Wow, I think my brain just might have had a little drop out.
I only saw Magnus Chase and it was like my fingers were moving by themselves.
I didn't even know there was more to come but since I love Magnus and Alex and all their friends this is so going on my TBR.

Thank you Uncle Rick! <3
This was a lot of fun, and it was great seeing our characters again. My favorite stories were definitely T.J.'s and Mallory's! ...more

“I shouldn’t have been startled that he could speak – after all, I’m dead too and I can talk just fine – but I near about jumped out of my skin when he did.”

There is one thing in which I can always count on Riordan to do and that is to make just relax and have a good laugh. This was, of course, no exception.

What can I say about this one? Not much I don't think. It's a nice collection of short stories that take us to this almost ridiculous adventures that our beloved characters

I was actually kinda hoping of more Magnus and Alex interaction but sadly there's none. Nonetheless it was still a good read.

PS. I badly needed more of Rick Riordan's humor. Please publish another series huehue

Wisdom can be gleaned from any source if only one looks hard enough.

I enjoyed this little continuation of the Magnus Chase trilogy with characters from the series that we really didn't get to hear much from or we heard little from them during the series. Hearthstone, Blitzen, Samirah, Alex, Jack, T.J, Mallory and Halfborn all have their own little story telling what they are getting up to after the events of the last book in the series

I need more Alex Fierro and the rest of the gang in my life. Yes. I NEED THIS NOW PLEASE AND THANK YOU!

Wait, Magnus is "off visiting his cousin, Annabeth"?? Will he be in a TOA book? Will he meet little Estelle?????? So many questions, such a long wait!

(Now pardon me whilst I mark the release date on my calendar and lose my mind waiting until I can get my hands on this beauty.)

Actual rating: 3.5/5 stars ⭐⭐⭐.5

I enjoyed seeing more of these characters (especially Hearthstone and Alex), but some of these stories (despite being enjoyable) were just too short and I felt disconnected! Still-I'm glad I read this, and I would definitely recommend reading it if you were a fan of the trilogy!

This was a very fun read. I enjoyed it but i had hoped there would be more of magnus in this book. But none the less it was great.

Of course this book didn't have Magnus Chase because it was the time for the rest of the gang to shine. Like the title says this book has 9 stories set in Nine worlds of Norse mythology and has a story set in each World. And the Cover tells you about another common theme Thor is running through all the Nine Worlds to complete 10 million steps to be able to appear on a TV show on Midgard (Earth) and he does all this while wearing only a leather Daily Duke, oh how I wish that it would be on the co ...more

I SEE A RIORDAN BOOK, I BUY THE RIORDAN BOOK. I'm sorry but I'm just a huge trash for every book that he writes. If ever Uncle Rick decides to write a collection of haikus or say... grocery receipts, I will still buy it.

Of course, when I saw the opportunity to buy this one, I TOOK IT and I regret nothing. I absolutely love the Magnus Chase series and I am CRAVING FOR MORE CONTENT. I was sad when I found out that Magnus won't make an appearance on this one but I still loved every word of this bo

"Wisdom can be gleaned from any source if only one looks hard enough."

It's always fun and refreshing reading one of Uncle Rick's works. I just like his writing so much. And his sense of humor is literally the best.
Really wished Magnus was in there though.
"Some days you are the ax, some days you are the decapitated head."

There was a distinct lack of Magnus in these stories. While I enjoyed hearing from the gang, especially Hearthstone, there was nothing exceptional about these stories.

Getting the opportunity to read about these characters again was a huge blessing because I missed them enormously since the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series had ended last year. This time we get read short stories which were told from different pov's and it almost felt like coming home to Hotel Valhalla

I received a copy of this book from Disney-Hyperion via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

9 from the Nine Worlds is the latest from Rick Riordan's Gods of Asgard series. Like other of his books, 9 from the Nine Worlds is more of a companion book which consists of nine short stories. Each chapter, or story, is told from the point of view of one of Magnus’s friends and each travels to one of the Nine Worlds. We get to see Hearthstone, Alex Fiero, Halfborn, and Blitzen as well as other cha

It was so much fun to revisit the worlds and friends of Magnus Chase, whose series ended much too soon, in my opinion. This short collection is a fun jaunt through all nine worlds of the Norse mythologies, as the title implies, but it is so much more. The combination of literary detail with contemporary, light-hearted writing and characters gives Riordan a place of his own in the genre and in the hearts of his fans. Another winner, for sure.

A quick fun read, somewhat funny, somewhat disappointing.

No Magnus. No Magnus/Alex continuation story.

Alex (my personal favorite character) has his/her own story at the end as well as making a relatively minor appearance in two other stories.

Overarching story: Thor running through the 9 worlds in tight shorts and leaving fart trails.

That is all.

Well, it's Rick Riordan, which makes it an automatic win for me! It was delightful to come back to the Magnus Chase mythos and get a little look at what everyone's up to-- the couples all as cute as ever. ...more

“Buddy, I insult everyone.” I waved my daggers. “See these? They’re sharp, but not as sharp as my tongue.” Or your fangs, I added to myself as the dragon loomed in closer to inspect my blades.
“Wow. Those are pointy.” Nidhogg looked genuinely impressed. “Are your insults really sharper than that?”
“Mister, that question is so dumb it makes me think your brain is like Odin’s left eye socket—completely empty.”

I have one (1) complaint and it is that this book was way too short. And now that I think a

Such a fun read! A collection of 9 short stories told from the 9 worlds of Norse mythology with some of the characters you don’t really get to hear from during the Magnus Chase series.
These stories were fun and quick and definitely worth the read!

“AWWW, YOU two are so cute together it makes me sick. So I’m going back to my own room.”
I’m not sure Mallory and Halfborn even heard me when I left, they were lip-locking so hard. Seeing them like that almost made me miss Magnus. Almost.”
“He thrust his hand in the air and summoned his sword of pure white flame. The gods and goddesses cowered. Throwing his head back and laughing, Surt grew to his full giant size. “You minor, forgotten, pathetic deities! So easy to bend to my will. Not one of you would dare to defy me!”
I chose that moment to shape-shift into a bee, buzz up Surt’s teeny-tiny nose, and jab him with my stinger.
With a howl of pain, Surt dropped his sword and shrank to his previous size. I changed into my true form.
“I dare.”
I whipped one end of my golden garrote around his neck and yanked it tight. Then I snatched up his flame sword and with one upward flick, sliced off his pubescent nose. “Jack and Magnus send their regards.”
Surt lunged for me. I transformed into a bighorn sheep and head-butted him right where his nose used to be. Then I changed back to human, tightened the garrote until his eyes bulged, and threatened him with his own sword. “Come at me again,” I warned, “and you’ll regret it.”
I surveyed the stunned deities. “If one einherji can do this, imagine what all of us can do. And will do, come Ragnarok. We are not destined to win, but we will fight with honor. We would welcome you on our side of the fight. But, if you must side with him”—I gave the garrote a vicious tug and was rewarded with a gurgle from Surt—“know this: I will personally hunt you down on the Last Battlefield of Vigridr and see that you are sent straight to Ginnungagap. The choice is yours.”
The deities vanished.”
