THE HAMMER OF THOR synopsis threatens destruction of The Nine Worlds!
Rick Riordan took to tumblr with the newly released synopsis of the second book in the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series, The Hammer of Thor!
It looks like Magnus’ story will get drastic after the god of thunder loses his oh-so-important hammer, which could very well lead to the end of The Nine Worlds. Uh oh!
Thor’s hammer is missing again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon–the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn’t just lost, it has fallen into enemy hands.
If Magnus Chase and his friends can’t retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately, the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer’s return is the gods’ worst enemy, Loki–and the price he wants is very high.
Thor, Loki, and Magnus? Count is in!
Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Hammer of Thor hits shelves on October 4, 2016. It is currently available for pre-order. Prior to that, Disney Hyperion will release the first book in Rick Riordan’s The Trials of Apollo series, The Hidden Oracle, on May 3, 2016.
