Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard book one, by Rick Riordan, read by Christopher Guetig.

Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother's mysterious death, he's lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits. One day he's tracked down by an uncle he's never met - who tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god. The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday.

To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years.

didnt know how to pronouce words!

Would you try another book written by Rick Riordan or narrated by Christopher Guetig?

never would i buy anything again narrated by christopher guetig. he cant pronounce anything correctly and his voice is very annoying. its not hard to pronounce these simple words!!

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Awesome story

This is a great story, very enjoyable to listen to. Rick Riordan has done it again, amazing plot and fun and enjoyable characters.Although the narrator wasn't the best choice. He didn't pronounce things properly and at times his tone was too flat/monotone.

I could not stop laughing

The way it was written is just amazing. I didn't think I would like a book about heroes and what-not but I loved it

Brilliantly charming if somewhat hard to get into

The narrator was lively and really held my interest. His variety of voices gave a distinct personality to each character without distracting from the overall story.

Magnus's story is a little messy to begin, with plot elements that struggle to come together at first but persevere and you'll be rewarded with a rich, exciting journey of four friends that celebrate diversity and excitement.

Good Book

I would listen to this again as Magnus and the others are brilliantly written characters portrayed well in this audiobook. I love Magnus's narration and the audiobook format brings the characters to life in a way the page can't. Rick Riordan's books translate well to this format.

Amazing all around.

The narrator of this book took a while to grow on me but now I absolutely admire his work and the enthusiasm he showed when reading this book. The book itself is also unbelievable and amazing with the amount of research must have gone into writing it.

Clever Book <br />

If you know Rick Riodens books you will be familiar with his characters. As you read this book you might be fooled into thinking the author just likes certain names. .... I'm not saying any more

Amazing!

Rick Riordan has done it again! Magnus Chase and the sword of summer was just what I expected. There were twists and turns and I couldn't put it down. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that likes his other books and I would recommend this to anyone who likes action and adventure books!
