Book review: The sword of summer By: Rick Riordan

Ahh Magnus chase, i was so excited to read this book! Rick has been one of my favorite authors. Sadly there are so many things to say about this book. Good and Bad.

1st: The mythology in this book is in some places wrong. Im VERY familiar with norse mythology and some of the mythology was off. There was also a running joke with the Thor and The Avengers fandoms that Thor has an obsession with pop tarts. No matter how much i love Loki, finding that he had an obsession with pop tarts was kind of sad to find this. 2nd: There were WAY to many Percy Jackson references! Throughout the book there were about 20 Percy Jackson and The gods of olympus references. The end of the book is Magnus learning about his cousin’s life ANNABETH CHASE. It is clear to see that Rick isn’t ready to let Percy go. Im not saying that it is a bad book it is actually a great book but if you really like all of the percy jackson books then this is a great choice. But if you don’t like them, then you won’t like this book. There are some strange things going on in this books, like a talking sword, a norse god obsessed with netflix, and talking goats that are killed twice (its a long story). It is a great book, with modern roots so go and read!!!!!
