Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan, read by Michael Crouch.

Loki the trickster god is free from his chains. Now he's readying Naglfar, the Ship of the Dead, armed with a host of giants and zombies, to sail against the Norse gods and begin the final battle of Ragnarok. It's up to Magnus Chase and his friends to stop Loki's plans, but to do so they will have to sail across the oceans of Midgard, Jotunheim and Niflheim in a desperate race to reach Naglfar before it's ready to sail on Midsummer's Day.

Along the way, they will face angry sea gods, hostile giants, and an evil fire-breathing dragon who happens to be a former acquaintance. But Magnus's biggest challenge will be facing his own inner demons. To defeat Loki, Magnus will need to use words, not force. This will require finding a magical elixir so deadly that it will either make Magnus Chase powerful enough to out-talk the silver-tongued Loki, or destroy Magnus utterly.

Pretty good

The thing a lot of people are saying is that they don’t like the book because it’s to cheesy, addressing all those people, the book is supposed to be cheesy! That’s what makes it fun! Also,One or two people said that it’s mostly focused on people who are already fans of Rick and less enjoyable for people who are new to him. Well you would have to know and like Rick because this is the third book in the Magnus Chase series!

1.the narrator makes so many mistakes all throughout this book 2.the content is super cheesy. 3.this book is mainly aimed at fans of rick riordans writing not that friendly for new comers.

This one I liked very much!

I’ll admit I’m not a big fan of audiobooks, sometimes I can’t engage with the content, get bored and just drop the audiobook altogether.

This one was amazing!!! Michael Crouch’s performance was phenomenal :) he can make his voice a 100 different ways when the dialogs involve a lot of characters! Loved it very much! Will keep an eye out for more books read by him!

even at nearly 40 I LOVE this series

Rick writes as though each and every character is his best friend! The way Alex has grown is amazing. His understanding of Muslim culture is inciteful. The way it all comes together keeps you entertained to the very last word and leaves you wanting the next book.... like now!

great book ruined by narrator!

This is a good book, slightly predictable, however utterly ruined by the narrator. there isn't a comfortable volume listening level in the car where you have the voice of all the characters and the muted inner voice of Magnus. this is the first audiobook where I wished I had the physical book.

Another great adventure of the huge hearted hero.

The thing I love about Rick's books is that he makes each setting distinct, each character unique and each story memorable.

And the moment in Magnus' hotel room in the last chapter is just perfect. I don't want to spoiler, so I won't say more here. :)
