R ick Riordan is back with a new mythology, Magnus Chase. After wrapping up his series Heroes of Olympus last year, he is finally back with his new writing based on Norse mythology. All of his books are equally hilarious and the best quality with the correct mixture of myth and fiction. Long gone are the days when a child shows absolutely no interest in their own history class when the teacher talks about Greek or Roman god, or just about any mythology actually. It begins with a brief introduction of Magnus Chase, similar to what older readers get in Percy Jackson. It shares the same thrill and fun. So the book begins by introducing a character called Magnus Chase who is almost 16 and has been homeless for almost 2 years now.
The novel opens on the sixteenth birthday of the protagonist Magnus Chase, who has been living on the streets of Boston since his mother.
