Magnus Chase, a once-homeless teen, is a resident of the Hotel Valhalla and one of Odin's chosen warriors. As the son of Frey, the god of summer, fertility, and health, Magnus isn't naturally inclined to fighting. But he has strong and steadfast friends, including Hearthstone the elf, Blitzen the dwarf, and Samirah the Valkyrie, and together they have achieved brave deeds, such as defeating Fenris Wolf and battling giants for Thor's hammer, Mjolnir. Now Magnus faces his most dangerous trial yet. His cousin, Annabeth, recruits her boyfriend, Percy Jackson, to give Magnus some pointers, but will his training be enough? Loki is free from his chains. He's readying Naglfar, the Ship of the Dead, complete with a host of giants and zombies, to sail against the Asgardian gods and begin the final battle of Ragnarok. It's up to Magnus and his friends to stop him, but to do so they will have to sail across the oceans of Midgard, Jotunheim, and Niflheim in a desperate race to reach Naglfar before it's ready to sail. Along the way, they will face angry sea gods, hostile giants, and an evil fire-breathing dragon. Magnus's biggest challenge will be facing his own inner demons. Does he have what it takes to outwit the wily trickster god?

                    One boy. One god. One life-or-death contest. Magnus Chase has found the Hammer of Thor, but one thing is still on his to-do list:Destroy Loki, the god of all known evil. Loki is launching Naglfar-- the ship of nails, created from the grotesque toenails of dead men--and certain death. With only an annoying talking sword and some witless or too witful friends that never seem to get along, Magnus may be on the last ever trip of his life. A life threatening wine, an icy winter goddess, an angry god who's LITERALLY stuck in a nutshell--Magnus tells his "wyrd" story with more irony, humor, and sarcasm than ever seen before. This is the last book in the series, and definetly the best by far.A page-turner like this is perfect for a lazy afternoon!

                      This is a good book because it is has Magnus going into hard adventures in rough settings.
