Summary

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.

Read too fast

It may just be me but I feel the narrator reads too fast at x1 speed, if you slow it down it's too slow. I couldn't find a happy median and so found the story rushed and not the relaxing listen that I hoped for. Although the story itself is well written and enjoyable.

Amazing

A great book full of Valkyries and a talking swords, the only thing is that the narrator changes after every book.
But other than that it was great.

Loving the series

Story was yet another great entry. I honestly love every character with my favourites being Harth and Alex.
I have to say I love the representation in these books and it's very refreshing and really adds to the characters and world.

Performance from the narrator was great too.
10/10

Culkin is a great narrator

Liked Culkin’s reading infinitely more than the guy who did the first book. As always from Riordan, this is crammed with nonstop fun and adventure, with the perfect amount of character building and sentiment

The story just doesn't hold it together

I've enjoyed the other series but this story just isn't compelling enough or makes enough sense to hold it together.

Another great addictions to the series.

I like how we get to know more about Hearthstone's background in the second volume in the series. The initial setup for the plot felt more force than Mr. Roardian's usually cleverly plotted tales, but overall, the characters were great (including the new addition to floor 19) and the jokes were funny. :) Can't wait until the next book becomes available in my country.

Superb

Amazing voice modulation....if this guy doesn't voice the sequel I'll be very disappointed..
but if they got a girl to say the female roles even better
