Waiting on Wednesday (16)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, which spotlights the releases we’re eagerly awaiting.

The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1) by Rick Riordan
Release Date: October 6th 2015

Goodreads Synopsis:
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 an uncle he's never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. His uncle 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 finished the final book in Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus series and since I didn’t get the closure I wanted needed, I will take anything even remotely related to the world he created. The connection with Magnus Chase looks to be really interesting and I’m hoping for some crossovers no matter how trivial because I haven’t said goodbye just yet. Before I read the series though I was already looking forward to more of Rick Riordan’s writing.
