As a member of the Percy Pack — helping to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the Percy Jackson series — we’re delighted today to be bringing you a sneak peek at Rick Riordan’s new book, Magnus Chase & the Gods of Asgard.
Though the book doesn’t come out until October 6th, you can read the first five chapters RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!
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 . . .
