The second book in this number one, bestselling series from the creator of Percy Jackson.

Thor's hammer is missing again.

The thunder god has a habit of misplacing his weapon - which happens to be the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn't just lost, it has fallen into enemy hands.

Magnus Chase and his friends must find it, fast. If they don't, the mortal worlds will be defenceless against an onslaught of giants, and the Nine Worlds will burn. But the only person who can help them is the gods' worst enemy, Loki - and the price he wants is very high.

I loved this book. I have read the first book called Magnus Chase and the sword of the Summer and feel you need to read it first to really 'get' this book.
The book is a story about norse mythology in the modern world. Its full of adventure and excitement and I never new what would happen next.
I liked it because its very funny at points and its a fast pace. It made me want to keep reading and I finished it in a couple of days. Its a very thick book. Its got 457 pages.
I cant wait for the next one to be published

This book is really good with an awesome story line.  It is about Magnus Chase and his friends on a quest to find the greatest weapon in history (the hammer of Thor).  I recommend this book to anyone who really enjoys adventure stories and fast paced books.

When the thunder god's hammer goes missing again it's up to Magnus and his gang to find it . But will they succeed?
This book is amazing! It is such a funny tale with plenty of daring ( and sometimes stupid ) exploits from Magnus. And with Alex around, floor 19 has got their work cut out.

This book cover is amazing, I was interested in the book before I even opened it. I have never read a book this big before but it was so good that I really got into the story and wanted to read on.
The book is about Thor's hammer which has been stolen you meet some great characters even giants! There are lots of action scenes and some parts of the book are eerie. I look forward to reading other books from this series.

i really enjoyed this book but i think it would have been better if i had read the first book in the series first as it was a little bit hard to follow but on reading the other reviews i think that this was due to me not reading the other story.
i liked magnus and thought the book was really good and cant wait to read the first book and then this one again

We started to read this book together, and it is a great adventure story for fans of rick Riordan's other books. This book is a great mix of action adventure and legends. it is useful to have the glossary at the back to clarify the pronunciation and terms not found in modern language. This is a great well written story that has humour and facts as well as posing questions for the reader. An engaging read and one that I think we will come back to.

I really enjoyed this book and read it from cover to cover within the space of around a week.  I didn't want to put it down!  

It is a book about Norse Gods, which I found really interesting and not something like I have read before.

I thought the story was really exciting, and funny in places.  It kept me wanting to read throughout to find out what happened.

Although a little longer than previous books I have read I really enjoyed it and would read others like it.

We enjoyed reading this book together.  My daughter who is only just 9 struggled to read it on her own as there are lots of modern day references and norse mythology references that she needed explaining.  But this didn't stop her enojying the story which is really interesting.  This didn't disappoint after having read the Percy Jackson series.
