Will the World End?
Reviewed in the United States on October 12, 2017
In the conclusion to the trilogy, Magnus Chase & Co. are tasked with preventing Ragnarok. To do this they must sail eastward, to the Old World (if that sounds familiar then that is because we saw something similar in The Heroes of Olympus series). Now Magnus, Samirah, Alex, Heath, Blitz and the rest of floor 19 sail to Norway to prevent Loki from launching the ship that will allow the forces of the dead and the Giants to begin Ragnarok. They don't get too much help from the Gods because that would make it too easy and then the book would be depressingly short.
Riordan's book is as humorous as always. I think my favorite part was the way he described Aegir as a hipster interested in microbrews, stuck in the express line at a Whole Foods because he just wanted to buy his matcha smoothie but ahead of him were tons of individuals who did not respect the sanctity of the express lane. As someone who has found himself in a similar situation at Whole Foods (thought it was Maple Water for me), I found this hilarious. In addition there are hilarious scenes involving giant metal ducks.
The book is a great conclusion to the trilogy. Though I wish this were a five-parter and we had two more books with these characters, Ah well, maybe they will appear in some future books as Annabeth and Percy have appeared here. Here's hoping.
