"Could you do a glamour and turninto something smaller?" I asked it. "Preferably not a chain since it's no longer the 1990s?" The
sword didn't reply (duh), but I imagined it was humming at a more interrogative pitch,like, such as what? " I dunno. Something pocket- sized and innocuous. A pen, maybe?" The sword pulsed, almost like it was laughing. I imagined it saying, A pen sword.
That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard.
This is the first book in the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard trilogy, This is about a boy named Magnus Chase and at the start of the book he is homeless. Until one day he runs into his Uncle Randolph,
who believes the family line is connected to the norse gods. Magnus calls a sword and he tries to kill a fire giant who are attacking his friends and guess what he dies. He get sent to Hotel Valhalla. This book made me laugh, cry and root for the Magnus.
My favorite character was the talking sword Jack, and a deaf elf named Health. This book had Giants, elfs, dwalves and Gods. My favorite part of the book was meeting Thor, who has lost his hammer more than one. We also have a dwalf who crafts fashionable items.
This also had fun battles. Magnus and company fight giants, a giant squirrel, and each other. This story is based on Norse Mythology and had characters such as, Loki, Odin,Thor, and Frey. This book is great for reluntant readers and is a fun adventer read.
I rated this 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
