Seereviews 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 D This review is spoiler free 4.5 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 FANTABULOUS.In 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 usual Riordan style, there s some inside jokes here and there.CAN 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 up.The 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 unique as well as the plotline and world building etc.Talking 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 ainterrogative pitch, like, Such as what I dunno Something pocket size and innocuous A pen, maybe The 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 of Thrones, Marvin explained Shut up 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 undercover, looking after Magnus before he was introduced to the whole world of Vikings and monsters and magic.I will say there is ZERO romance in this book, which I did quite 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 books, and I can sorta see one but maybe that s my crazy fangirl mind speaking we shall see So why not a full 5 stars 1 I feel like Magnus character could use somebrushing up 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 personality.2 I feel like the last 1 4 to 1 5 was less enjoyable than rest of the book I felt a little bored, and you can even tell from my bookmarks because there is less in that area.BUT that being said, The Sword of Summer lived up to my expectations and I loved this book through and through Diverse and lovable characters, complex world building, hilarious dialogue in usual Riordan fashion hands down one of my favourite books of 2015 BRING ON BOOK 2 Edit 31 07 15GUYS LOOK WHAT I HAVE GOODBYE INTERNET SEE YOU IN A FEW HOURS.Edit 09 10 14GUYS WE HAVE A SYNOPSIS 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 an uncle he s never met a man his mother claimed was dangerous His uncle 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 dieSO MUCH EXCITEMENT SO IT WAS THE COUSIN Edit 07 10 14My thoughts Magnus needs to be some close relative of Annabeth s I highly doubt he d make Magnus Annabeth and Percy s son, because that would be TOTALLY weird seeing Percabeth all grown up and I d honestly hate that So no, let s hope that doesn t happen We can t forget Annabeth has step brothersHowever, SPOILER FOR THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS In the book, Annabeth mentions she has an uncle and cousin in Boston but she doesn t really know them because her dad and uncle don t get along well WAIT WHAT NOW The only reason I can see for Rick Riordan to include that is to give us a little hint towards who this Magnus Chase guy is.END SPOILERBut regardless, there will have to be Percabeth cameos, right THERE HAS TO BE THERE MUST nods quickly Edit 07 10 14MAGNUS CHASE AS IN ANNABETH CHASE screams More info 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 Jackson 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 series.Pre review I ve heard rumors about a Norse mythology book by Riordan, but only now has it popped up 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 it image error @DOWNLOAD PDF õ The Sword of Summer Ä

Eppure Appena Cominciata 4.5 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 soundcartoonish 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 includediversity 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 book.Wait, 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 well.Those looking forof a connection to previous books than just Annabeth Chase showing up 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 Olympians.Also, I m taking off a point for thisAsk the fandom community if you don t already know A 80% Very Good NotesSometimes slow and specious, it shines in spite of soft spots sparkling spry and spirited in several standout sections. I really enjoyed this read I ve been wanting to read Magnus Chase for such a long time and I was definitely satisfied I really loved all of the characters, the world building, and all of the different adventures I can t wait to readof this series in the future. UPDATE First 3 books are 99 cents on Kindle US 5 19 19I enjoyed this book a great deal I m wanting to get intoNorse Mythology and even though this was afunny 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 snark 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 arehistory 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 up 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 grumbled What she s trying to say, T.J offered, is that hallmates always protect each other We ll cover your escape The door of my room shook, Cracks spiderwebbed from the nameplate A decorative spear off the way of the corridor X T.J called Help The 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 Yes T.J pointed Magnus s door Squirrel Okay X 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 elf No Blitzen yelped Don t kill the dwarf and the elf They re with me, I said We re leaving Squirrel, T.J explained Halfborn s shaggy eyebrows achieved orbit Squirrel as in squirrel, squirrel Squirrel squirrel, Mallory agreed And I m surrounded by morons morons A raven soared down the hall It landed on the nearest light fixture and squawked at me accusingly Well, 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 m obsessed full video book review to come 2 1 2 stars.Middle grade it may be, but I really enjoyed The Lightning Thief I thought it was creative, fast paced, entertaining and with a great message for all kids who feel a little on the outside sometimes As with Harry Potter, it takes a normal, seemingly unremarkable kid and propels him into a world where he s a hero And it s just fun The Sword of Summer, though, doesn t feel like anything new Some people will shriek No at this, but I really think it s time for Mr Riordan to move on from these stories about young heroes and heroines and Greek Roman Egyptian Norse Gods At this point, the stories are all starting to blend into one and it feels like his well of ideas has run dry.It s incredibly hard to distinguish Magnus s voice from that of Percy Jackson It s pretty much the same kid again, with the same wit and snark, he s just been given a different name Instead of being the son of a Greek god, though, Magnus is the son of a Norse god a difference that doesn t make the story different enough, but does provide some major info dumpy moments.Don t get me wrong, Riordan s writing is still easy to read and quite funny Magnus makes lots of snarky comments to ensure that the book never becomes too serious But is it enough Sadly, I don t think so.I guess Riordan has a tried and tested formula that he applies to all his books, but it s starting to show The Sword of Summer was predictable and none of the characters really stood out I honestly doubt I will remember their names in a few days time.As much as it will hurt the author s loyal fans, there comes a time when every author must move onto something new For Riordan, I think it should be now.ALSO Completely unrelated to the book s content, but that guy on the cover does not look a teenager In fact, he looks just like Kurt Cobain.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Pinterest
