Title: The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Book 2) | Author: Rick Riordan | Publication Date: October 4, 2015 | Publisher: Disney Hyperion | Pages: 480 | Recommended Age: 10+
The second installment in Rick Riordan’s blockbuster Norse mythology series has Magnus and friends helping the god of thunder find his missing weapon before all Muspellheim breaks loose.
Thor’s hammer is missing again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon–the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn’t just lost, it has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can’t retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately, the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer’s return is the gods’ worst enemy, Loki–and the price he wants is very high.
Companion Guide to Magnus Chase
So you’ve made it to Valhalla. Now what?
This “who’s who” guide to the gods, goddesses, and other important figures of Norse mythology was commissioned by Helgi, who, after more than a millennium as manager of Hotel Valhalla, became fed up with answering the same questions from newly deceased heroes at check-in. The profiles provide essential stats, interviews, and personal reflections so you can identify the gods and avoid those awkward introductions. Handy facts about other beings round out this go-to tome. You’ll never see Ratatosk as a cute little rodent or confuse a dwarf with an elf ever again!
Prize: One (1) winner will receive a prize pack containing the following:
- a copy of Magnus Chase: The Hammer of Thor
- a copy of official companion book: For Magnus Chase: Hotel Valhalla Guide to the Norse Worlds
- Hammer of Thor pen
- Hotel Valhalla Swell-Style water bottle
- Hotel Valhalla luggage tag
