For the perspective of the protagonist Magnus Chase.

For my reading journals, I chose to read Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The sword of summer by Rick Riordan. This book is a Fantasy Fiction book and it is told in the perspective of the protagonist Magnus Chase. Magnus is a 16 year old demigod and son of the god Frey, the god of peace, prosperity, and marriage. He tells the readers about how his journey in life has been. I liked this book very much because it is an easy but fun and interesting book to read. This book also taught me a bit about gods and their characteristics. I write this book report too encourage other people too read this novel by Rick Riordan. The setting of this book is all of the nine realms of asgard: Niflheim, Muspelheim, Asgaro, Miogaro, Jotunheim, Vadaheim, Alfheim, Svartalfheim, and Helheim all from norse mythology. Although, the main places in the book are: Boston, were Magnus Chase lived, Valhalla, an hotel in which a train arrived and left brave dead people that were sons of gods, and the island of the wolf,  where the worst wolf is kept at, it is very isolated and it only appears every so often.   The protagonist of the book is Magnus Chase, he is sixteen years old, he is a teenager and a homeless boy, he is blonde and has blue eyes and he is son of Frey the god of peace and prosperity. There are two antagonist in this book: Loki, he has black hair and he is the god of Mischief, and Surt, the god of fire giants. Sam and Blitz are two secondary characters, Sam is one of the few Valkyries that survived a terrible masacre, and Blitz is Magnus best friend. The plot of the book is that Magnus starts out homeless, then his uncle Randolph finds him. Randolph talks too Magnus about his father and he told him that his father was a god. Magnus is able to call for the Sword of Summer when an evil guy (Surt, a god) shows up too take it. The Sword was special because it was the only weapon that could defeat Surt. Then Magnus fought Surt, Surt kills Magnus but he loses the sword. Then Magnus is taken too Valhalla were he had no idea why he ended up in there. After Magnus breaks out of Valhalla he finds out  that Surt and Loki were out too destroy the world by starting Ragnarok ( is the battle at the end of the world. It is to be fought between the gods, led by Odin; and the fire giants led by Loki and Surt.)
