15 hours 21 minutes
Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother's mysterious death, he's lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.

One day, he's tracked down by an uncle he barely knows-a man his mother claimed was dangerous. Uncle Randolph tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god.

The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years.

When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision.

Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .

I enjoyed the story and the characters. As an adult I wish the characters were read in a manner consistent with their ages, but I also understand the book wasn't written for adults.

Its a great book with all of the familiar feel of his other series. I really like the narration as well. He reminds me a bit of Percy but that's a good thing.

Good story line. A bit for the younger teen reader but still interesting for an adult listener. The narrator spoke too slowly at times and did a novice job trying to change voices especially when voicing a “god” but again not too annoying to the point I would not listen again. Overall entertaining and fun and I will listen to book two.

I enjoyed the book very much. I am not as familiar with Norse mythology so at times I felt lost. I was pretty disappointed with the narration. Very monotone and no real character differentiation. I REALLY loved Jesse Bernstein and Joshua Swanson. They are very gifted in that area.

The sword of summer is so much better than I thought

Awesome book, amazing story, fantastic twists in Norse mythology. I'm not a big fan of the narrator at all, unfortunately. I did find his voice was a little bit better if you increase the play speed a bit.

entertaining but a tad predictable and lost some of its dinstinctivness from other fantasy type series when it went full on sorcery.
