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.

"In the second book of Riordan's newest series, narrator Kieran Culkin focuses on capturing the often befuddled voice of Magnus, a demigod whose father is the Norse god Frey. Culkin heightens the story's humor and dives into the action as Magnus and his friends seek to retrieve Thor's lost hammer and prevent Loki from marrying off his daughter to a giant. Culkin doesn't create distinct voices for each member of the large cast of characters, so listeners may occasionally lose track of who's speaking. However, the majority of listeners, especially fans of the series, will care most about Magnus himself, whose kind and self-deprecating nature shines through. This blend of fantasy and realistic fiction is another crowd-pleaser. A.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
