s out of this world sense of humour can we just admire it for a while Could you do a glamour and turn into something smaller I asked it Preferably not a chain since it s no longer the 1990s The sword didn t reply duh but I imagined it was humming at a interrogative pitch like Such as what I dunno Something pocket size and innocuous A pen maybeThe sword pulsed almost like it was laughing I imagined it saying A pen sword That is the stupidest thing I ve ever heard EXCUST ME MY HEART JUST STOPPED RICK RIORDAN YOU ARE SNEAAAAAKY This is an important battle the fire lord Surt Fenris Wolf Surely that s worthy of your attention Thor s right eye twitched That s a fine offer Really I d "LOVE TO BUT I HAVE ANOTHER PRESSING APPOINTMENT GAME "to but I have another pressing appointment Game Thrones Marvin explained Shut p And let s not forget chapter titles like this The Man with the Metal Bra You Had One Job Hearthstone Passes Out Even More than Jason Grace Though I Have No Idea Who That Is and How to Kill Giants Politely Other than his funny dialogue one of the strongest aspects of The Sword of Summer is in its diverse set of characters Samirah al Abbas who is Magnus Valkyrie is a young Muslim girl and wears a hijab She s in an arranged marriage that she s happy is happening she s in luuuuurve and has big dreams for her future There s also Blitz a dwarf and Hearth an elf who also happens to be deaf and they just bring another level of hilarity to the novel They pretend to be homeless dudes when they were Marie Antoinette undercover looking after Magnus before he was introduced to the whole world of Vikings and monsters and magicI will say there is ZERO romance in this book which I didite like because dammit not EVERY romance just happens to begin at the start of a series Thanks for keeping it realistic Riordan I do hope there is
A Romance In The Future 
romance in the future and I can sorta see one but maybe that s my crazy fangirl mind speaking we shall see So why not a full 5 stars1 I feel like Magnus character could se some brushing p and development I love his goofy snarkiness but feel as if I don t know him all that well other than his funny side of his personality2 I feel like the last 14 to. Gigante deciso a carbonizzare il Ponte di Boston e migliaia di innoccntiL'ascesa al Valhalla l'Olimpo nordico è solo l'inizio pcr il giovane eroe Tra bellicose valchirie nerboruti guerrieri e sontuosi banchetti Magnus sta per scoprire la sconvolgente verità suo padre è. OMG I loved so much the last chapter Of course Magnus would lose that bet He needs at least 9 books to surpass Annabeth hahaha UPDATE First 3 books are 99 cents on Kindle US 51919I enjoyed this book a great deal I m wanting to get into Norse Mythology and even though this was a funny take on those things I still enjoyed it One star off for making my wolves the bad guys in a book once again And no I need no commentary on that I loved Magnus friends well I loved him too There is a lot of no commentary on that I loved Magnus friends well I loved him too There is a lot of and funny moments in the book And I figured that going into this I WILL be reading as many books as I can of Vikings etc that are history based Magnus has no idea who his father is as it goes and he has to hunt for a sword so the world doesn t come to an end Well that is something to lay on a kid who has been living on the streets for two years He has some trusty friends named Hearth and Blitzen that stay with him They turn out to be something else and I love them to pieces There are other friends in the book that I enjoyed SamXMalloryTJHalfborn Gundersonand I probably left someone out as I tend to do but not on purpose I will continue on with the series to see what they get p to in their next adventures I will leave you will a couple of excerpts I d seen some weird stuff in my life I once watched a crowd of people wearing nothing but Speedos and Santa hats job down Boylston in the middle of winter I met a guy who could play the harmonica with his nose a drum set with his feet a guitar with his hands and a xylophone with his butt all at the same time I knew a woman who d adopted a grocery cart and named it Clarence Then there was this dude who claimed to be from Alpha Centauri and had philosophical conversations with Canadian geese Long enough to know you re an idiot she grumbledWhat she s trying to say TJ offered is that hallmates always protect each other We ll cover your escapeThe door of my room shook Cracks spiderwebbed from the nameplate A decorative spear off the way of the corridor X TJ called HelpThe half troll s door expolded off its hinges X lumbered into the hallway as if he d been standing just inside waiting for the call YesTJ pointed Magnus s door SuirrelOkayX marched over and shoved his back against my door It shuddered again but X held firm Enraged barking echoed from inside Halfborn Gunderson stumbled out of his room wearing nothing but smiley face boxers double bladed axes in his hands What s going on He glowered at Blitz and Hearth Should I kill the dwarf and the elfNo Blitzen yelped Don t kill the dwarf and the elf They re with me I said We "re leavingSuirrel TJ explained Halfborn s shaggy eyebrows achieved orbit Suirrel as in suirrel suirrelSuirrel "leavingSuirrel TJ explained Halfborn s shaggy eyebrows achieved orbit Suirrel as in suirrel suirrelSuirrel Mallory agreed And I m surrounded by morons moronsA raven soared down the hall It landed on the nearest light fixture and suawked at me accusinglyWell that s great Mallory said The ravens have sensed your friends intrusion That means the Valkyries won t be far behind Happy Reading Mel MY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading List I ll give Riordan credit for his mythological research but his writing and characterizations need a lot of work still Not only does Magnus have the exact same voice and personality as Percy Jackson and Jason Grace but they all have a weird combination of forced snark and dad jokes that makes them sound cartoonish than believable and you need something to ground characters in reality when you have all this magical stuff happening While it s great that he s trying to include diversity with his cast the fact that the Muslim girl has a shape shifting hijab seems just as ham fisted and clueless as when he degraded Nico into a stereotype in the last bookWait is this a hint at Riordan s Da Vinci Code inspired mashup with Dan Brown In all seriousness we do have a new series coming our way and the next book has been announced as wellThose looking for of a connection to previous books than just Annabeth Chase showing p will be disappointed as it doesn t seem like this series will interconnect the same way that Heroes of Olympus did with Percy Jackson and the OlympiansAlso I m taking off a point for this Ask the fandom community if you don t already know I finally read this book after my pre review got so disturbingly popular I m not impressed It was amusing but I didn t particularly care about the characters and I was bored through most of its 500 pages Maybe the Percy Jackso.
