Thor's hammer is missing... again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon - the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn't just lost; it has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can't retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer's return is the gods' worst enemy, Loki - and the price he wants is very high.

Ok first off if you make all the voices to all the characters the same then you ruin the book completely. Plus he reads to fast. I had to rewind a lot to understand what was said. What happened to the first guy from book 1 he was awesome. Even though the story was great the narrator really ruin the book for me.

A product of the latest technologies, Barliona is a virtual world brimming with fun and entertainment. The government has become the guarantor for the in-game currency, allowing its free circulation. As a result the population floods Barliona in pursuit of easy money. It doesn't take long for the game developers to discover a source of free labor: real-world prison convicts. While their bodies are locked in special auto-maintenance virtual capsules, the prisoners' minds are released into Barliona's virtual mines.

Book 2 has tons more of everything u loved in book 1 from action, hidden secrets, suspense and the highly popular cleverness the main character shows. Honestly the guy reminds me of a funny futuristic Odysseus with superpowers lol
