Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series and the Kane Chronicles series, has revealed the cover for the launch of his next series. The Sword of Summer is the first installment in the new middle grade series Chase & The Gods of Asgard.
The series is about a boy named Magnus Chase. He’s a troubled kid living on the streets of Boston since his mother’s death. An uncle he barely knows tracks him down and fills him in on an unbelievable secret—he’s the son of a Norse god. For the first time in centuries, the Nine Worlds of Viking myth are coming together again, bringing warring civilizations closer and closer. With conflict close on the horizon, Magnus suddenly finds himself on a quest to find a weapon that has been missing since the dawn of time to prevent doomsday.
Check out the first cover in the series below and let us know if you think it will live up to Riordan’s epic adventures from previous books!
