Book Review The Sword of Summer

The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #1)The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Uh well, this is my opinion. My first impression from this novel was another demi god story, another version of Percy Jackson. If Percy Jakson came in Roman and Egypt mitology, Magnus case happen to be in Norns mitology. Four demigod heroes (Magnus, Sam Heartstone and Blitzen) were working together to prevent the ragnarok or the doomsday. The interesting part is the main character, Magnus Chase, was already dead so his adventure is an afterlife adventure. The idea that someone could have heroic and deadly adventure after someone died was kind of a fresh ingredient in this book that separate this book from its predecessors, I kinda like that idea. Second, the effort to develop divers heroes in this Novel by introducing Samira Al Abbas or Sam (the second main character ) as a muslim girl who wearing hijab was also interesting, but I ended up realize that altough it was mentioned somewhere in the book that Sam is a moslem girl, I’ve never read that she was requesting a time out during a battle or a journey or a conversation to pray. That’s weird because my moslems friends pray five times a day. Another question is if Samira is a Moslem how can she also believes that her father is a god? Put a side that it was Loki, a badass guy. Anyway samira was a cool, brave and loyal friend in this novel, I kinda like her too I mean I like all the four main characters. Heartsone was a deaf elf who also possed high magic and Blitzen was a fashion expert who also fought giants bravely. The last thing that I like from this Novel is it has several chapters for cooling down after the climax. I enjoyed the cooling down chapters (the 4 or 3 last chapters) just like I enjoyed a relaxation after having workout.
