The Sword of Summer

Magnus Chase is a homeless kid living on the streets of Boston when he is attacked by a fantastic creature.  He finds out that is related to a Norse god, and that his destiny is bound to either saving or ending the world.  Armed with a magical sword, loyal friends, sarcasm, and a undying love of falafel, he rolls with it.  And adventure ensues.

The Run

This book felt like an episode of a serial TV show like NCIS, only not quite as good.  Maybe like Hawaii 5-0.  Enjoyable enough characters, enough action to keep it interesting, and will be continued next week at the same day and time.
