Rick Riordan is the author of three # 1 New York Times best-selling series with millions of copies sold throughout the world: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the Kane Chronicles, and the Heroes of Olympus. His Greek myth collection, Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods, was a #1 New York Times bestseller as well. His previous novels for adults include the hugely popular Tres Navarre series, winner of the top three awards in the mystery genre.
Riordan shows again that any mythology can be turned into a modern story. The Norse gods and goddesses and the history was well written and researched. The Norse mythology was always a favorite of mine and this book definitely does for Norse mythology what Percy Jackson and Jason Grace did for Greek and Roman mythology.
