Meme: "Waiting on" Wednesday - The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to highlight books yet to be published that they can't wait to read.

This week, I am looking forward to:

 The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

Publication Date: October 6, 2015
Goodreads Summary:

Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.

One day, he’s tracked down by a man he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. The man tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god.

The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years.

When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision.

Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .

Why: I have been reading Rick Riordan since he published the middle books of the Percy Jackson series. After reading so much of his work, I'm always curious to see what he'll release next. And honestly, I saw this new series coming a mile away. Norse gods? That was the inevitable next move on his part. :) I'm super excited to see what he does.

Happy Reading!
