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 barely knows-a man his mother claimed was dangerous. Uncle Randolph 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 . . .
From the Compact Disc edition.

Narration is about the worst I've ever heard. Too bad they didn't use the same narrator that was on Riordan's Heroes of Olympus series. Book was fun.

An excellent new title for all fans of Riordan's Greek God series! This one is about the Norse Gods--Magnus Chase goes from a homeless kid on the streets to a hero in Valhalla. He must attach a new rope to Fenrus wolf--but if he fails, that will start Ragnarock and the end of the world.

Great book! I loved the way the author presented Thor in the story with his talking goats. Can't wait for the next book.
