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 . . .

I simply cannot wait to read about Magnus Chase. I adore the books by Rick Riordan. Though I have yet to read the very last Percy Jackson book, ack! But soon. I'm going to re-read all the first ones first, hiih. Soonish, I think. But anyway. I think this new series sounds all kinds of exciting and interesting :D And I can't wait to get to read it in October. So excited to meet Magnus as well. <3 I'll love it, I'm sure of it.
What are you waiting for on this godly Wednesday?
