    I found most of the facts about the Norse Gods interesting. Most interesting things I quite enjoy, but this book makes the Norse Gods look like insane teenagers. They do acts which I would never even think about doing. In the end of this I rather be on the sides of the Giants, because they at least have manners. At one part a god decided it would be smart to put his hand in a killer wolfs mouth. Most of the gods are greedy and they hire basically another god to do all their dirty work. Frey (another god) now I think is just dumb at some parts. Frey gives his almighty sword to guy who faces his crush to tell her, he loves her.

    Very good companion to the first book. Debunks some of the Viking myths, and contains a good amount of historical information. I would highly recommend this for readers at the middle school level. Also very good for students with an interest in history and/or mythology, not just readers of the Magnus Chase books.

    If you liked Magnus chase and want to know more about it ,then this is the book to get your hands on.It's a useful book to read because you can get the whole story behind the myths they refer to in Magnus chase . It also gives an insight into Viking history but I wish they had included more information on each god and their back stories. It's written pretty well and has some good illustrations

    Unfortunately there were way too many typos and missing words in the text.
