The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #2) by Rick Riordan

The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #2)  by Rick Riordan

Being a senior in high school, is starting to make me feel old. When I talk about things that the sophomores and freshmen have never heard about. But reading Magnus Chase also makes me feel old, in a different way.  It makes me feel more mature as the plots and characters are still interesting, just a little less complex and a little less engaging. That being said, it does not make the book  bad, I am just realizing that they are no longer for me. This is the second book in the relatively new Magnus Chase series about the Norse gods.  Magnus has finally started adjusting to his new life in Valhalla, but as always the gods never seem to be able to do anything themselves, so Magnus and his friends need to step in to help. I really like the diverse characters that are part of the book as well as, not only is Rick Riordan including diverse characters but he is following up on their cultures and practices to give a full sense of the characters identity. This is a great book for middle school students and anyone interested in Norse Mythology.
