Publisher's Summary

Beloved characters from the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series star in these hilarious and imaginative new short stories, each set in a different one of the Nine Worlds from Norse mythology.

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?

Gritted my teeth no more

Heindalf an instagram obsessed little b, Thor a farting god, valkiries a food fighting army? Really Rick? Percy was mad at the gods, he kept them at bay, Carter Kane fought them with everything he had but now in this book series they are a circus, dumb, buffons parading around for what? I do not understand the point of making the gods look so ridiculous. Is it an American thing to ridiculize other cultures? Seems to me Nordic gods are being portrayed as nothing less than dumb savages that knew nothing more than say ‘sad face emoji’. I couldn’t make it pass thru the second chapter when I stopped the audiobook and will return it. It did stang since I have been a fan, waiting for the new book every year but maybe I grew too old for your books which its a shame, I enjoyed to having the concept of ancient gods in modern times, too bad now my powerful gods are being displayed as clowns who are only good to make teenagers laugh. ‘Sad face emoji’ indeed.

An wonderful little addition

I loved this set of short stories that gives us a chance to hear from the friends of Magnus Chase in their own words. Give us more!

Annoying

I found the voices in this production grating and annoying. With each new one I hoped that maybe there would be a different, better narrator, but no. It doesn't help that somehow RR's first-person-character writing style works better in a printed book than in an audio tale. The dialogue just felt stiff—compounded by the irritating narration. I'd recommend reading this one in print, but even then only if you've read every other book in any of the gods' series and are being a completist about it all.

disappointing

I was disappointed in this book. not worth the money. I think a clear disclaimer is needed about the story line and contents.

Pretty disappointed

Although Norse sagas were short stories, after having decent storylines for several books to fall back to the short stories was disappointing the way the Norse Mythology Book by Gaiman. The different perspectives was interesting but would have been more fun if it was about the story in the books so far, in parallel the way Orson Scott Card did in the Ender’s Game series

Must read for Magnus Chase fans!

What a great book! Each story is about one of Magnus’s friends with Thor running into each one of them (quite literally). Each story is read by a different narrator giving each character their own personality. If you love Hotel Valhalla and floor 19, listen to this book!!
