IT’S HERE! THE COVER OF RICK RIORDAN’S FIRST BOOK IN HIS NEW SERIES INVOLVING NORSE MYTHOLOGY! BEHOLD THE SWORD OF SUMMER.
John Rocco is an artistic genius. If I wanted someone to illustrate my life, I would choose him (because Claude Monet is dead unfortunately). This cover is absolutely beautiful–the colors, the WOLF, Magnus, everything.
I’ve read the first chapter and the excerpt from chapter 2 and I’m not sure how I feel about this series. I’ve gone through the motions with Rick Riordan and with the Heroes of Olympus series, I have lowered my expectations BUT I’m still excited! I mostly really want to read Magnus Chase because Loki. Plus, Annabeth was mentioned but I wonder how extensively she will be a part of the series seeing as she in Greek. I’m waiting until I read Sword of Summer to make a factual judgement.
I’m liking the look Magnus has got going on here. Shaggy blond hair and what not. However, he looks a lot like a son of Thor and I really hope he isn’t because how basic would that be? As previous books would have it though, Rick has been pretty consistent with his originality so I have a feeling Magnus is the son of some other god.
I don’t know man but I can’t wait for October. x)
