Waiting on Wednesday: The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #2) by Rick Riordan


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pick is:

The Hammer of Thor
Series: Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #2
Author: Rick Riordan
Published October 4th 2016 by Puffin

Goodreads Summary
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.

Why I'm waiting:
  • Rick Riordan is one of my favourite authors, of all times. Anything he writes, I get, and the Magnus Chase series is no exception. I loved The Sword of Summer, and the look at Norse mythology, so can't wait to read more from this world.
Are you waiting for this book? Have you already read it? Let me know :)

  1. I'm likewise waiting for the second Magnus Chase book! I loved Sword of Summer and I'm a fan of Norse mythology and its various interpretations on page and screen.

  2. Unfortunately, this is the first book by Rick Riordan since the release of the first PJO book that I'm not excited about and won't be pre-ordering. It's sad, but with Magnus Chase, I felt like Riordan's become a formula author. I still love his wit and the heart of his characters, and his other books are definite rereads, but this isn't the one for me :( Still, I hope you love it as much as I loved this other books!
