Plot Summary
Literary Divices
Sarcasm
" 'Wow, thanks, ' I said. ' That really answered my question. ' "
Pg. 24
The author's purpose was to add humor to the story so it does not become dull to read and to give personality to the character Magnus Chase.
Idiom
"I was starting to believe him, and that scared the baked beans out of me."
Pg.27
The author's purpose was to entertain the audience.
Simile
". . . but this being Boston, half a dozen runners were chugging along, looking like emancipated seals in their Lycra bodysuits."
Pg. 29
The authors purpose was to compare the runners to seals and to help the readers visualize it.
Rhyme Scheme
"Wrongly chosen, wrongly slain, a hero Valhalla cannot contain. Nine days hence the sun must go east, ere Sword of Summer unbinds the beast."
Pg.102
The author's purpose was to entertain the readers, and this can also be seen as foreshadowing, as it is a prophecy of what has to come.
Metaphor
"Loki's voice was so full of hatred it seemed to make the air burn."
Pg.336
The author's purpose was to helps the readers to picture the scene and to show how angry Loki was.
Rating & Review
I give this book a 10/10 stars because it had many elements that I like in books. That being humor, sarcasm,mythology, and a great plot. It retells the Norse myths in modern times which I think is great because, it connects to the audience better. There was barely any profanity, just like only a couple curse words in it. There are violent scenes in the book, but it does not go overboard on it. It was an amazing book to read i would recommend it to 12+.

11/27/15
Period 1/2
Magnus Chase is your typical homeless teenager who avoids the police and truant officers, but that all ends when he becomes an einherjar. In his stay in Hotel Valhalla he finds out his father is a Norse deity and has received a prophecy. Now that he has escaped from Hotel Valhalla he goes on a quest with Hearthstone, Blitzen, and Samirah to retrieve the Sword of the Summer, but the people who Magnus believes he can trust is not all what they seem.
Character Change
In the begining of the story, Magnus Chase is very sarcastic and does not take that many things seriously, but when he recives a prophecy from the Norns themselves he goes on the quest to complete it. When innocent lives are at stake, Magnus carefully plans out his decisions instead of jumping right in. The little world Magnus lived in just got a whole lot bigger.
