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.

Read too fast

This book was totally ruined by the narrator, 1x is way too fast and .75 sounds like the narrator had been drinking. I've wasted a credit on this one ..

Just set the speed to 0.75

I worried seeing the reviews saying Kieran reads too fast but setting the playback to 0.75 his performance was really good.

So funny!

I listen to this while I'm walking around town and I get so many strange looks because I can't stop myself from laughing out loud at Rick Riordan's comedic writing. It is yet another hit from the myth master. I can't wait to listen to the next book.

Excellent story, not sure about the narrator

Another good book from Rick Riordan. Not sure about Kieran Culkin as a narrator.

There are places where I had to zip back and listen again because he was talking so fast. It’s nice to get variations in pace to go along with the pace of the story, but it ruins the flow if I don’t catch what’s said and have to go back. The worst bit is that he’s narrator on book 3. I can’t NOT read it, I have to know what happens 😫

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.

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.
