I received books, merchandise, and prizing from Disney Hyperion. The honest opinions are my own.
As you know from past posts we have a huge Rick Riodan fan in our lives. Our niece has read every book he has written and has been on pins and needles waiting for his next series, Magnus Chase, to come out. That’s why I was so excited that as a member of the Percy Pack, we recently received a box full of Presents From Percy.
See that black box? Guess what was in it? Yep, an advance copy of Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard!
When I gave it to our niece she was ecstatic! She sat down and started reading immediately. Since it is an advanced copy we can’t share any photos of the actual book with you, but guess what?
We’ve been given an exclusive opportunity to share the first five chapters with you! You can read them here:
How amazing is that? I’ve read all of the Percy Jackson books and love Rick Riordian’s writing style. The stories are all fast-paced, page-turners and after reading these 5 chapters this book and series is going to be just as action-packed and adventurous.
Here’s a chance to get to know each of the characters a bit better:

Here’s a summary:
Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers. One day, he’s tracked down by an uncle he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. His uncle tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god. The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants, and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarök, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years. When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision. Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .
Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard goes on sale October 6th, 2015.
