“My name is Magnus Chase. I’m sixteen years old. This is the story of how my life went downhill after I got myself killed.”
Most of you probably think what in the hell am I doing with Magnus Chase. Although I'm not that big of a fan for Fantasy, I did love Rick Riordan's infamous Percy Jackson and The Olympians. This book was actually a gift from a generous Santa, who was unknown because it was Secret Santa event from BBI. I'll tell you who she is at the end.
I didn't plan on reviewing this book now, I thought I'll do it tonight. My back has been killing me and my eyes are all sleepy. But obligation is an obligation and I gotta do it before I crashed. Though, to be fair, I read two versions of this book and all quotes are in English because I found the English version funnier and more crazy than Indonesian version.
“Myths are simply stories about truths we've forgotten.”
So, Magnus Chase is dead. Now, actually. Before, he was a homeless kid because his mom was killed by wolves and he doesn't want to live with the system. But who his father is also brings him into the world of Asgardians, the world he doesn't know exists until after he's brought to Valhalla by Samirah al-Abbas, a Valkyrie. Now Magnus has a mission, find The Sword of Summer he previously found but lost when he got dead, and stop Fenris the Wolf before The Wolf escapes his prison Lyngvi and starts Ragnarok, the big Doomsday.
