"It took me a while to get into this one, but once I did it was a pretty good book! The jump from Greek to Norse mythology is probably why I took so long to get into it (I'd just finished both Percy Jackson series when I first started this book.) I absolutely loved Magnus, his sense of humor is amazing, he was such a fun narrator! Can't wait to see where Uncle Rick takes this series!"
