Riordan has written some entertaining series. He writes for the young adult audience but folks of all ages can enjoy his stories. If you’re in the mature range, the reading is fast and don’t expect to broaden your vocabulary. However, Riordan provides an entertaining twist on ancient mythologies.
Here’s my recommendations:
1. Percy Jackson series - Excellent! Lots of engaging characters to enjoy and care about. Entertaining plots.
2. The Kane series - Good. Same as above.
3. Apollo series - Good. It’s hilarious to hear Apollo’s god-y perspectives. Meg is a bore, though, and my least favorite character to date in the Percy Jackson world.
4. Magnus Chase - Okay. The character personalities are reboots of Percy Jackson. I kinda of care about them and kind if don’t. The series is more violent. And there’s the identity politics agenda.
P.S. for all people in the comments that seem to hate this series because it’s “too inclusive” or “pandering to liberals”: sorry that you think lgbtq+ people are some kind of rare less-than-human species and that having several non-white characters is unrealistic. It’s not. Having an all/majority cis non-poc cast would be quite strange actually. Alex, tj, blitz, and sam are the only blatantly stated poc characters, while magnus, mallory, halfborn, and hearth are stated or coded as white. Out of those, only two (magnus and alex) are clearly written as not heterosexual and alex is trans-genderfluid. The rest are up for interpretation as they are not stated outright to be heterosexual or part of the lgbtq+ community. Not to mention the slew of side characters that don’t have gender or sexuality commented on. Which means that even in a book that has far more representation than any other mainstream book I’ve read, its not some sort of leftist propaganda so many close minded people like to claim it is... it’s just more realistic (in terms of diversity).
Definitely worth the read.

I'm now sort of wishing I had interspersed reading these with the Apollo Trials book, but alas, what's done is done and I can't deny my binger nature.
Now, about this book...
Magnus Chase has fully stolen my heart. I am no longer a skeptic. I love this boy, and I love his story.
Samirah is a badass queen and I am thriving in this boy/girl friendship that never once wavered.
Hearth and Blitz are back and better than ever, and while we explored some of Blitzen's background in The Sword of Summer, we got to get to know Hearth more in this one, and it only made me love and admire him more.
Now. I don't want to get spoilery. But if a single being in this universe touches a hair on Alex Fierro's head I will eat them, and excrete them, and feed them to the flowers. Protect A.F. until the end. (And Mr. Riordan, you better not be getting my hopes up for nothing.)
I don't know what else to say. This book is rich with Norse Mythology, the old stories, yes, but this new, exciting, funny, moving new one as well.
Riordan keeps upping his game by representing more and more diverse people in his books and I am. here. for. it. These characters aren't used as tools, they're not here to embellish the background, they come through with their messages loud and clear.
Only now that I'm writing this (with watery eyes) do I realize how much I truly loved this. I'm so glad these books are out there. Hopefully, like Odin's Valkyries, they'll find heroes when they most need them and show them they are worthy.
A cada livro da série me da mais vontade de ler o próximo. Magnus e seus amigos são tão incríveis que lidam com as desventuras da jornada de formas inteligentes, algumas partes das vezes.
O livro aborda de temas comuns/complexos na sociedade de uma forma bem tranquila e fácil de entender.
Você que está pensando em ler algo novo, esta é uma ótima opção (boa opção para quem pretende treinar a leitura da língua inglesa, já que o tema é interessante e nunca fica chato).
Regarding the hardcover,really nice and solid,with MC initialed on the cover,under the dust jacket. Definitely worth buying.
