New Titles for Teens
The Ship of the DeadBy Rick Riordan
The Ship of the Dead is the third and final book in the Magnus Chase series and is written by Rick Riordan. In this book, Magnus Chase is in the Viking afterlife Valhalla, where he prepares for the world ending Norse event of Ragnarok. I loved the first two books in this series, so I had a lot of expectations placed on the finale, and I have to say that the book surpassed my expectations. Just like the first two books, this book masterfully manages the humorous tone with the tense feelings of saving the world.
The Hammer of ThorBy Rick Riordan
The Hammer of Thor is the second book in the Magnus Chase series and is written by Rick Riordan. In the previous book, Magnus and his friends learn that Thor has misplaced his famous hammer, but it’s not given much thought because it’s a common habit of his. However, it becomes a big issue when it’s learned that Thor’s hammer has fallen into enemy hands. In this book, Magnus and his friends must find the hammer quickly or else the mortal worlds will be destroyed by an army of giants.
