Honestly, this might be one of the best books I've read all year, narrated by one of my favorite narrators. If you have any love for Norse mythology or for the Percy Jackson world, please read Magnus Chase. It's a brilliant trilogy with a diverse set of characters that you can't help but love. All I could ask for is for more of it. Crouch is a fantastic narrator that breathes life into these characters and makes the story sing.

Riordan saved the best for last
This book was a lot of fun to read. It definitely had a different feel than the previous two, in part to the less than stellar narrator switch. The biggest change was the presence, or lack there of, of Loki. The dream sequences were at a minimum and felt like an integral part of the story, instead of a device to move the plot along. You didn't have the one character with more information than the rest popping up randomly. Instead, you learned as the characters did making the story that much more immersive. The ending wasn't what I expected but fit perfectly to the hero. Magnus is an atypical hero. He's a better healer than a fighter, (his weapon does best when he's not holding it) and is better at supporting his team than leading it, and the ending worked well in that context.
The narrator switch will be annoying for fans of the series, but the story shines through anyway. The Percy Jackson series are definitely better, but this series is so different you can enjoy it on its own. Definitely worth you time.
