The much anticipated first book in the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series is about to be released and long-time fans of best-selling author Rick Riordan can't wait to follow the adventure of his newest hero--Magnus Chase.

Conceived and written specifically for young adult readers, this enjoyable and informative educational companion offers an in-depth look into the exciting stories and characters of Norse mythology. The ancient stories are retold like modern thrillers in this fast-paced and informative primer.
