What’s this? What’s this? There’s something very wrong. What’s this? There are people singing songs. Oh, wait. It’s December. The countdown to Christmas is on. Please help me.
Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan
Summary: My name is Magnus Chase. These days, I’m one of Odin’s immortal warriors, but that doesn’t stop people trying to kill me all the time. Loki the trickster god is free from his chains. He’s put together a crew of giants and zombies to sail Naglfar, the Ship of the Dead, in a battle against the Norse gods. If he succeeds, the final battle of Ragnarok will extinguish all the worlds.
With help from Percy Jackson and my cousin Annabeth, and with friends by my side, I have to sail across the oceans to reach Naglfar before Midsummer’s Day. The only problems are the angry sea gods, hostile giants and evil fire-breathing dragon in the way. But even if we survive the journey I’ll need more than just Jack, my talking sword, to beat Loki. I must find a magical elixir so deadly that it will either make me powerful enough to defeat Loki and put him back in chains for good … or destroy me entirely.
What’s on your TBR this month? I want to read all of the books in the Magnus Chase series but only the Ship of the Dead is new to me.
