I partnered with Disney-Hyperion to offer this giveaway of Rick Riordan’s newest book, Magnus Chase: The Hammer of Thor. All thoughts are my own. Affiliate links used to show you where to buy the books.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that we have been huge fans of Rick Riordan’s books for years. We were excited when the first book in the new Magnus Chase series, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, came out last year (and although Magnus Chase is geared towards tweens and teens, I read it RIGHT away and loved every minute of it). Check out my reaction to the first book. I can’t wait to get my copy of the second book, Magnus Chase: The Hammer of Thor so that I can start reading it. I can’t wait to continue Magnus’ story. I know it will be as full of adventure and laughs as the first book.
ABOUT THE HAMMER OF THOR
By Rick Riordan
Release date: October 4, 2016
The second installment in Rick Riordan’s blockbuster Norse mythology series has Magnus and friends helping the god of thunder find his missing weapon before all Muspellheim breaks loose.
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.
ABOUT Magnus Chase: Hotel Valhalla Guide to the Norse Worlds
I am so excited about the new companion book: For Magnus Chase: Hotel Valhalla Guide to the Norse Worlds (An Official Rick Riordan Companion Book): Your Introduction to Deities, Mythical Beings & Fantastic Creatures
So you’ve made it to Valhalla. Now what?
This “who’s who” guide to the gods, goddesses, and other important figures of Norse mythology was commissioned by Helgi, who, after more than a millennium as manager of Hotel Valhalla, became fed up with answering the same questions from newly deceased heroes at check-in. The profiles provide essential stats, interviews, and personal reflections so you can identify the gods and avoid those awkward introductions. Handy facts about other beings round out this go-to tome. You’ll never see Ratatosk as a cute little rodent or confuse a dwarf with an elf ever again!
