“My name is Magnus Chase. I’m sixteen years old. This is the story of how my life went downhill after I got myself killed.”

I knew I’d enjoy this because a) I’m always sucker for mythology of any kind and b) I love Rick Riordan’s humorous writing. The Sword of Summer is an expectedly fun read with great characters, action, and drama. Magnus is a snarky and sarcastic narrator whose POV is a blast to read from. Blitzen, Hearthstone, and Samirah are all wonderful characters who are so easy to follow. I did think that Annabeth’s cameo was kinda wasted. I mean it was so small, I was almost like why bother. But that’s such a small thing it really doesn’t even matter. There was such a strong set up for book 2, I kinda can’t wait to see what happens next.
