My friend Tobi recommended Magnus Chase to me way back in May when I was going out of town for work. I listened to the first one and enjoyed it, but wasn’t super motivated to pick up the second book.
And then, at some point in August when we had coffee, they convinced me to pick the series back up. So I did.

#SNRtbs for Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard (series). If you've read any Rick Riordan before, you'll know just what to expect going into this series. The first book was a little slow for me; I figured it was Percy Jackson rehashed with Norse gods. But come the second book and the introduction of Alex Fierro? I was hooked. It's still your standard hero journey but there are interesting conversations about both faith and gender that kept me turning the pages.
