Wow

Honestly, this might be one of the best books I've read all year, narrated by one of my favorite narrators. If you have any love for Norse mythology or for the Percy Jackson world, please read Magnus Chase. It's a brilliant trilogy with a diverse set of characters that you can't help but love. All I could ask for is for more of it. Crouch is a fantastic narrator that breathes life into these characters and makes the story sing.

Riordan saved the best for last

This book was a lot of fun to read. It definitely had a different feel than the previous two, in part to the less than stellar narrator switch. The biggest change was the presence, or lack there of, of Loki. The dream sequences were at a minimum and felt like an integral part of the story, instead of a device to move the plot along. You didn't have the one character with more information than the rest popping up randomly. Instead, you learned as the characters did making the story that much more immersive. The ending wasn't what I expected but fit perfectly to the hero. Magnus is an atypical hero. He's a better healer than a fighter, (his weapon does best when he's not holding it) and is better at supporting his team than leading it, and the ending worked well in that context.
The narrator switch will be annoying for fans of the series, but the story shines through anyway. The Percy Jackson series are definitely better, but this series is so different you can enjoy it on its own. Definitely worth you time.

fire the narrator

the story is great but the narrator can not pronounce anything right. If you are making a book about the einherjar make sure the person you pay to be the voice of the book can say einherjar. If the book also features Nordic gods make sure he can say the names of the gods correctly.

Good but seems to be getting more political.

It was a good book as always. My only complaint being, how much sjw stuff that's being forced in to the book regardless if it makes sense or not. I don't really care about there topic, it's fine to add those traits to the characters, it just felt like the whole book is being built around them instead of the conflict alot of the time.

These books are fun for adults too

Its so fun to listen to his books,they are all such an adventure it's too bad though that he's doesn't have the same narrator much at all.I do happen to really like this guy though someone said he thought Michael did a great job on Mallory's accent-i agree

Enjoyable, Best Voice of the Series

First off, the voice. I really enjoy Michael Couch's voice with this. He captures each of the characters very nicely, even the females. Christopher Guetig did okay with the first one, but the second guy did NOT pull it off. Michael does the best in that regard. I especially loved his Irish accent for Mallory. The guy who did Hammer of Thor completely forgot about that I suppose. He did Alex's voice well, too.

As for the story itself, it's another blast just as in Riordan's other books, and even though his formula never changes much, you never get tired of it. The only real criticism I have is that its a bit back story heavy. I mean, we get more of Alex's past, as well as a bit of Magnus'. We also get some for ALL of Floor 19: Mallory, Halfborn, and TJ. While I love the back stories for them, especially Mallory, I can't help but feel like it could have been a bit more spread out, either in some new books or in Sword of Summer and Hammer of Thor. I mean, Magnus sits and has a talk with EACH of them, and they just tell about what happened. Some of it could have been a bit more subtle, like when Magnus heals TJ and sees his mother scolding him, or a nice reveal like what they did with Mallory.

Overall, it was a great story with great narration. I hope this isn't how he ends this series, because there's so much he could do with it. I'm excited for the future of this series!
