Waiting on Wednesday: The Sword of Summer

New WoW“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My WoW this week is The Sword of the Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1) by Rick Riordan, set to release October 6, 2015.


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, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.

One day, he’s tracked down by a man he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. The man 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.

When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision.

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

I’m so excited about this book! I love his writing, so I will be definitely be getting this book.

What’s your “waiting on” pick this week?

  1. I still need to read the Percy Jackson series. I’ve started the first book, but can’t seem to find the time to finish it! This sounds great, though! Thanks for dropping by my WOW! 🙂
