Summary!!

This book Magnus Chase, a once-homeless teen, is a resident of the Hotel Valhalla and one of Odin’s chosen warriors. As the son of Frey, the god of summer, fertility, and health, Magnus isn’t naturally inclined to fighting. But he has strong and steadfast friends, including Hearthstone the elf, Blitzen the dwarf, and Samirah the Valkyrie, and together they have achieved brave deeds, such as defeating Fenris Wolf and battling giants for Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir. Now Magnus faces his most dangerous trial yet. His cousin, Annabeth, recruits her boyfriend, Percy Jackson, to give Magnus some pointers, but will his training be enough? Loki is free from his chains. He’s readying Naglfar, the Ship of the Dead, complete with a host of giants and zombies, to sail against the Asgardian gods and begin the final battle of Ragnarok. It’s up to Magnus and his friends to stop him, but to do so they will have to sail across the oceans of Midgard, Jotunheim, and Niflheim in a desperate race to reach Naglfar before it’s ready to sail. Along the way, they will face angry sea gods, hostile giants, and an evil fire-breathing dragon. Magnus’s biggest challenge will be facing his own inner demons. Does he have what it takes to outwit the wily trickster god?blew me away. I love the elements of fandom love, comic con and also the average girls falls for a movie star all with a adorable fairy tale twist. I love both characters and read this book so fast. It was so unique book but it also just brought tears to me eyes throughout the book both tears of joy and sadness. It was such a fast book to read and I adored the characters so much.

My Thoughts:

I really adored this series so much. I loved how this series tied everything together but with Rick humor and myths It was such a fun read. I thought this book really solidified my one of my favorite book themes including found family. I just really adored this cast of characters so much and how diverse it became. I loved how the romantic entanglements occurred in this novel AND I really just love Magnus Humor. I also grew to enjoy the various members on his quests. I felt like we really got learn more about these characters that we spent two books with. I adored the connection back to the greek and roman world and PERCY cameo made my life! I def really enjoyed this series and just want more set in this world!
