Not my favourite book
Reviewed in the United States on December 3, 2018
I did really love the Kane Chronicles books and when I heard that Rirdan had written a book featuring Norse Mythology, I ordered it. I was so disappointed. It did started well from the beginning, but when Magnus arrived in Valhalla, it all got plain weird. I didn`t like the modern take on the elements from the Norse Mythology. I mean, Hotel Valhalla, Thor watching HD TV on his hammer and other weird things. Didn`t like the humour either.
Another thing I didn`t like was, Spoiler Ahead,
that when Magnus and his friends confronted the Fenrir Wolf, Magnus`s Valkyrie friend shapeshifted to a lion. What a cliche and stereotype! She should have turned in to a wolf instead to make the fight more equal. (Yes, I`m a wolf lover.) and I also got sick of hearing Magnus complain over anything that looked like a wolf.
I don`t think I`m gonna read any more books in this series. Not my style.
