#BookReview: 9 From the Nine Worlds (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard) by Rick Riordan






Synopsis: The Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard trilogy may have concluded, but we haven't heard the last of our favorite peeps from the Nine Worlds. Join Hearthstone, Blitzen, Samirah, Alex, Jack, T.J., Mallory, Halfborn, and more on a hilarious and unforgettable journey through Rick Riordan's unique take on Norse mythology. While Magnus is off visiting his cousin, Annabeth, his friends find themselves in some sticky, hairy, and smelly situations as they try to outwit moronic giants, murderous creatures, and meddlesome gods. Can they stave off Ragnarok at least until Magnus gets back?

Rating: ★★★
My Review: I think I would have enjoyed this one more if I would have read the other books that are in the series.  I did love all the artwork and there was 9 different people in this one so I think that is how they got the title.  I think that I will try this one again once I have read the books in the actual series.  I did enjoy the stories a little but I felt kind of lost. 












PRAISE FOR THE SHIP OF THE DEAD

"Black, deaf, trans, Muslim, white, homeless, and formerly homeless readers will see characters like themselves cracking jokes and caring for one another, with identities that are crucial to success rather than a distraction or side issue. The climax, a deeply emotional testament to the power of community, could leave some in tears. Riordan is again fighting for a revolution in middle-grade fiction with his funny, whiplash-fast writing and deep moral convictions."―Kirkus Reviews
