Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Book 2: The Hammer of Thor Rick Riordan read online review & book description:

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.

    This series had a lot going for it. It was all ruined for me when the gender-fluid nonsense got involved. It makes me not want to read the third one.

    This is definitely my most favorite book series of all time. All the characters are all very interesting and unique and the diversity is mind-blowing! There are all sorts of different races, religions, orientations, and abilities and all of them are done so respectfully without the use of stereotypes or assumptions. Poorly known identities are politely explained by the characters themselves, ensuring no stereotypes persist. It’s amazing and I’ve never seen anything like it!

    This book—and frankly, this series—is some of the best things I’ve ever read. And I don’t mean that lightly. My heart leaps for almost every character in this book (bar Loki, for obvious reasons), and it’s unbelievable how well you represent. Politics have nothing to do with it—Rick Riordan, you are a hero and a true ally. Just thinking about it makes me choke up a little, because I’ve only read about one book not by Rick with a canonical LGBTQ+ character that actually had a role in the series; and even in that book, the entire character’s persona was built on their sexuality. There isn’t anything wrong with embracing and loving your identity, but when it starts to take over a character—especially in writing—it’s often a good indicator that the author either doesn’t really know what they’re talking about or doesn’t know how to represent it correctly. Rick Riordan, throughout almost all of your works of writing, you have made characters that we not only fall in love with, but connect ourselves to. We see ourselves in them; we know that, even if it’s only through a page, somebody out there knows that we’re not alone. Not just with queer or genderqueer characters, too; when I mentioned to friends that there was a bada** Muslim female character in this series, they were all ecstatic and in admiration. No one is there for charity or shoo-ins in this series or any of Rick’s other series. They’re there because it makes those of us feel like we have a family, a home with these characters. They help educate those who may not otherwise be able to grasp that sort of understanding. They are what the people in the world need to know. In short, this book is incredible. Please read it, and I’d strongly suggest the Heroes of Olympus and Kane Chronicles series as well. Thank you endlessly, Rick Riordan!

    I personally really liked the first book but was completely put off by the constant barrage of transgender idealism. Once you bring politics and your own personal opinion and force feeding them to your readers it can really ruin a good book.

    Hey Rick, stick to writing books, not politics. This is really annoying to me. I’m so tired of famous people thinking they have to put their political views into their work. The first Magnus Chase book was super good, but this one was just not the same level. I think you were trying so hard to put your political views into this you forgot to actually make this one just as good as the first. I mean, really? I don’t need Alex reminding me that he is transgender every five pages. This series could have been SUPER good. But... welp. That didn’t happen. What was wrong with the first one? Why did you change so freaking much? In the first one, the characters were funny, well thought out, and, well, perfect. I loved that book. But you ruined the series because you wanted people to know your views. I don’t appreciate that. My point is, you are a author. You are not a politician. Please act that way.
