Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour

With a plot as comfy as a well-worn sweater, Matson somehow wowed me into a 5-star review. Want to know why?

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.
