    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.

    Discover the lore behind the fantastical world of Magnus Chase. Helgi - the hotel manager - created this book for each hotel guest so that he wouldn't have to answer so many questions at the front desk. It has short entries about the deities, mythical beings, and fantastic creatures from the nine Norse worlds and also contains bonus material including interviews, newspaper articles, short stories and more. The tone is humorous, complementing Rick's series.
