WHY WE CARE

T his book is amazing. Yes, it is a bit like the Percy Jackson series, with a boy related to gods, a quest, good friends and ancient myths. However, it does have its differences. For a start, the narrator, Magnus Chase, dies at the beginning of the book and tells the story in Valhalla the home of dead, brave Viking warriors. As he travels through the Viking worlds, we learn about old myths and legends. There will be war and the world will be destroyed and return to the black depths from which it came. Magnus sets off on the quest and is helped by various companions — Blitzer the dwarf, Hearthstone the elf, a Valkyrie called Samirah and his cousin Annabeth Chase.

The line between cynical repetition and elegant variation is as fine in adventure stories as it is in — well, as it is in that line the members of Spinal Tap sapiently discovered between clever and stupid. Riordan, a teacher before he was a writer, taught a generation of American children not just the names but also much of the substance, the emotional architecture, of Greek mythology. The classical panoply of gods and demigods — satyrs and centaurs and even one girl who, quite properly and unpuritanically, was sired by Zeus and born to a television starlet — were all made new. In the new book, Norse myths are given the same carefully detailed exposition. The magic craft of dwarves, the mission of the Valkyries, the surprisingly variable sizes of giants, even the division between the godlike orders of Aesir and Vanir — all are made beautifully clear. Magnus, our hero, is the son of Frey, the god of plenty, where Percy was the son of Poseidon, and so his sword is the summer sword. It pits him against giant eagles and sea serpents, with a diverse coalition that includes a young Muslim Valkyrie, in a desperate struggle to put off the day of Ragnarok, the apocalyptic battle the forces of good are doomed to lose.
