Waiting on Wednesday #14 : The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday!  Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly featured hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight the not yet released books that I wish were in my hot little hands right now.

This week I am waiting on The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1) by Rick Riordan.  Being released in Oz on October 6, this is the first book in the newest series by Rick Riordan.
I love both Percy Jackson series' and think they are a lot of  fun so I am excited for this new series with a new main character and Norse Gods.  Its also kinda nice to be able to start reading a series from the outset and join in with ongoing excitement rather than finally catching on way after the last book has been released.
I am also really excited as I have managed to pre-order a signed copy from Booktopia!!

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 an uncle he's never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. His uncle 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 . . .
