Let’s Review: The Sword of Summer

Summary:

IMG_0027

Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.

One day, he’s tracked down by a man he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. The man tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god.

The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years.

When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision.

Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .

About the Teen: Devon

Salut! Ahoj! Annyeonghaseyo! Hello!

Hi, I’m Devon! I’m new to this blog. Here’s what you should know about me.

  • I am an avid reader and I have ~a lot~ of favorite books. Some of them include The Help, The Princess Bride, and the Percy Jackson series.
  • I love Chris Pratt. Like veryveryvery much. My friends are slightly terrified.
  • I love the TV show Parks and Recreation. Bye, bye, Li’l Sebastian!
  • I consider myself hilarious.
  • I love animals more than the average person. The inside of my head is filled with videos of baby sloths making squeaking noises.
  • Food is life.
  • My favorite movies include Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Princess Bride, and any animated Disney movie ever.
  • My personal blog is called Sloths and Books, but I’ve only posted 3 things so don’t go looking for it. It’s not worth it. Srsly.
  • I am bad at introductions, so I’m just going to insert a puppy gif and call it a day.
