-From The back of the book
I was so desperate to get this book in my hands. I loved Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer, but my knowledge of Norse gods was pretty much none. And even though Magnus Chase explains a lot while you read it, I still wanted to know more. (I know I could get that info from actual history books, but you have to admit that Rick’s way of writing makes it way more fun). So when this one came out, I had to have it. And well, the wait was soooo worth it. Most of it is told by Hunding, and it’s pretty funny like everything Rick writes. Also the interviews are pretty funny.
If you love Rick Riordan you have to check this one out. Specially if you enjoy Magnus Chase and The Sword of Summer.
