The gang from Valhalla are back. Usually, I am meh about the Riordan extra books- they typically cater to the superfan of that particular series and that isn't precisely us with any of the series so far. We like Percy, of course, but the Magnus stories are our actual heritage, so they have come out on top of books we will re-read.
This story (or stories) are told from all the supporting characters point of view, Hearthstone in particular and Odin had stories that I would love to be book length. You'll meet Hearthstone, Blitzen, Samirah, Alex, Jack, T.J., Mallory, Halfborn, and more in this book. It's perfect for the reader that wasn't ready for the Magnus Chase series to end. In full disclosure, we pre-order all the Riordan books and now those of his imprint as well so my review comes from that perspective.
Please note that I received a free advance E ARC of this book from NetGalley without a review requirement or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that, I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
