Publisher Description

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.

“Riordan has once again created a reluctant hero who finds himself out of his depth. He stays fairly close to the spirit of the original myths, twisting them for extra comedic effect…There’s appeal for new readers, but Percy Jackson fans will also undoubtedly snap this up, and there’s even some overlap: Magnus’ cousin is Annabeth Chase. Buy extra copies, and prepare for the siege…Riordan has the magic touch.”

— Booklist 

Quotes

  • “Narrator Kieran Culkin focuses on capturing the often befuddled voice of Magnus…Culkin heightens the story’s humor and dives into the action as Magnus and his friends seek to retrieve Thor’s lost hammer and prevent Loki from marrying off his daughter to a giant…This blend of fantasy and realistic fiction is another crowd pleaser.”
