9.18 {BookFlix Friday} Rick Riordan is at it again… #MagnusChase

Today is

Few things can draw a reader to a new book like a book trailer can.

Get the popcorn ready.

Lights…Camera…Action!


Each year I have a bunch of students who like Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Each year I have a couple students who are Rick Riordan fanatics who have read nearly every book in each of his series.

Witness Delaney’s summer reading postcard to me:

Here’s a quick review before we jump to what’s NEW—and the trailer.

I hope his fans are ready for more! Because here comes his new series based on Norse gods:
The Sword of Summer

 

The Sword of Summer

Magnus Chase has seen his share of trouble. Ever since that terrible night two years ago when his mother told him to run, he has lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, staying one step ahead of the police and truant officers.

 

One day, Magnus learns that someone else is trying to track him down—his uncle Randolph, a man his mother had always warned him about. When Magnus tries to outmaneuver his uncle, he falls right into his clutches. Randolph starts rambling about Norse history and Magnus’s birthright: a weapon that has been lost for thousands years.

 

The more Randolph talks, the more puzzle pieces fall into place. Stories about the gods of Asgard, wolves, and Doomsday bubble up from Magnus’s memory. But he doesn’t have time to consider it all before a fire giant attacks the city, forcing him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents. . .  .

 

Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die.

This book will be born on October 6th. (And yes, I know without looking that the 6th is a Tuesday because books are born on Tuesdays.)

  1. Hi. Today I was reading Ungifted and it is a really good book. I also watched that video of the man who stuttered on America’s Got Talent. THAT WAS SO AWESOME! I felt so bad for the man! But then he got that golden Button, and that was what he deserved. It was awesome!
